I was a mess. Apparently separation anxiety doesn't necessarily refer to just a baby's feelings...
Look at this Bun - can you blame me??

Loving the Jolly Jumper AND the hanging toys or trying to escape the Jumper we're still not sure. Being a great sport with her Dad. We have a whole series of pictures along this theme - breastpads, toys, books to help her with her posture - you can never start learning to be a lady too soon you know!
I know the knitting content has been really absent these passed few months but to replace actual production which is much slower we just go and hang with the covens. Fenner has been blessed by the Knitters. In some cases I believe she is practising her superpower - Making women Ovulate (that capital O is not a typo). Seriously, man she was tiny - I can't even believe it.She has really made a home for herself at the Purple Purl as well. They take great care of both of us there and often too. Good coffee, good wool, good people those knitters. My all encompassing family. How they rock my world.

We tried the bottle for the first time today with the expectation that she would be full of RAGE, BETRAYAL and DISGUST and while she wasn't super enthusiastic, she actually drank and Jason fed her for the first time. It was exciting and if I wasn't crying like a school girl it would have been more celebratory.
I was immediately overcome with such incredibly mixed emotions. I am greedy for our breastfeeding time. I love everything about it. The nappy dreamy sensation, the bonding, our chatting, the portablility of it, how happy we both are. That this is the one thing no one else can do to care for my daughter - it was all. mine.
Sigh. Sharing is hard.
So it was with mixed emotions that we embarked on the road of independance.
