The End of Breastfeeding [Weaning after Two Years of Nursing – a bittersweet milestone]

The end of breastfeeding is very much like the beginning of breastfeeding- a beautiful irony. My breasts are leaky, I have a bit of engorgement, and as the days pass, I wait for my supply (or end of supply) to regulate itself. A little bit of Mother Nature’s poetry. It’s been three weeks since my…

Going back to work after my Oliver turned one has always been the “plan”. And though I knew I would go back to work eventually, like we had planned, I am still fighting that lump in my throat, because I’m sad.

Bubbles and Baby Bums

A lot of our summer days so far, have been spent simply in our backyard. The  kids splash and play in their little pool, we sit in the shade of our tree. I enjoy my pergola, we have snacks. Penelope points out the airplanes that fly by, Oliver tries to eat grass, and Una supervises.…
