    Default One Year Ago....

    I weaned my big boy. Our actual last nursing session was 7/10/09, but this is the week that it really stopped. It seems so long ago and it seems like yesterday all at the same time. In this year he has become a big brother (in name and spirit), started really speaking and communicating his own little unique ideas and thoughts, started school and potty learned. He is such a big boy now! He still pats the tops of my boobs and snuggles in when DS2 is nursing, but I can never tell if he actually remembers nursing or not. We had such a wonderful 2 years, and even if he doesn't remember it - I always will.

    Jeremija Charles - 5/30/07 - nursed 26 mo, and
    Aleksandar Hayes - 12/13/09 - nursing strong!

    so sweet -and call me crazy but I do believe children have those memories - they just dont have the language to fully articulate everything.

    Many toddlers who nurse past 2 1/2 will have memories of nursing. It is wonderful that you will always have such fond memories of all those moments of love.
