Mommy and Henry
Today was the end of an era. At the beginning of April, I began to eliminate daytime nursing sessions with Henry. At first, it was awful -- he would pull at my shirt, and lay himself in my lap -- but it eventually got easier. We snuggled A LOT during the day, and continued nursing in the evenings before bed. But tonight, instead of nursing, I snuggled Henry close and sang him a lullaby. I laid him down in his crib, and he went to sleep on his own without incident. This baby is a baby no longer. And that fact is kind of bittersweet.
