Beginning of the End

Oh no.

Oh no, oh no, oh no.

Do you know what happened this weekend? This baby hung out with Daddy and went 6 hours without nursing.

Do you know what happened today? This baby hung out with Mommy and went 9 hours without nursing.

Could this possibly be the beginning of some self-weaning? Mommy is not ready for this.

Don't get me wrong, it was rough back when Liam was nursing every 2-3 hours when he first came home with us. Some days Mommy just wanted to cry, and some days she actually did. Six straight hours of comfort nursing... in the middle of the night... because no one told us there was such a thing as comfort nursing? That was quite possibly the low-point of our time together.

But. BUT. Since then it has been nice. It has been a nice little quiet time to bond and to smile at each other. To listen to each other breathe. To smooth down that funny cowlick that just won't stay down.

Besides, do you know what happens when nursing ends? Well, if you don't know, I'm not going to tell you. But Mommy is not looking forward to it.
