“Honey, can you run up to Walgreens and pick me up some Tylenol, a Snickers and, oh yeah, a breast pump?” Apparently, it could happen! I had to do a double-take when we passed by Walgreens on our way up to Rocky Mountain National Park this weekend. I saw the word “breastfeeding” and I was like, “what? on a Walgreen’s sign?” I told Jody, who was driving and had his eyes on the road, that the sign said “Breastfeeding We Rent Breast Pumps” and he insisted we go back so I could take a picture. :) I wonder if they had this up because ofRead More →

Looking for Best Shot Monday? It’s the post below. :) It was a marvelous weekend around here and it started early. Jody took Friday off of work so I could have a day to do things for myself. Woohoo! I started the day by running an errand to the post office to mail off my contest winners’ items. Then I hit up Kohl’s for their awesome end of the season clearance. Since the prices were so low, I figured I would pick up some things for the kids for next summer. For Ava, I got 3 shirts, 1 skort, 1 dress, 1 pair of shortsRead More →

Just one pic this week, from Nymph Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. The lake is full of lily pads and flowers. We drove up there for the afternoon on Saturday and did some hiking. It was a gorgeous day and was wonderful to spend some time in the great outdoors. :) (More pics from our adventure are here.) You can see more of Best Shot Monday by heading over to Picture This.

Jen at One Mom’s World tagged me to tell you 8 random facts about myself. :) Since I have accumulated some new readers lately (hi, new readers!), I thought I’d share some things that the newbies might not yet know about me, in addition to some things that might be news to the old-timers as well (hi, old-timers!). ;) 1) I had a planned home birth with my son, Julian in Nov. 2006. He was 9 1/2 lbs. 2) I am quite reserved and shy in real life until I get to know someone pretty well. 3) I’m the oldest of three kids. I haveRead More →

“Breastfeeding is a mother’s gift to herself, her baby and the earth.” ~Pamela K. Wiggins Love that quote. So do you remember when I said I was making a collage of breastfeeding pictures to share in honor of World Breastfeeding Week? Well, it’s a little bit past the end of WBW, but I received 62 pictures (plus one of my own I added in) and I finally have it together! :) Thank you all for sharing your beautiful, sweet, cute, inspiring, sometimes funny, but always wonderful breastfeeding pictures with me. :) (Click the collage to see it larger.)Read More →

On Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2007, at 10 a.m. in 24+ countries around the globe, mothers nursed their children to help set a new world record and participate in Synchronized Breastfeeding Worldwide. We were just about to head out the door to attend a social with my midwives, but we took a few moments for mama’s milk and Ava (the budding photographer) snapped this picture. (Isn’t she getting good?) :) Did you get a chance to breastfeed at 10 a.m. yesterday? Were you in your home or out with a group of other breastfeeding mamas? If you wrote about it on your blog, let me knowRead More →
