I second what limabean said, I made a woven for myself that I used with my first, and even without hemming it has held up beautifully. My second is due any day now, and I'm fairly certain that will be the first thing I use to wear him/her. I never liked stretchy wraps, my baby was too big, too soon, and the wrap would get stretched out and baby would sag. It was obnoxious. She was also a summer baby, and the knit made me sweat.
I had a 20 lber at 9 weeks, and we LOVED the babyhawk we borrowed from a local mom. Once she wanted to be more mobile and in-out, a pouch sling was our next carrier, and she wore that until she passed 35 lbs(and almost hit 3 ft tall!). I'm small, too, only 5'2", and I had no problem with her in the pouch sling. 35 lbs was when I got too preggo, though, and wearing her was just not an option.
In a few years I anticipate the same problem (DD is only two and we have a toy chest full) and then we will get a beanbag chair cover and stuff it with them. They have ones with mesh windows made specifically for stuffed animals, but I can't find the link.

This time I directly sowed them. I love growing squash becuase it germinates fast, comes up strong, and is super easy to grow. Talula...

CultivatingMyRoots is in Roseville, but she probably just had her baby so that's prolly why we haven't heard from her in awhile. If you read this Marquerite, Addie has a ton of tomatillo's volunteering in her garden. She would love to share with...
I got mustard greens from my garden, and made all sorts of things; a raw food soup, salad, and something I've already forgotten.... I also got enough cilantro to make salsa, and there was plenty more! I am trying to keep it from bolting, and so far it seems to be doing well. My tomato plants are flowering, and FarmerCathy, both of the seedlings I got from you are superbly content, and looking gorgeous! The Isis candy is growing a bit more daintily than the Peacevine,...
If you REALLY decide to get the abx (which I think are the devil and gave me and my daughter AWFUL systemic thrush that honestly cost me three months of my life in agony from my nipples and my intestines, not to mention my daughter's colic and digestion/food intolerances) remember to get a saline lock instead of the IV, so that they don't keep you hooked up. I would think a midwife would know that, but I don't know if the hospital has 'rules.' Otherwise, I think the...

I've done paperbackswap.com, but that looks cool! Paperbackswap is even slower(but you get credit/other books in return), and that looks like an adventure.
