I think I am melting. Major hot flashes here. If this is a taste of what menopause will be like, include me out.
On the other hand, at least I am roasting for a good reason. I'm 30 1/2 weeks now, and things are starting to feel real. :-) Freddy hasn't been moving as much lately, and when he does the feelings are more stretches and thumps than the somersaults he used to do. Of course, he's about 17" long and 3 pounds now, so room is becoming more of a luxury. I wonder if he missed back when he was able to roll and play with ease.
When Tiri was a new baby, they told me to swaddle her, so I did, and she enjoyed it. But she also had jaundice so she needed laid in the sunlight. This meant she was wearing only her diaper. After she did that a few times, she didn't want swaddled anymore. She seemed to like the leg room out here.
Big baby girl stretchies!! <3 This was 21 day old Tiri.
Looking at the photo, I can't wait to have another new baby!! Look at the little feet! The skinny legs. The sheer baby-ness of it. *Squee*
In other news, I have been making slippers. I have 3 and one thirds pairs done so far, though only one photo taken:
This photo was taken before I finished the ends.
This is a toddler pair, about the size for Tiri. I have made two others; a red and grey pair and a yellow and orange pair, both bigger. I have a brown and dark orange pair in progress. They will be sized for an adult man. Obviously this is for charity. I found a new website recently that supports the Rez and I am in overload wishing I could send then all the things they need. Here is a link for anyone who is feeling generous.
One Spirit: An American Charity in Support of the Oglala Lakota.
This website offers sponsorship opportunities, as well as the Okini List, which is a program that allows people on the Rez to ask for items they need, and donors can ship them directly to the person. A very nice lady keeps their address and you email her if you want to send something. I have been in contact with her and she is charming and helpful. Her email address is at the top of the list.
I suppose that's it for now. :)
