My firstborn just had his 7th birthday several days ago, and as if that in and of itself wasn't emotional enough...it reminded me that it has now been 7 years straight that I have been nursing a babe. My youngest will be 3 in Feb...and it def. looks like she is tapering off. I think there is a good chance she will self wean by her birthday. Being that she is my last baby, I know that once she weans, I will never nurse again. The sentiment carries so many different emotions, sadness, joyfulness, a little relief (sometimes)...but most of all I just am so thankful for the ability to nurture myself and my babies in this most beautiful way...and Thank you to Mothering and this Community for the support along the way.
