A Big Girl

A big girl, and a rock-eater

Ashlyn is no longer a baby. Though she is not yet one, she nursed for the last time Sunday night. She was pretty mad about it last night, but gave up after crying for a few minutes. She turned on her aquarium and went to sleep for the whole night! She did get up a little too early for my taste, (at least 6, please,) though she did play with her aquarium for a little while before I had to get her. I've been a little bit sad about giving that up, just because it means my baby is growing up. But, hey, after 9 months of pregnancy & 11 1/2 months of nursing, my body is once again my own!

Congrats! That's got to be hard but a relief at the same time.

I know how hard it is to give that(nursing) up, but you're right, in a matter of days/weeks you'll be back to good ole you! And, she'll sleep better, too!
Love looking at your blog...I envy the time you spend working on it!
And, LOVE Ashlyn's big smile as always!

Ok, right now, my breasts feel like rocks. I'm not enjoying that part.

Ok, if that map does not put a dot on Tasmania I am going to start protesting!

Sorry about the boob pain. I SO never want to breast feed.

Angie said...

Brad, I don't know what's up with the map. Maybe they've made a dot for you somewhere else. Hmmm, not sure.

Jamie, It's not that bad. I really think it is so much easier.

"A big girl and rock-eater:" maybe Ashlyn will be an Alaskan prospector - A taste for gold!
