Can I just say that I am really going to miss Madelyn nursing (not that I'm weaning her anytime soon, mind you). I've just been thinking about this a lot as she gets older and eats more solids. Today, while at the Zoo Boo, Madelyn sat along side us munching on chicken nuggets and french fries (yes, I know, cream of the crop!). The more solids she eats, the less frequently she nurses. However, being the breastfeeding advocate I am, I know that my milk is her perfect nutrition for her first year of life, and nothing else is necessary. That's why I don't flip out when we're running errands and I don't have time to mash up a banana, but just "whip it out" for her instead (well, how else do you want me to phrase it...haha). I stopped nursing William when he was 14 months old- one month into my pregnancy with Madelyn. I nearly stopped in my tracks when I realized that Madelyn will be that old in 4 months. How did she get to be that old? How did time just fly by that quickly? I love that Madelyn loves being a baby, that she doesn't try to do things too quickly (like Mr. William who walked at 9 months). She is perfectly content just being my shadow and watching every move that her big brother makes. Oh how I love her the bond we have.
