I almost had her weaned...

So this girl loves her milk... and she knows how to get it. (demanding yapping and banging my chest) Her big sister was just done at a year- didn't even want to nurse... Kate has always showed a big preference for my milk, which worked out just fine; but we are leaving her for a week in May and I am hoping she can be totally ready by the time we go!

I had it down to just having enough for to nurse a teeny-tiny bit in the middle of the night, and but then it happened...
 1) she got pink eye from Abby (It should be called "green eye" for kate- I swear I could fill a spoon with all the boogers from her eyes everyday)...
2)which spread to an slight ear infection...
3) which made it easier for everything to get irritated, hence the big blister on her toungue...
4) and today I just discovered a tooth poking through!

My arms are sore from carrying her so much and she just wont let nursing go... I'm sure this will pass and we'll be weaned before we know it. ***update 2015... As we approach the time for Lila to wean, I look back at this time with my nursing baby and I have to wonder why I was so rushed to wean her- I really enjoy nursing now (and for the most part, always have!). I have great memories of nursing my little baby Kate.

It's like the forces are against me to enjoy long lashes I've been so excited to get when I can finally use Lilash... Or get anything done, actually. Hate to admit it, but I have been pretty unmotivated since we pretty much live alone right now- Josh has been working til midnight most nights. This video (power of intention) totally helped me get out of a deep rut I was in a couple nights ago... But I am really excited for her to just feel better! (And then wean. Which means we get to go on a vacation:) )

Here's a video of the cute girl cruising down the stairs at daddy's work, before she got sick. I hope these happy Kate days return soon.
