Has been life changing for me, in a good way.
Long story short, I Chad took a week off work and we weened Maggie from nursing.
That part is bitter-sweet, I mean, nursing is amazing and so special, but I can honestly say my post-partum depression is gone now. I have not felt this good, for like...18 months? Just like that, just like my other babies.
This round with Mags has been damn hard. Exhausting.
The way I describe it: it was like a dark cloud was chasing me, I could out run it for a day, maybe even a week, but if I got tired, or worn out it, it had better enurance than me and catch me. And I would be left overwhelmed, down, anxious an just the opposite person I want raising my girls and being a wife to my husband.
So after a tearful discussion (on my end) Chad and I decided to ween Maggers, I told him that I just couldn't do it alone, and so he took vacation and we did it.
Chad is amazing. He basically 100% Maggies main man the whole week, rocking her, feeding her, holding her, comforting her. And Maggie, she did amazing. She figured out how to 1)take a bottle/sippy (she NEVER has before) and 2) eat LOTS of solids. I am so proud of her.
I wish I was a poet so I could adequately describe how good I feel.
More cool things happened this week too, but I'll blog more about that later.
Happy Sunday night to you!
