weaning


The process has started. This sweet baby girl will soon no longer need her mommy as a source of nutrition. It's been a mutual decision. She doesn't like to sit still to nurse and I'd gladly like my body back. But it's a bittersweet moment as I realize that a part of me will be longing for the time we got to share together.
Another benefit? The bottle allows mommy to do a little multi-tasking. This picture was taken just before I jumped in the shower as she laid on my bathroom floor contentedly giving HERSELF the bottle!

So jealous. I've either been pregnant or nursing or both for four years. You make weaning look so easy!
