Solomon loves bats, and he loves orange. The shirt he is wearing is one of his favorites, but I think it will be time soon to stop wearing it because to others is may seem like he is wearing it for Halloween (which we obviously don't celebrate because of how satanic of a holiday it is). His brothers dressed up in matching outfits for fun. I have actually already seen Halloween decorations at the store this year! In early July!
The kids have a new favorite snack. Dannon just came out with these kid's yogurts that are called "Dannonino" and while I usually never buy that kind of stuff this in an exception. These have been around in Europe for many years, and are a favorite of kids there. It won't become a new staple in our house, but I am glad that they finally sell them here in America.
Last week, I did a lot of sewing. The first picture shows a ring sling I made for someone else, but Miriam thought it was for her and was devastated when I took her out again. The second picture is a Mei Tai I made for myself - I like it a lot and can't wait to try it with the new baby. The third picture shows the curtains I sewed for the school room. I want to sew some more curtains for the kids' bedroom this week because we saw this really cute fabric that has all the planets on it.
Another funny picture of Miriam eating messy:
Not much else is going on. We are busy as usual. I switched midwives because I decided I really wanted to have the same one that attended Miriam's birth, Marinah. She is currently living in Mexico where she is training the local midwives, but is flying up for the two weeks surrounding my due date. The midwife she worked with here is doing my prenatals in the meantime, and since all our babies were born within a couple of days of my due date I am really confident that Marinah will be here for the birth. Today, I had to get some (VERY expensive!!) blood work done because I broke out in a strange and itchy rash a couple of days ago. It could be an allergy, a spider bite (we have lots of brown recluse spiders), a problem with my liver, just a fluke, or any number of things. Hopefully I will know more by the end of the week, and would really appreciate your prayers. I told the lady who drew my blood that I would rather give birth at home with no drugs than for her to poke me, and I think she thought I was seriously insane. Thankfully, a good friend from church came along with me for moral support and told me funny stories to take my mind off the horrible pain of having a needle stuck into my arm.... well, I lived to tell the story!
