Weaning

We have begun the bittersweet process of weaning Anya completely.   Never in a million years did I think it would be so emotionally trying for me to stop nursing her, but it was time and she is ready.  She still asks for milk pretty much as soon as she wakes up, but she can be persuaded to go back to sleep if it’s early enough, and she’s perfectly content with cow’s milk in a cup instead of breastmilk.  I nursed her last night before bedtime (something I haven’t done in quite some time) as a good-bye of sorts to this particular bond we’ve shared.  Ugh.  It’s just another reminder that my little baby girl is growing up.  How has it gone so fast already?
