October 11th

Tuesday, October 11th was a big day in our house.  One filled with joy, excitement, a ‘first’, and a touch of sadness. 

The joy arrived as an 8lb 2oz beautiful baby boy born to my brother and sister-in-law.  He’s gorgeous!

The excitement (as you saw in a previous post) stemmed from the loss of my daughter’s first tooth!

The tooth fairy’s visit to our home was a ‘first’.  He left a crisp, new one dollar bill (wow…times have changed since I lost my last tooth!)

And the sadness came when I packed up the pump for the VERY LAST TIME!  While this event was bitter sweet, because I was really DONE pumping, it still made me very, very sad.  Saying goodbye to nursing my little guy hurt my heart.

I am totally empathetic to your sadness. It's amazing how difficult it is, letting go.
