    I can’t believe she’s going to be three! I feel like I was just reading your blog from the beginning a month ago. Oh wait, I was ha! Love your blog, so much insight and good info. Can’t help but cross my fingers for lexi’s younger sibling in the near future. ;)

    Looks like it was a fun party! Can’t wait to see more. Is that your Mom in one of the pictures?

    The child to Lexi’s left side (in the cake picture) is stunning…such beautiful eyes!

    I want a nursing update! My son weaned naturally at 3.5 :-)

        I definitely felt like the end was in sight at 3. At 2? No. Lol

        He started spending the night with my mom right around 3. At this point, he was nursing at nap and night, plus once or twice during the day. It was his idea to sleep at my mom’s, not mine!

        I wanted to encourage the thought of weaning without pushing him, so we talked about how he won’t always nurse forever. I also showed him pictures of him nursing as a baby and we talked about why babies nurse (nutrition and comfort) and why he still nursed (mostly comfort to go to sleep).

        He began asking to spend the whole weekend with my parents and then he went on a 5-day trip with them when he was 3.5. I happened to get a cold and my supply was very low at this point. I took a decongestant right before bed when he it home and told him that I thought my milk was gone. He tried to nurse and agreed that there was no milk and that he was ready to stop nursing.

        I’m glad he weaned because I got pregnant when he was on that 5 day trip!! I didn’t know it until early December when I took a test. It was all perfect timing for us! I never wanted to nurse while pregnant, but we had just started trying and I wasn’t really expecting it to happen so fast! Because he remembers nursing and how important it was to him, he has been a fantastic big brother.

        Now I’m nursing my 6 month old baby girl and plan to do the same type of weaning. I say natural weaning because it wasn’t totally his decision. I encouraged him, but it was all very mutual and it felt right. I nursed until I was 4. My mom said that she did the same gentle encouragement.

          WOW! great story!!! We are headed that way. She still nurses a lot in the morning, but other than that only when she gets hurt or is tired.

    Would you mind sharing where her dress is from? I am in love with it and we have a father daughter ball coming up.
