Weaning...Allegedly

So I've come to the conclusion that I'm never going to be able to wean Arya.  Like ever.  The girl is a nursing fiend.  I get home from work and she's practically tearing at my clothes.  She doesn't take a pacifier, never has, and I think she's mostly using me for comfort since she eats three meals a day plus snacks.  I think that search for comfort is aiding and abetting her night waking habit.

But I love nursing...most of the time.  I love her milky smiles and how she plays with her feet when she eats.  And how she giggles when I stick my tongue out at her.  But I'd really love it if we could keep the nursing down to maybe just morning and night.

When I'm working I just nurse her when I get home from work (even though she's not hungry) and at bedtime, but on the weekends it's still on demand and I'm not sure if it's going to stay that way throughout the summer or if she won't miss me as much since I'll be home.  We'll have to see.  I don't plan on making any drastic changes over the summer since I'd like to enjoy my time off without any major upheaval, but we'll have to see about making some changes by the time I go back to work in September because as much as I love our nursing sessions I'm very quickly approaching my "DONE" limit.
