Goodbye Breastfeeding

So, I've decided STARTING TONIGHT, that I will no longer nurse Wyatt. I have several reasons why I'm stopping. For starters, we're only down to nursing at night, while he's asleep. He won't let me nurse him to sleep anymore, just only when he wakes up from sleep. And when I have my "let down", he usually pushes me away. So that makes me think that he's absolutely not doing it for the milk anymore. Which makes sense because he's eating and drinking all day. Another reason I want to stop is because Wyatt only wants to nurse when he's asleep. It's the sucking soothing thing that he wants. He never really took to pacifiers, so my boob has been his soothie. Which sucks. Because I'm literally getting no sleep, and it's starting to piss me off. Yeah, I said it. It's pissing me off and I'm over it. I'm absolutely done with nursing. It was sweet and wonder and amazing while it lasted, but now it's just a huge annoyance and a drag and I'm ready to be done. So tonight, I will not nurse Wyatt at all. I'm going to seize this opportunity while I have it. The only real dilemma I'll have is getting him back to sleep in the middle of the night without nursing. But I think I can do it. Last night I got so irritated with him because I was sleeping like crap and he was kicking me and complaining and just wanting the boob in his mouth. I kept trying to soothe him back to sleep with just rubbing and patting his head (which works for naps) but it wasn't working this time. I got kinda mad (sorry, I suck) and I said firmly, "Wyatt, STOP IT." And it was weird, it was like it snapped him out of it and he went to sleep. So, it's time to stop.

Okay, random picture time.

One of my favorite things to eat ever. Rustic bread, feta, tomato, and red onion.

Why was it 90 DEGREES TODAY!? I look disgusting, even after editing this photo.

Sorry Wyatt, but I refuse to turn the AC on in October. Spread eagle.
