Are these pockets for breastfeeding?

I really like this simple little outfit, a real simple blouse and skirt, but the model on the right, with her little blouse, them pockets just don't do it for me, maybe with a pair of jeans or maybe if I were breastfeeding or something, but not with this graceful skirt! All I can see is the pocket being unbuttoned and a breast falling out!

Not Patterns but Squirrels and Woodpeckers and Such

Since I spend so much time at this computer, I had the hubby remove my widow screen so I could get photos of the birds and squirrels as they feed 4 foot from my desk.

We just had an Icestorm and the babies were hungry. But I didn't realize HOW hungry til I noticed this beauty eating a birdseed popcicle. The sleet had frozen in the bottom of the cup with the last bit of seed and he managed to dig it out and sat there for 15 minutes munching away on ice and millet.

And then I spotted this duo which is very unusual. A woodpecker and a wren sharing the same peanut butter and seed pine cone. Their friendship didn't last long but I did manage to capture it for posterity.

3 Legged Race

Jenny, on the left, & Sue, on the right, are getting ready for the 3-legged race. I think someone forgot to tell them that the legs should be tied together instead of Sue's foot being on top of Jenny's!

Leave it to Beaver

Doesn't this little boy look just like Jerry Mathers of Leave it to Beaver? The way he stands and the little smile on his face, not to mention the ears (sorry Jerry if you catch this but face it, you had the ears). The pants are pretty cool too. They have the Sailor type flap front that snaps up both sides and lots of pockets for boys to collect those things that boys frogs and snakes and rocks and such.
