Its Over

At one day shy of 14 months I believe William is done nursing. I'm a little sad about it. He is our only baby right now and as Caskey continually reminds me after each new milestone; new shoes, new stitches and now this; its only 10 more months until he starts preschool.

The last 4 to 6 weeks has been sporadic nursing. I think the weekend in August when he spent several nights at my mother-in-laws house started the decline in our nursing relationship. My supply lessened. William started enjoying bottles and how fast he was able to drink them. I enjoyed the free time it gave me to do other chores.

But tonight when I offered him my breast he actually pushed me away and lunged for the bottle. I guess I'm not really surprised since he hasn't nursed in about 3 days. But since he is sick and tired I thought he would like to suckle and go to sleep. I guess not. My baby boy really is growing up. Its time for that first haircut.
