It is finished…
Nursing Clare, that is. I’m sad. Sad because I don’t know if she’s my last. Sad because now her nutrients come from HEB and Central Market. It’s just hard to think about closing that door, you know. I’m a crazy person. Do I need counseling? Wouldn’t most women be doing jumping jacks because they got their body back? I love nursing more than I can explain and I’m thankful for the 13 months – even though they went by way too quickly.
Clare Bear you’re growing up too fast. Stop it!
she’s soooo freakin cute it’s painful!! the future baby farnum’s have their work cut out! (the way way future that is ) 🙂
Clare is really cute! I was right there with you about a month ago. I even cut Kayla off for a week, had regrets and tried to restart nursing. But at that point milk was pretty much gone, and she had other things to do. So we are done. I feel like some of “my time” with her has been lost… I guess it’s just been realotted…
I linked to your site from Alexis’ blog, and this post makes me sad too! My daughter’s only 3-1/2 months old (and she’s my first), but thinking about the last time I’ll ever breastfeed her… they really do just grow too fast.
You have a beautiful family – thanks for sharing (and for giving Alexis your pump!)
Amanda, no rush. What’s mine is yours.
Shelley, your comment cracked me up. I had regrets and tried again today…Clare was like, “Um, no thank you Mom!!”
Amber, oh what I would give to go back one day with my first. It’s sweet time, I tell ya. Nice to meet you via the blog and glad to know Alexis has a growing fan club 🙂
I was pumping as I was reading your blog! Oh, goodness, I fear the last time I breastfeed Lauryn. With Lucas I couldn’t wait to be done, but with Lauryn it is different. Like you, I’m not sure if she will be my last, so it will be a bittersweet moment.
I stopped with Christian right around 13 months, too, and it was sad. Just yesterday I was mentioning that that was just about 7 weeks ago and it feels like a lifetime already. I LOVED nursing him and found it such a precious time. I AGREE! Maybe we’ll both get to do it again soon :).
