Still improving

The breast issue is still improving. I know I should have weaned slowly from the breastfeeding, that was what I read in all the books and it is totally logical, but don't tell that to a woman who doesn't really want to stop breastfeeding, feels guilt and loss associated with it, and just wants to fill the freezer full of pumped breastmilk, lol. I kept trying to cut back on feedings but then I wanted just one more day's worth of milk in the freezer, so I kept putting it off and next thing I knew, the deadline I set for myself (last week in July) was here!!! So, internet research began and I did it fast. Going slowly over the course of a week or two when you don't want to stop feeding in the first place is pure agony.


I don't have much else to write for now. Things are going good. I am loving every minute with my baby girl and we are finally having fun again as a family. I'll leave you with a cute pic from camping this weekend. I took this picture to try to get a shot of her cute little elf ears:-)

Let me just tell you- Marius was sitting on my lap as I read this, drinking his bottle. Until I scrolled down to Teagan's picture, at which point his eyes went wide, he spit out the bottle, smiled, and started kicking his legs and making excited grunting sounds. lol

I'm so sorry the weaning has been so difficult, but so glad to hear it's going well. Teagan is soooo adorable, love her elf ears!

Teagan is so cute and you are so brave to take her camping so quickly! I'm glad the BF thing is sorting itself out for you and sad that you have to stop as I know how difficult it is for you to do that. Isn't is nice to get out as a family and enjoy being together?
