I started weaning this weekend. I'm leaving for Europe in two weeks, and besides, it's just time for this kiddo. He's not as interested and I end up feeding and pumping each time since he seems to have better things to do. As he is on solids and bottles, he's made the transition well.

But nobody told me it would suck this much. It sucks emotionally, but it sucks physically even more. I can't lift my arms :(

Anyone have any pain remedies? I'm only in 36 hours so I guess I have a few days left?

Look What I Can Do!

This happened overnight. He has had a tendency to put his hand on his evening bottle, but the other day when we were out to dinner he started manipulating it, and when I picked him up from the sitter after work the next day - he had it all figured out. Perfect timing since I'm going to stop nursing within the next 10 days.

These two are inseparable. Seriously. Bunni HAS to be near him at all times. He just laughs and laughs whenever she 'rearranges' his hair and holds his hands out for her to rub against. She totally takes his abuse also, namely fur and whisker pulling. And she keeps the motor going the whole time too!

The Good News: The weather is back into the 50's during the day. I have been out working with my horses. I don't have to wear my honkin' winter boots. Yeah for warm weather!

The Bad News: The sheet of ice under the water spigot outside is still there. It's slippery. I didn't want to change boots with rubber soles to haul water.

My Shoulder:

The Good News: It's not broken, dislocated or fractured like the Dr. thought.

The Bad News: The rotator cuff is bruised, the tendons are pulled and so is the bicep. I have to wear it in a sling for the week. I can't lift it above my rib cage. Boo.

The Cool News: I got a CD of my X-Rays. Technology is great.

Sorry - there quite literally has been not much of anything going on here. I do have some stuff I could blog about, but I need to take some pictures and whatnot so it isn't worth it right now.

I've also been caught up with parent teacher conferences, revamping our household (that I will one day blog about in the far future), and dealing with the winter weather that finally arrived - and left again. We had -56 wind chill the other night. You all know how running water doesn't freeze? Whatever. Ours did. And it was definitely running - not dripping. So along with that comes hauling water for livestock. Fun.

Wyatt continues to grow! I promise to be more exciting in the weeks to come!
