21 Months... and Weaning...
However, while waiting for the girls to wake up, I began adding up the number of months spent pregnant and/or nursing for the past five and a half years. Actually I won't even count the first year of our marriage, since I wasn't pregnant or nursing. Let's say four and a half years since that would take us back to the beginning of my first pregnancy.
And honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way. I wouldn't mind if the years keep unfolding in the pattern we've established.
I am thankful I was able to struggle through the first incredibly painful months of learning how to nurse (it took us a while to get the hang of it!) and I'm also thankful that things got easier as time went by.
Now hopefully this goes as smoothly this time around as it did last time! I think (at least in my case) pregnancy has made weaning easier, as pregnancy often limits supply anyways, and can kind of begin the process whether we want it to or not. Now we'll see if Mae sees it that way!
