Feelin a little weepy tonight…

Weaning the baby.  So sad.  Listening to “Leather and Lace” by Stevie Nicks which played when he was born in the delivery room.

It was a big surprise to me how much I enjoyed breastfeeding all my kids.  I was on the fence abt it with the twins and thought if it didn’t work, I’d be fine with bottle feeding them.  But fortunately, it went well and I nursed them easily for 19 months.  Kingston was harder to nurse b/c he’s slightly tongue-tied which made for a painful experience for me for a long time (even at time now it still is).  I planned to nurse him till he was 2.  But my body is holding onto the extra baby weight (despite my absolute best efforts to diet and exercise) and I think weaning is needed at this point.  I feel guilty, selfish, as if I’ll regret not doing it longer.  However, I also know he’s growing up and not as much of a baby anymore 😦

Oh Kingston, how I adore you.
