Baby Love

We're having some baby love going on. We've gotten a couple presents from our friends and market customers and it is SO SWEET!!!! Impossible not to share. How special to have such a strong community around us. I love all the pregnant stories customers share with me at market. Although I could pass on some of the faces and comments I get from a few people when I tell them when I'm due. A barely perceptible wincing, a drawing in of the breath, and then a bad smile to top it off. "Wow, you're due the first week in September? You're going to be so hot this summer, like a radiator!" Thanks for the brilliant observation, you must be a genius.
These are a few pictures of a cradle Stuart's grandfather built; it was built for Stuart's oldest sister Randle, but every child from the family has been in it since. Isn't is gorgeous?! The detail work is pretty amazing and it makes this great sound when you rock it. We still have so many things to do to prepare. It's all a little daunting considering how fast the time is going by. And names for the baby.....seems like one of the hardest things. It's taking on more life in my belly, moving around all the time and adjusting. Weighs around 2 1/2 lbs now. It gets more real every day the fact that we will be parents soon.
