The Big W

We have Weaned!!!

We are officially and completely off the boob. We've been down to 10 seconds total of nursing for the past 6 months or so at least. I have been following the Don't offer and (mostly) don't refuse strategy. And then last week, he just stopped asking. Indeed, since last Sunday, he nursed one more time. The rest of the nights, we just cuddle and I tell him stories (of Pirate Conor). Guess what Conor is going to be for Halloween?

Wait! I feel a pun coming on:


Ha! All Weaned!

It will certainly be easy to remember about the time he stopped nursing.

I'll be honest with you: I am not having the weepy "oh my boy has grown up" reaction. 3 years and 3 months on the boob and I'm happily willing to let him go. I did try to buy a smaller bra recently. It was a no go. They may be hanging down to my belly now, but they appear to be permanently bigger than they were before.

Imagine if I had twins.....

Awww - so sweet. Congratulations! I nursed my son until he was 2.5 and my daughter until she was 2. I miss it so. Such a warm, tender thing.
