I just ordered myself one of those living lockets(like origami owl but less expensive!) for Mother's Day
Good for you! I ordered a new makeup palette the other day, for Mother's Day.

Wow! I'm feeling huge and I think I'm about a D! I'm usually an A or a B if I'm feeling optimistic
Hmmm, that's interesting about the binkie. My one can't hold it in either, and she may have a tongue tie.

Oh yes. Permanent indent on my couch, lol. I'm working on stuff in two minute increments because that's all the time I have before screaming commences. Good thing DH is helpful!

We have to practically hold it the whole time for it to stay in at all, but if I do she's perfectly happy...

Will I successfully transfer her so I can do laundry? Hmm...
That reminded me of the photo I took of Luke nursing. He's like 'mine!!! Muah ha ha!!'

I'm guilty of taking tons of BF pictures. She makes the best faces when she's feeding!

Super moist lips.

Is it normal? If your baby gets them, then surely you know what I mean. After nursing, Luke's lips are creamy soft, moist looking.

Normally they look like normal lips - maybe a little dry even - but after nursing they're all different.

I get about 2-4 oz per breast when pumping currently, which is about what they eat in a feeding. You'll pump more when they eat more, and of course be constantly replenishing your stash. I usually only have an extra day or twos worth, but I have NO trouble pumping either

My girls stayed in OS diapers til PLing, but my problem with leaky diapers on Alie is in newborn ones! Stick thighs!

Alie has a lot of trouble holding in a pacifier too, isn't that another tongue tie symptom??
Shucks about the shirts! I actually won't wear that shirt out of the house... it feels to revealing. But I love it as a house shirt!

I have read that about tongue ties. Nate won't keep his in but I think its because of his bubble palate. I don't think he has a tie.
