Wonderful Wednesdays

It’s Wednesday, so you know what that means! Wonderful Wednesdays, where we look at the good stuff to get over the hump of the week. So let’s get to it!

Last night I was putting the kid to bed, which means after jammies and kisses night-night for daddy, Jackson and I go to his room to nurse. I’m still nursing J in the morning and at night, and while I keep debating when we’ll wean those two nursing sessions, for now he doesn’t seem ready to give them up and I’m ok with that.

However, nursing him at night has become more challenging by the simple fact that the kid NEVER wants to stop moving. Some days, I feel like he’s trying to perform a Cirque du Soleil show in my lap while still latched. The acrobatics involved can be frustrating for me, and recently I’ve found myself getting snappy, and trying to rush him through it to bed.

But last night, maybe because I was still on a high from my project at work finishing up, I didn’t get frustrated. I didn’t rush Jackson. Instead, when he got squirrelly, I let him stop and chatter at me, and play with my brush (I don’t know why, but my brush has become one of his favorite things the last few days. Kids are weird). I let him play with the zipper on my hoodie. I let him nurse when he wanted,squirm when he wanted, and chatter when he wanted.

At one point, he even stopped and just sat in the crook of my arm. Just the two of us, sitting there, rocking.

I don’t know how many more nights we’ll nurse–probably more than 10 and less than 300, but who knows–but last night I took the time to enjoy the time with just my baby and me. Some of it was nursing. Some of it was playing. Some of it was just…being together.

And that was pretty wonderful.

So how about you? What’s wonderful in your world? Let me know in the comments, or blog about it and I’ll link you up below.

Awwww. I remember a moment like that, too. And wrack my brain as I might, I still can’t remember the last time my son nursed. It was a couple of months ago but I didn’t know it was going to be the last time.

Um, wonderful wonderful let’s see. This morning, when my older son got up, his little brother who is usually not so affectionate with him, went over and gave him a big smack on the cheek and said, “I love you – you are my very best brother.” It was soul-meltingly adorable.

Awwww, that is too adorable! It *almost* makes me think of having another one sooner rather than later. Almost.

Well, it’s Thursday now, but I’d have to say passing the stinking 3 hour glucose tolerance test!
