Just Like That , It's Over

He's weaned from the breast, at 13 months.
I'm just of incredulous of this.
It started at 12 months when I cold turkey pump-weaned at work and he transitioned straight away to whole cows milk without blinking a single darn lash. It was so easy. Too easy.
And then, I had 5 weddings in July, keeping me away on Saturdays . . . leaving only Sunday and evenings to nurse.
Then, he started going to sleep awake, without my nursing him to sleep.
This all snowballed until, without full knowledge as I took the picture, this was the last time we nursed when he was inconsolable and feverish. I comforted him as best I knew how.
It's so sad to bring a close to this intimate aspect of our relationship. With Isaac, we prolonged it even after pump weaning until he was just shy of 18 months. It was gradual. It was time. With Ezra, it just seems so abrupt. Too soon.
