The end of a {boob} era

Just like that.

After 21 months Hazel up and decided to be done with nursing. Which I wasn't expecting. Clingy is an understatement with this girl so I thought we'd be well into the 2's before I had to kick her off the boob.

And just like that these puppies have fed their last baby (maybe 😂). Almost 7 years I've been feeding babies with a few months break here and there. I feel like my whole life for the past 7 years have been filled with full boobs, sore nipples and my beloved Medela pump. And to my most precious Honest balm. I will never be able to thank you enough!

And just like that it's over.

Am I sad? More than you know. Which is hilarious considering how many times I've complained about being the only one responsible for sustaining the life of three little girls. When I think back to all my newborn babies I think of the quiet times spent nursing, those sweet little sounds. And after Quinny, I think of how excited the older ones were to help with bottle feeding. Those are some sure ways to get the tears flowing, is thinking of those times.

I am so beyond grateful that I was able to nurse all three babies for as long as I did. I had no idea I would fall in love with nursing as much as I did. And I am so thankful I had three easy babies who loved it as much as I did. 

Hazel a little too much lol

So now I guess I'll go buy a real bra, with no nursing straps and try to hoist these puppies as far up as they'll go :) Good job, ladies. You've done well!
