Nursing Clothes

With Easter less than a week away I have been thinking about getting myself a new dress for Easter. Of course I got the girls each a new 'Easter' dress, but I haven't gotten a new one in a few years so I thought it was time. Now this presents a problem since Samantha is only 3 months old and I'm nursing her. I started looking for a nursing dress online - just to see what's out there. Here's the problem. Why are all the nursing dresses maternity dresses (tops too)? You would think that common sense would tell the designers that if I want a nursing dress then I am no longer pregnant - I mean this seems pretty obvious to me. If I'm currently nursing then I've recently had a baby therefore don't need something to make look like I'm still pregnant. You could take this the other way to although there are those lucky mothers who can nurse all the way through their pregnancy with out losing supply.

So would it be to much to ask for a nice regular sized dress that has easy nursing access? Right now I'm stuck looking for a wrap dress or loose v-neck because I would really like to look nice and have a new dress for Easter.

The Girls

Ladybug and Butterbean are starting to interact with one another (as opposed to Ladybug smothering Butterbean with 'lovin').

Butterbean used to cry whenever Ladybug would hold her, which did not bother Ladybug at all. In fact she figured out that a thumb was a easy way to quiet Butterbean.

Watching a movie

Ladybug has continued our bedtime tradition of reading and has decided that she will be the one to read to Butterbean. I think Butterbean enjoyed it.

I think this has to be one of the greatest joys of being a parent of two - watching your children interact with one another and love on each other (even though sometimes love takes the form of hitting). I love watching Butterbean's eyes light up when she sees Ladybug.


The bathroom has been finished for a while now but I kept forgetting to take pictures of it. I have the most wonderful and patient husband in the world. It took me almost 2 years to decide on everything (tile, paint, etc) so he could get started. Here it is all finished:

Didn't he do a wonderful job? Thanks Honey!
