Not Wordless Wednesday

McKay has this thing: if he sees Margaret doing something cute, he wants to take a picture of it. (Daddies and their crazy ideas!) And he thinks nursing is cute. A lot of our nursing pictures at home have been taken just because he thought it was cute. This is our most recent one from this weekend.

Apparently Margaret nursing with her sunglasses on is cute. Meanwhile, I'm pregnant, trying to knit, and sitting on our ugly chair. Good times. Oh, and sometimes (90% of the time) we don't dress Margaret. Less laundry! It's easier to clean jelly off a naked toddler than off a shirt.

  1. hahaha. I love that you call it your ugly chair. When I saw it I thought, are they in the foyer at church? It hast the same sort of weird floral vibe!

  2. It's a very comfortable chair- you just sink into it, but if we decide to keep it for any length of time, we'll have to reupholster it.

  4. Hah! I agree with naked babies idea! It's just so much easier to eat an EC when they aren't wearing clothes.

  6. This picture is cute for a number of reasons! The nursing, the sunglasses, the naked toddler, the pregnant belly...

    What do you normally tell people when they ask what your due date is? I know it isn't inquisition Monday, but the size of your belly got me wondering how you handle it when people ask that ever-popular question. Do people take the answer of "between the summer solstice and the fall equinox"??? Are they really ok with that and leave it alone? (I know they don't really have to be "ok" with it, they have to deal with whatever answer you give them...but do they seem pleased with that answer?) Because when I tell people I am due in late August or early September, I feel a lot of pressure to just spit out a date! Almost that I have to justify, that yes, I do in fact know when I got pregnant, when I'm due, I'm not just guessing, my midwife has even relied on -me- to tell her when I'm due...etc, etc.

  7. Mallory, I think I'll do a post on it. :) I do feel the pressure and I often justify it with "I know my due date, but no one else does. Margaret was 3 weeks late and we're not going to get our hopes up." But yeah. Some people have gotten really pushy. :)

  8. What an awesome picture! Love it. :)

    @Mallory--I struggled with the same issue about sharing my "due date." I'm a big believer in the concept of a "due month," rather than a "due day." But whenever anyone asked and I shared my due MONTH, nearly 100% of the time they pressed hard to get an actual due day! It was so annoying. I know that people mean well and that the average person doesn't understand why due dates can be problematic, etc, but still!
