Crying over Spilled Milk
Okay, it's not really spilled, but all our reserves of my breast milk are just about depleted. In fact, Olivia will officially have her last bottle with any breast milk sometime this morning while I'm here at the office. I am so sad about this new milestone. I don't think I could have pumped any longer than I did with my work and travel schedule back in September and quitting did feel liberating. But today, I'm really pretty sad that this is it, and that we're turning a page in her life. It's so weird, I didn't think I'd have such an attachment, but I loved knowing that I was helping her grow and thrive and now I feel like that's over. So today I'll be a teary over the spilled milk. It was definitely consumed more than we ever spilled, it but you know what I mean.
