Last Thursday, Thomas woke and got into bed with me, as usual. Normally we snuggle, then nurse, and then snuggle and play before I get in the shower. Thursday we snuggled, and I asked if he was ready to nurse, at which point he normally grins and lunges for the boob, and he did briefly, then pulled off and said, "Water!" I gave him water.
Friday he did the same thing, so I gave him water.
Saturday when I asked, he said, "Noooooooooo." So I gave him water (per his request lol), and for the first time in his life, we only nursed once that day, before bedtime.
He nursed Sunday morning, but not a lot, though he indicated that he wanted to, so we did.
Today we were back to "WATER! WATER!", and he emptied his sippy cup in seconds, and snuggled before letting me know he was ready to get down and play.
I'm not sure what (if anything) I'm looking for by posting this; I guess just sharing it with people who understand how hard the letting-go is. We were already down to pretty much twice a day (by his choice; I was counting on going another year or so), so this will just leave once a day, and it's so sad for me. And I'm interested in what you ladies would do at this point--offering vs not offering--I don't want to push if he's ready to stop, but I don't want him to be ready to stop! (insert foot-stomping smiley )
Sorry for rambling! If you've read this far, I appreciate it.
