More pictures...

 My mom luckily took lots of pictures from Halloween too so she had a non-blurry picture of the 3 of us!!!  Yay!  I'm super excited that we don't all have to get re-dressed up to get this shot. 
The Beekeeper with his Bees
Nothing says "Let's Party" like breastfeeding in a bee costume!!!  Does anyone else think fishnet hose are really comfortable?  Wish they were appropriate for work/church/etc....

Having a little chit-chat with her Grandma

She's obviously the highlight of this picture, but let me point out that I'm wearing pre-pregnancy jeans here...  They weren't fun to get on and definitely not as comfortable as wearing elastic waistbands, but I'm in them!!!
Question: for those who have breastfed or are currently breastfeeding, did you start having cycles again?  I haven't had a period which I know can be normal while breastfeeding, but when does it come back?  I know people have gotten pregnant while breastfeeding so some people obviously cycle.  Just curious, because there is that crazy part of me that worries that I'll go back to my old ways and never have another period...  Stupid infertility always has me worried!


  1. What cute costumes! Such a great idea!

  2. Love the costumes! You guys are so cute!

    With breastfed baby #1, I started cycling after we started solids at 6 months.

    With #2, I started at 11 months, after I more or less quit breastfeeding.

    Everyone is different. I know people who went 18 months or more. :)


  3. I was hoping I wouldnt get my period for a year or more with breastfeeding and all but I got it Oct 6th and baby was born July 18th. BLECH. Didnt even make it 3 months.

  4. I haven't had a cycle yet, but I'm exclusively breastfeeding. The way I understand it is that you typically won't get a period until you stop bf'ing so frequently....but my doctor said that you can still ovulate without AF showing up, thus the importance of birth control while nursing. I don't know about you, but I'm happy Af's vacation has been nice and long!

  5. So cute!!!! I still haven't had a real period yet and I haven't bf for 6 weeks! (part of me is worried that my body had gone straight into menopause since I never had cycle issues before but we'll see...)

  6. I was just pumping and not exclusively and I still had 3 months without a period. It was so nice! Paisley is such a cute little bee! And congrats on fitting in your pre-pregnancy jeans! I am so jealous! I can fit in a couple pairs of pre-preg dress pants but not the jeans yet even though I am back to my original weight. Looks like it's more crunches for me! =(

  7. I know a lot of women don't cycle at all while breastfeeding. I was an unlucky one that started back when Emma was 11 wks old even though I was breast feeding exclusively!! I also got pregnant when she was not quite 9 months and I was still breast feeding. Everyone is different - I wouldn't worry about it yet!

  8. I nursed my twins exclusively until they were 14 months old. I got a 'period' at 6 months old, and again when they were a 11 months old, and it came back for good after I stopped nursing.

  9. I still haven't started yet either so I wouldn't be too worried. Love your Halloween costume theme!

  10. Love the bees/beekeeper idea! So cute!!! :)

  11. You look fabulous in the pics! So awesome you're in your jeans!
    I have no idea on the periods but it was interesting to read everyone's comments about it. I'd like to try for baby #2 pretty quickly, so that gives me a lot to think about!
