You don't realize how much you LOVE breastfeeding until you read a heart wrenching blog about how sad it is to stop.
Eli is 4 months old tomorrow and I couldn't even fathom no longer breast feeding in just 2 months. I love when he pets my chest like a dog and grasps my finger the way he did the day he was born. I love watching his eyes roll back and drift into dreamland. I love holding him close and rubbing his back. Most of all, I love that he needs me.

Ugh i'm having such a hard time letting him grow.

  1. motherhood is so strange, isn't it? like, you're really excited to see your baby grow and do new things and then the next second you're thinking, "stop growinggggg!" i breastfed henry until he was a year and it was amazing, i agree. although it was hard to stop, it was just time. you'll naturally wean yourself from it and it won't be as hard as you imagine.

    love your blog, i just saw your post on the boy named after a car. henry has that same baseball onesie and also a very bald head. so cute!
