You're Gonna Hear Me Roooarrr

2.03.2016


You may recognize my outfit from yesterday's blog post and you can find all my outfit details there if you are curious, but I wanted to split these photos into two posts. I didn't want to photo dump on you all at once. Plus I wanted to share a couple things that are happening with Maddox.

First, how cute is M's outfit? I love little pullover sweaters on him. On Saturday I was helping my best friend register for her wedding at Target and I walked past this sweater and snagged it as quickly as I saw it. Definitely an impulse purchase, but it was love at first site. I mean look at it!

In other news, Maddox has completely weaned off of me. Cue the tears! I told Jon I wish I had known the last time he fed was going to be the last so I could just savor it that much more. I guess there are perks to being done with breastfeeding, but still a small part of me is emotional about it. I'm thankful to all you mamas who gave me advice and support on Instagram last weekend as to what to do about being engorged. Luckily I only had one.. maybe two days of feeling that way. He weaned slowly enough that I think my milk supply has diminished on it's own really well. It just took one really painful night of sleep since I'm typically a stomach sleeper.

And on top of it all he's started walking more and more and slowly letting go here and there to take a few steps and sit down. He goes maybe two or three steps on his own at a time and then plops down on his bottom. Why must he hit me with all of this at once!? I just want to scream SLOOOWW DOWN! And on top of it his first birthday is in less than two months! Can you tell I'm a bit emotional over here?

  3. They grow so fast (especially in that first couple years). I feel like my nephew was just born, but now he's a toddler with a personality and so many words! It doesn't help that I live so far away. Every time I come home for a visit, he has changed so much! I can't imagine watching my own little one grow so fast!

  4. I think that is every Momma's wistful thought.. that we wished we knew what the last time was at that moment so we could savor it. I feel the same. Love his little sweater, he looks so dashing!

  5. Awe, I can only imagine how you must be feeling with all these big milestones! BUT on the upside, just remember what a great job you're doing as his momma and getting him ready for all these new experiences in life - he couldn't do it without you!

  6. Thanks for sharing where you are with all of this. I'm not a momma so I don't have any encouragement to offer in that sense but I will say it truly has been a joy watching him grow as a little person and you as a mother. Good luck navigating all the emotions that come with these new stage milestones! xx

  8. Clara just fully weaned a few weeks ago and I didn't realize the last time was the last time until we kind of just didn't breastfeed anymore afterwards! It does make my heart a bit sad - but I still get bedtime snuggles with her bottle of milk <3 I hope you're enjoying the freedom that comes with not needing to breastfeed anymore! -- Lisa | Naptime Chai
