We had a busy, but wonderful weekend!
Ten women and six little girls gathered to celebrate this new little life growing inside me!
We ate lots of whole foods (organic berry oat bars, organic pb cookies, melons) and then...
chocolate covered strawberries!
We made labor/postpartum supplies: sitz bath bags, mama tea bags and rolled beeswax candles. We made candles for me and for each woman to take home to light and say a prayer when my labor begins!
This is "My Ruth", my midwife. holding my neice, Birdy!
We did henna tattoos (mine above, my "artist" sister's below)..
and had little temporary "henna" tats for the babies and for my 80 year old grandmother!
She picked the butterfly and was quite proud of it!
My mama was in heaven, surround by six little girls.. three are her grandbabygirls.
And Bunny's braid was the icing on the cake.. or the chocolate on the strawberries!
(which Bunny would eat off and put the berry back on the tray. over and over and over... lol)
Sunday--our church picnic!
37 (measuring 40) week belly!
