Weaning Evelyn

Evelyn is now weaned.  She probably stopped nursing completely about 4 weeks ago.  It has been a long, slow taper, and she was clearly losing interest.  If it had been up to me, she would have nursed for a lot longer, but that's not the way it worked out.  She may be my last baby, so it is sad to think that I may not nurse again.  It's such an intensely intimate and magical thing, and I definitely miss it.  But it also comes with a new freedom that is welcome.  I kind of feel like I have been nursing or pregnant for about 4 years now, so it's nice to have a little more independence.  Maybe Jason and I will have to get away for a weekend sometime soon - finally!
