    Default So it just hit me

    That I'm nursing a 2 year old now. Wow! I never would have thought I would nurse this long. It was such a fight in the beginning, and now I am so thankful I stuck it out. The first year was really hard, with such a distractible, fighting nursling. The second year has been so nice, even with the occassional acrobatics and lazy teething latch. It just gets better and better with time. I'm truly afraid of the day she weans. But I think we've got a while still. And I'm cherishing every minute of it. I feel so blessed to have made it two years, and am incredibly proud of myself for sticking to it. It's so cool to have a nursling who can tell you that your "nummies are goooooood!"

    Awesome!

    I wish I could still say it gets better with time, and for the most part it does, but gosh, some days I'm ready for my oldest to be done nursing.
