It is bittersweet. I am happy to have my body back. I no longer have to worry about being able to nurse out of what I am wearing. While it had been about 5 months since we last nursed in public and about 3 since she had nursed at anytime beside bedtime, in my mind I have always had boobs as a ready and willing tool for curing ouchies or helping her go to sleep. We snuggle and we are both happy with it. I nudged her to wean and then she decided it was time.
Ravebaby weaning just in time for me to start my doctorate. I thought she would regress. I figured she want to nurse as soon as she saw and then stay on the boob all the time. I think she just realized that there was lot of life away from the boobs and besides, mom's boobs don't make chocolate milk.
So anyways there you have it. I am officially no longer a breastfeeding mom. It is incredible to me that this one decision to breastfeed has changed me so much. I am wheatless because I breastfed a wheatless baby. As I sit here eating my Gluten-Free Glutino Toaster Pastery, I have to smile. I don't miss wheat. When DH got his "death sentence" of a wheat allergy 10 years ago, I was in shock and had no clue what to do. When we saw the signs in DD at 3 weeks, I went cold turkey. Now, eating wheat makes me sick. I can tell when I've had wheat. I just don't miss it anymore.
My breastfeeding journey maybe over but the wheatlessness will continue. My blogging will be more sporadic too. I started my doctorate classes on June 1st and I am swamped with work. I'll be around and still glued to my computer but I might not have much blogging time.
