The new baby's lambskin came in the mail this week. I won it on ebay for real cheaps. I feel a little silly owning three of these now but the girls both sleep on one still and I used them so much when they were little. Then Ben got some checks he forgot about and well there you go, I ordered one for the new baby.
It is the nicsest of the three. The lady auctioning it said she bought it in Germany and it is so soft. I put it in the moses basket and it gave me such a wonderful feeling of anticipation for this new little Hatke.
I read somewhere earlier this week that Indian women used to line the floors of their tents with rabit skins so all the surfaces would be soft for their new babies. I thought that was really sweet. Then I found a rabit skin in my old trunk while I was getting something out for Angelica. It was REALLY soft and Ben suggested lining a little hat for the new baby with it and I think I may do just that.
People might just think we've gone a little tribal here, what with all the animal skins. I just hope the PETA doesn't show up at my door. (or the SSHOA-SHenadnoah Shores Home owners Association.---yikes)
In other news I have made three vain attempts to check out books from the Front Royal Library. I went there to request a book on interlibrary loan and they suggested I buy it for myself on amazon!!! (sigh) Are they TRYING to lose patrons??
