About two weeks ago, I woke up and officially told my husband, “I don’t want to nurse Gus anymore”. We had cut back to nursing only once a day, and while I liked providing him that nourishment and comfort something had changed, and I finally felt ready to let go.

It seems like as soon as people knew that I was pregnant with my first child the questions started rolling in about when we were going to have our second or third and how many children were we planning to have anyway? It was easy enough to play this off for a while, "H...
