My breastfeeding with Rose is at a final and absolute end and despite being sooooo happy to get my boobs back I'm actually a little bit heartbroken. It is a really weird feeling to have your little person not need you anymore in that way, I used to be able to comfort her (and calm her down when she is being manic!) with just a simple pat of my chest and the question 'Ba ba?' but nope. As of about 2 months ago she decided she had had enough and cut it down to once every few days. It has now been about 3 weeks (i think?) and my breasts are all mine. So before this happened Sheryl from Oobaloos photography captured these utterly gorgeous photos that I could never have taken myself. She captured those moments that I didn't even realise were happening- those looks from Rose that I will never see again because, dammit, she is too grown up for 'ba ba' now and isn't a baby anymore (I almost teared up then!).
I can't ever get those moments back but I can reminisce and remember them with these photos and after all... isn't that why we take them?
