Here’s how much I love it: This is me after dragging my poor, innocent husband 75 miles away to go buy, disassemble, and load up an 80-year-old floor loom to shove in our tiny house. (See photo of giant loom crammed in the back of my SUV.)
I decided I wanted to start this new hobby because I have become obsessed with handwoven baby wraps. Furthermore, the “professional” (art college grad!) artist in me has a hard time letting other people do art-things without at least attempting them myself. Weaving creates a functional piece of art, so I’m sold. Let’s start weaving!
We had a baby appointment this week, and got to see a little tiny, handheld sonogram of him! Our midwife was mostly verifying that he is in fact head down (he was still breech until a few weeks ago), and she kept pointing out his features as she saw them.
His heartbeat is still holding strong in the 140s, and my uterus height is around 33cm. It appears he is a very long, skinny baby right now, so depending on his position, my uterus tends to change sizes pretty drastically.
We’ve got an ultrasound scheduled in a few days. This appointment is totally unnecessary, we just want to see his little face on the big screen one more time before he makes his appearance in the outside world.
