The End of a Chapter..

My little monkey has officially weaned herself. :( It was not a quick decision but one that we both have been slowly working on making. Being a nursing mommy is really hard when you are working and dislike pumping. About a month or so ago, I decided that I was not going to pump at the office anymore. When I would get home, Anabelle would not even ask for milk. I was still nursing her to sleep but, she recently gave up that too.

I miss the quiet times that we had together and just watching each other, i miss our late night cuddles where the only thing that I can hear is the sigh that she makes during every gulp, i miss her calmly sitting on my lap because that never happens with my active girl.

I am happy that she is growing and becoming more independent but, I can not help but feel sad. Not that she doesn't need me but that my baby is getting big and growing up. Soon, she will not want her mama anymore and she will be a big girl. I cherish every second that I have with her and just want her to slow down a bit so I don't feel like I miss so much!

Now, a few weeks ago this is my little kid.

In less than 2 weeks Anabelle will have her first whole day at daycare/preschool. I can not wait for all the new things that she learns and the new experiences she will have.

Good-bye baby, hello little person!
