End of an Era...
that is a Boppy, if you don't know...and we will soon be packing ours away to await some other child because my sweet baby Avery has decided she is DONE NURSING. yesterday she nursed in the morning and then refused to the rest of the day, and today...she just refused. i think she is getting more teeth and she keep trying to bite me but she won't nurse. so i think we are done.
i knew it was coming. you start this path knowing that it will end sometime after thier first birthday. and i always said, when she wants to stop (after the first birthday) we will. because, all you moms who breastfeed will know, if a kid doesn't want to...there's no forcing the issue. we had a good run, she is almost exactly the same age as ethan was when he stopped nursing, oddly enough. 13.5 months.
she seems to be transitioning well and i don't have any pain, so i think we'll all be fine. i will miss the closeness we had nursing and frankly, the time i had to read my books;) or take a catnap while ethan was occupied...but we'll have fun being all together now. i wonder if ethan will even notice that we don't do it anymore? he hasn't said anything today about it. we'll see:)
