Modest Monday and a Link Up!

December is here and our calendar is full! We have three birthdays in December and Sean’s birthday comes first.

I surprised him and asked his mom to come and watch the children while we went ice skating together (plus a quick trip to the Apple store, his favorite store. Mine would be a clothing or book store, but his is hands down, the Apple store!). The last time we went ice skating together we were courting, so it brought back a lot of memories!

Ice Skating with a skirt and leggings on.

 

It took me awhile to get used to ice skating again. I never did fall, but I kind of cheated and held onto Sean’s hand the whole time. 😉  I wore fleece lined leggings with my skirt from eShakti.

We went home so I could nurse the baby and then we went to a performance of the Messiah. My sister sings with the Kansas City Choral every year. This was probably the best year I’ve heard yet, it is so inspiring and encouraging to hear the music being sung!

Polka Dot sweater with black skirt

I bought a new sweater from Kohls recently and love the polka dots! It’s really soft and the collar can be unbuttoned for a different look.

Dangle Flexi Clip from Lilla Rose

Isn’t this new dangle flexi clip exquisite? I just love it! I braided two small braided and pulled it all back and up in the clip with a braid. Very easy to do and I got compliments all night on how pretty this clip was!

    I love your blog and find you so encouraging! I had some questions for you since your a seasoned mama (:

    I’m still nursing our first born who is 20 months. He loves it and nurses to sleep and nap. He still prefers it over food for the most part and is a picky eater. We just found out were pregnant again so I’m very anxious about how he will do if my milk dries up and
    All that goes along with that. I feel bad he has to wean this way! Any advice?!? Did you nurse while pregnant?

    Blessings

  6. I love your outfits Caroline, and happy birthday to all in your family who have birthdays this month!

    Hey maeghan, I can jump in here too; all my kids have had to be weaned “that way”. Hubby and I have 4 children 4 and under (no twins/triplets :)…I’ve always been nursing a baby when I’ve gotten pregnant with the next baby, and I’ve had to wean by the time I’ve been about 20 weeks pregnant (nursing gives me contractions, ones that I can feel and time – eek! – so I’ve had no choice but to wean). It is hard, absolutely…on baby and on mamma…what I tried to do was shorten the nursing sessions and eventually drop nursing sessions. Do it slowly so you don’t get engorged, and spend extra time cuddling rather than letting him nurse. Try to distract the little one from wanting to nurse (read a book, go outside, have a snack, etc). Eventually get down to a first thing in the morning and a before bedtime nursing session, and when you’re ready you can drop those too. Of course you’ll need to up the liquids/solids the toddler is getting, since they won’t have your breastmilk anymore.
    Hang in there! Just go slow, take your time, and be patient with him and yourself 🙂 If you start soon enough you’ll have time to wean gently (over a period of months). It’s not as difficult on baby or mamma if you go slow.

    • I’m glad you left a comment Melissa! I’ve never nursed during my pregnancies, so I don’t have any experience weaning while pregnant.
