I can’t hold it together enough to sing to him. 😭 Last nap nursing…
Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

Oh hon, the anticipation of it is worse than the actual end, I swear. I’m sort of thankful I didn’t know it would be the last time with Stella b/c we stopped so abruptly b/c I was so sick. I swear it gets easier. *HUGS* I totally understand mourning the end of this particular relationship with him though. Those lasts are hard, especially with your last baby. 😦 Thinking of you today.

Hugs! I didn’t have the same emotional reaction when molly weaned, since it was so gradual (plus I was pregnant and SO done) but I think about Oliver being my last nursing baby and it makes me sad.
Enjoy your weekend away!

Awww, you are making me teary! Like Josey said, it will be okay. D asked to nurse randomly yesterday, but I was able to quickly and easily deter him to a sippy of milk instead. I really hope it’s an easy transition for you both.

Oh no! I think I will probably feel the same this time around, knowing it is my last baby. Thinking of you!!

I hope you guys find another way to bond that develops into something just as meaningful. Hugs.

:*( I can only imagine how hard this was. Just thinking about the end with Ezzie, knowing she is the last, makes me sad… and I still have a while to go (hopefully!!). But what an amazing journey the two of you have shared. Hugs.
