I am a little sad. It isn’t a heart rending grief but it’s a pretty big deal to me because Avery is officially done nursing.
After about a week of ten to twenty second nurses once a day, he’s hasn’t nursed in 48 hours and didn’t even ask for it during that time.
So this means I have five months left of pregnancy without nursing. I suppose I’m interested to see how it’ll be. I’ve been nursing for fifteen and a half months and two years since I first got pregnant. Isn’t that strange? I suppose each child takes two years to get a good start in life. At least…..I feel like it was cut short a little bit with Avery because of pregnancy but fifteen and a half months is good enough to me. Well, it has to be, I’m obviously completely out of milk.
Ah well, in twenty and a half short weeks I’ll have another cute little baby to nurse and snuggle. Avery is growing up so fast and I love every stage. I feel like each stage is the best yet. That’s life.
I used my rice cooker tonight to make rice and and steam some veggies.
It was perfectly cooked rice of course. I am impressed. I have to say, having perfectly cooked rice every time isn’t really going to be a problem for me.
I also sliced up some brats for Shane’s sake. Oh, and added butter, lots of herbs and salt.
Totally yummy. I think tomorrow I’ll make oats in there. I like just leaving stuff and coming back and it being done. It rocks. Someday I’m going to need to find a bread maker at a thrift store and have two appliances that do that.
So that was my day. It seemed pretty monumental. I think the lack of nursing this week has made my nesting instincts really go crazy. The kids room is all re-arranged after a frenzy in there today. I have a couple more things to do like get a good nursing chair, get rid of a broken dresser and start bed training Avery but otherwise I like the start I’m getting.
Anyway, that’s the ramble for today. I hope you all have a fabulously lovely Friday!
Question: To all you mamas, how long did you nurse your baby/ies? And for the non mamas, how do you feel about nursing your future children?
