I did take a few pictures today of a couple of things.........
Now that it finally felt like Fall, I brought out some Fall decor. The garland was cut on the porch two years ago by Logan and I. Our nature table, often neglected, at least now has a start. When the kids came in from playing outside and saw the Fall stuff up they exclaimed, "Mama! Its Fall?!" Yes, I'm horrible and hadn't told them. It was 100+ degrees as of a few days ago!!! Felicity instantly asked to go change into long sleeves, tights, and her jacket. She also voiced concern because the leaves weren't changing color yet. Patience, Sissy Girl, its still in the 80s here. Soon. I TOTALLY get her on this matter!
Felicity picked me a bouquet from the yard, and Logan put it in a jar for her. It sits on the front porch next to the bucket of Sunflower seeds Kian, Lissy, and I harvested yesterday afternoon.
I finally got a few pictures of the henna stain. Its been on for over a week now and is starting to fade, especially since I've been scratching my itchy belly a lot lately. :) Its hard to photograph the henna stain but I'm glad to have gotten a few pictures for Arrow's baby book. This is my nearly 39 week belly.
I packaged up this little gift to mail to Arrow's twin cousin, who has also not arrived yet.
And best yet, this little guy is now done!!!!
I did most of the work on him, by hand, while on bed rest. Once I was off bed rest, this poor guy sat finished, but naked, on my sewing shelf. When I woke up this morning feeling better than I have in days (I've been having lots of "baby action" which leaves me tired and sore), I told myself today was the day he'd get done. I used the kids' rest time to sew up his pants, shirt, and hat, and then placed him in Logan's hands.
He now has a name.
And Logan is a very happy kid.
He'd asked me for a Waldorf doll a year ago. He saw that his brother and sister had one, and that they loved their dolls dearly. And knowing my boy, I knew he saw it as a sign of Mama's love. Some would say he's too old for a doll. Maybe. But he's certainly not too old to be reassured of his Mama's love for him.
