Everything Must Come To An End...
For the past ten months I have not been able to eat any kind of nuts. I love peanut butter! But for the sake of this beautiful little girl
I have refrained. Her pediatrician thinks she may be allergic to nuts based on her projectile vomiting after I would eat peanut butter.
this happened today. Why? Because both of our bodies have decided it's time to move on. And because of this:
Today was my last day of breastfeeding my baby. And yes, I am an emotional basket case. Ten months ago I sat in my living room crying because I didn't think I could do it and I thought about quitting. Now, ten months later, I sit in my living room crying because I don't want to stop. I'm not crying because of the 2 am feedings, or because I will miss wearing the nursing bras, or because I will miss Emma occasionally biting me. I cry because my baby no longer needs me. (I know, I know..she will always need me...blah blah blah..you know what I mean.) My baby is no longer a baby. She now waves and gives kisses and climbs the stairs and sleeps through the night and eats people food (again, you know what I mean) and she is just so stinking big. Next thing I know, she will be off to college and married. So sad. But isn't she cute?!
On a much happier note, I hope it's April forever!!!
