that Joshua would want to go into his crib without nursing first
The past 2 nights he nursed for like 2 seconds and then said "night night bed" and pointed to his crib. I tucked him in and he said "bye bye Mama".
I was shocked. He LOVES nursing at night, and usually I have to peel him off of me. Getting him to bed literally took one minute.
Also, I always nurse him until he is asleep for his naps. For the past 26 months, I have been the only one to put him down for every single nap (hard to believe). Today he wanted Daddy to rock him instead , and then decided he just wanted to go right into his crib. He babbled for a while and then fell asleep.
I cannot even believe this, I am so shocked. I never imagined he would ever do this! It is bittersweet. I am relieved that I don't have to be the only one to put him to bed, but I am sad that our special little time together is ending.
One day at a time...
He does still ask to nurse a few times a day, (even though he isn't get much), and he says "milkies is funny" and looks at it and laughs in between nursing. I feel like we are heading down the weaning road. I thought for sure I would be tandem nursing, but now I'm not so sure. I guess we'll see how it plays out.
