I skipped out on last week’s Best Shot Monday, but I’m back in it again this week. Of course, it seems like I was too busy (with the API auction, among other things) to crack out my SLR this past week and only took a few snapshots with my P&S. However, I still have something to share from my SLR – a picture that Jody (my husband) took. And I’m even in it (well, a bit of me is)! As some of you know, I’ve been running a photo contest on my blog to help promote the upcoming World Breastfeeding Week (Aug. 1-7). I’ve receivedRead More →

I’ve received 25 beautiful breastfeeding photo entries so far for the WBW photo contest – from newborns to toddlers to twins and siblings tandem nursing, and even a couple of kids nursing their dolls. :) I’d love to receive just a few more. :) The good news is you still have time to submit yours! Sunday, July 15, is the last day I will accept entries for the contest. If you want to win an “I make milk. What’s your superpower?” t-shirt, send me your photo ASAP. Here are the details about the contest. Winners will be announced by Friday, July 20. Thank you! :)

I know I’ve talked about the *Attachment Parenting International online auction fund-raiser before, but here I go again. This time, with pictures! ;) As I type this, 28% of the items on the auction (of over 200 total items) have yet to be bid on. Which means there’s a WHOLE lot of stuff to be had for well under retail value. Now to further tempt you to click over and start bidding, I want to take a few minutes to show off some of the cute and cool items currently open for bidding. First off, there are these two adorable dresses that my mom made…Read More →

I saw this over on The Whole Family and had to play along too. ;) 71%How Addicted to Blogging Are You? Mingle2 – Online Dating It could be worse, right? Right?! ====================================================== Don’t forget – only a few more days left in the Breastfeeding photo contest. If you want a chance to win the t-shirt over in my sidebar, please send me a picture. :) The deadline to enter is July 15.

Some days you have to throw out your plans and just go with the flow. Today was one of those days. I had planned for the kids and I to attend a monthly social put on by my home birth midwife. We’ve yet to go to one because they are held the exact same time as our local AP meeting each month. However, I figured we’d skip the AP meeting this once and go catch up with my midwife, who I haven’t had much of a chance to chat with at all since 7 months ago when Julian was born. However, after being awake forRead More →

I’ve got a few minutes to write a quick catch-up post, so here goes. I’m bowing out of Best Shot Monday this week because I didn’t take many pics last week and, of the ones I did take, I haven’t had time to edit them. I hope to be back up again next week. :) On Friday, Ava had her 3-year check-up. She’s healthy and growing well – 38 inches tall and 36 lbs. There were a couple of things that I was concerned about (hearing and speech stuff) that I brought up with the doctor and will write more about them another time afterRead More →
