    Awwwww… trip down memory lane! I love Morgaine, she’s one track minded… *you need to wear more dresses, Katrina!*

    I do need to wear more dresses, Shannon. I was when pregnant (thanks to LIndsay) but I haven’t been able to find many skirts and I don’t think people would appreciate the whole pull a dress over my head to nurse thing! I bought several dresses when I was pregnant that I had every intention of wearing (with buttons on the front) but I find it FAR from modest….and my kids, well, they nurse FOREVER!
