"everybody needs somebody to hold them down...when your feet are leaving the ground" -patrick watson

it has been a jumbled few days of crazy early mornings and i've been a busy lady... but it's been great. and happy. and all is well. thanks for your sweet comments, my bloggy friends. for the sweet treats in the mail. for just plain old thinking of me. i wish i could collect you all up into one place and share a real chat and a real smile or two. i feel so blessed to have this connection to you all. through miles and miles. through a gazillion computer wires. you are here... and i am thankful.

lucas and i have a new relationship now that he's no longer my little nursling. toughest few days of this very "attached parenting" life of mine. far more emotional than i had ever imagined. i found so many neat blogs and articles about gentle weaning and i feel so thankful that i was able to nurse luc for so long. i've tucked that special "minute" of his boy life away some place safe... to pull out when i need it. i think we've figured eachother out... again. i've re-taught myself how to soothe his worries/owies. how to put him down for bed. how to be his mama with-out the secret weapon. and he still loves and needs me! who would have thought?! he cuddles more, talks more, sleeps more. awh. all is well.
goodnight loves, lin


  1. I am glad it is working out for you. Weaning, when it is right, seems to go well, despite fears. I am getting to the end with our youngest and feel all these emotions since she's the last. UGH.
    He is so very sweet.

  2. Did I tell you about how Noah weaned himself? He was so ready. He was so fine. And I, I was a mess! I was so sad and tried to keep nursing...but like I said he was ready and moved on without me. It's amazing how these little guys just keep scooting up - nursling, toddler, little boy. Watch out here they come!

  3. I can't believe how big he is. He's so handsome. I love his hair, its so long. So cute. Im happy to hear that things are going good for you in Washington. That's awesome that you were able to nurse so long...Wish you were here to go to Gardner Village, they have all their halloween decor. its so cute. You have to give me your address. Talk to ya soon!

  4. I knew you were fine Lin, just fine. You have too much love/power/beauty in you to let sadness stay for too long.

  5. Lindsay I love that you are happy and found your spot now :) Congrats on the weaning situation but sorry that your heart hurts too!
    I need your new address so that I really can send you some of the baby stuff you were asking about :)
    Talk soon!

  6. OH that face! I'm so happy to hear that it's all gone smoothly...what a relief, huh?! I just love when the pieces all fit together like a puzzle.

  7. That is a great picture of Lucas. It's tender reading how you've weaned him. Nursing is such a unique and special thing, isn't it? I'm glad you're dealing well with this new "way of life."
