My primary resolution for early 2008 was pretty simple. It involved the gentle, painless weaning of this guy:
And here we are, right on the first day of the shiny, new year, and that boy is weaned, WEANED, I tell ya. It was a Christmas Miracle (if miracle = husband home on vacation = second party willing to get up in the night and kindly suggest that certain parties don't need to nurse at 2:00 AM anymore), really and truly.
So, here's my next resolution: Don't be pregnant or lactating in 2008. Just for fun, since I've been pregnant or lactating since November of 2003. Not that I'm complaining.
And, please, if you think that I am a cruel, bad woman for weaning that poor baby (who is 14 months old, OK?) under no circumstances should you send an e-mail telling me so. Besides, look at him:
He's thrilled. Breastfeeding was the only thing standing between him and getting his own place downtown. Good luck, little buddy!
