An Open Letter to Myself About Weaning

The bonding is the most magical thing I have ever experienced. I stare into her eyes and she stares right back into mine. I play with her tiny hands and marvel at how anything could be that perfect. 

Even as she gets older, bigger, and heavier; nursing her is still my favorite thing. There is no tantrum or boo boo that can’t be solved with a little bit of Mommy's milk. The way it has bonded us and soothed us both, has been more powerful than I ever expected.
