Everyone keeps asking me, “Are you still nursing her?” Um…. “Yes.” I always cringe, a bit embarrassed, but yes I’m still nursing her. Vivienne is two and a half, huge for her age and every bit still needy for me. Our nursing journey has developed from need, to want, to comfort. Nursing a toddler looks something like this: play, fall down, nurse, comfort.
Am I over it? YES, emphatically YES! I am over the pinching, pulling, hanging, undressing, nagging, whining, etc. I am done! Yet every morning, I give in. At naptime, I give in. Yet, she’s so cute, I can’t help it. So all you moms out there, still nursing toddlers, it’s okay! I stand with you in solidarity.
In honor of almost weaning, my husband photographed us. I put on the dress my godmother wore to my christening, and Vivi wore one of my christening outfits. A vintage Lord and Taylor, white sear-sucker tunic with a matching coat. We gloriously jumped on my bed, then snuggled for some special time together. I know she is my last child, and I wanted to mark this special moment in time.
