Nursing in public

I am getting a lot more comfortable nursing in public these days. In fact I just had some photos taken for this breastfeeding project called a sustaining bond and they are putting the images in a book to pass around in doctors offices and boutiques. I am all about supporting this cause so I signed up and wanted to share my favorite pic from the shoot. If everyone did it, it would be the norm and people wouldnt think twice about seeing a babe getting milk when and where he needs it.
What do you think?

Our 2012 Bucket List

  2012 is gonna be our Sieze The Day kinda year. Not that we nessesarily believe something huge is going to happen at the end of this year...but we are not ruling it out either. I wanted to start a list of some important things I want to do this year. I might add more as I go but here are some things both Zack and I want to have accomplished in 2012....

  • Visit a place (within driving distnO hIance) that Ive always wanted to. I am thinking The Farm in Tennessee would be a perfect outing!
  • Help start an ICAN chapter in the triad area and a birth circle too!
  • Get Lincoln enrolled in preschool
  • Have a weekend getaway with my hubby
  • Get back into nursing school
  • Go to a sweet concert. See someone weve always wanted to but never have (maybe smashing pumpkins, 311, or something)
  • Finish my DONA doula certification stuff and start taking pay for clients
  •Do a crazy obstacle course or marathon 5k as a goal to get in better shape
  • Lose another twenty lbs (about 30 lbs lost so far since sept 2011)
  • Be at my best friends birth :) !!!
  • Completely and radically change the way we eat. Eating more whole, natural and healthy overall not just here and there.

  • Increase my work pay, become a store manager somewhere.
  • Move into a better apartment
  • Get rid of my car and get a minivan
  • Lose 25 lbs
  • Play mass effect 3
  • Work on my book
  • Visit mom in rocky mount
  • Get to a browns game next season
  • Go on a trip with my wife

We will add more and cross off each as we get to it. We hope to look back on 2012 with a sense of happiness and accomplishment even if its just remembering to take advantage of the small moments with our boys. Happy 2012 everyone! Lets make it the best one yet!
