Nursing No More

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.
