It's over

Over the past year I have sat down on the couch or on my bed or in a rocking chair and cuddled with my sweet baby while I nursed her. Usually several times a day... at most maybe 8 (when she was itty bitty), but over the last couple weeks we had worked to get down to just one time in the evenings.
Well tonight she didn't need me like she use to.
In fact, I wasn't even here to know if she needed me.
I went to a neighbors house to watch Twilight (great by the way!) and told Adam to try to put her down and if needed me to call.
Well I didn't get a call.
I came home and she was fast asleep. Without my aid. So sad.
When I weaned Grace at 13.5 months I was so done. Past done. But with Emma it makes me sad that I might never nurse another baby. Seriously though...where does the time go?

Awww...this makes me teary eyed for you. Time does go by so fast. It seems like yesterday you were about to deliver Grace when we said goodbye as we moved to WA state.

I am sad that I have never met your girls, but I am oh so thankful for the blogging world. Hugs to you.

Have a great week!

Oh, I'm a little sad with you. That is EXACTLY how it happened with Gray. I truly never thought he'd ween, but we did it so effortlessly. You don't have time to prepare! :)

I don't know if you'll ever nurse again, but time goes by too fast! :)

Sounds to me like it is time for an adult vacation! I say somewhere on a beach!

Oh my goodness!! I can't believe that she is done nursing! It has gone by so fast...I feel for you during this time...I know it must be so hard! I couldn't imagine not nursing Owen at night it would be so hard!
