Weaning my baby girl

Filed under: Uncategorized — by Sarah @ 3:42 am

It’s hard in many ways. I knew it would be, she’s actually doing pretty well with not nursing other than at night and naptime. But each time I nurse her I relish it because I hardly do it anymore. It’s crazy because I was beginning to resent nursing because thats all that she wanted to do, not I miss it…

I guess thats to be expected because change isn’t easy, even if you know it’s right. I love my baby girl she is a sweetheart it’s hard to believe she is 15 months already, where did the time go?

at about 14 months old


What I really want

Filed under: Uncategorized — by Sarah @ 2:35 am

Have you ever wondered if what you have been seeking or doing is what you really want? Well I have. Most of the time I find myself doing things that I am not so sure that I really want to do and I constantly change the way I am doing things and go back and forth between ideas. I think it must be that I am very easily influenced and I seem to adopt some new idea that someone else does because I might admire that person. My therapist told me yesterday that it reall good that I am constantly aspiring to be better buy being open to better ways of doing things and what others have to say. The only problem is I tend to take it a bit too far…
