Pumping with a very mobile and curious baby is already getting to be so difficult that I'm pumping only once in the morning and once before I go to bed. When the dentist told me no breastfeeding for 10 days, I thought, "Well, maybe this is when I stop pumping." At the dentist's office it sounded like a good plan but when I came home and realized that I was going to be pumping for the last time and that Makenzie wouldn't be getting breast milk anymore, I was sad. As much as I hate pumping lately, it's the last thing that really makes Makenzie need me. I can't believe that we've made it this far. My goal was/is to make it to her 1 year birthday but if we're being honest when I started this whole thing, I wasn't sure I'd make it a month and now here we are almost 9 months later. I thank the Lord that I have been able to provide for Kenzie in this way. As much as I hate pumping, we'll keep going, just because I can't give it up yet.
