I did end up having a Supermoon baby!    Yemma Alima was born at 3:40pm on Saturday afternoon, just hours after the actual full moon (11:10am).  It was a peaceful home waterbirth on a gorgeous Spring day - the first of the year!  I'm hoping to write up my birth story today and I'll post it.   Hope all of you still waiting are enjoying the moon anyhow!  We take Yemma out every night to look at it if she's not sleeping and she instantly goes back to sleep.  
Well, the supermoon seems to be helping me a bit.  My water broke in the middle of the night last night.  My contractions died down during the day and they're picking up again now that it's night.     Happy birthing, supermoon mamas!!!

I told DP the other day that it felt like I could shake her hand if I reached up there.  LOL  I am almost 36 weeks and have been feeling intense cervical pressure/twinges for a few weeks now.  
Two nights ago, we had this very discussion about age-appropriateness and Harry Potter at my 3rd grade son's Waldorf school parent meeting.

I made my boys' costumes. My 8yo was a fox and I knit the hat and tail and dyed his shirt and bag to match. My 4yo was a sushi chef and I knit the hat and the sushi for his "treat bag".

Fruit, fruit, and more fruit! Fresh fruit, whole fruit popsicles, green smoothies, smoothie popsicles, orange juice. Yum. Oh, and Ethiopian food. More yum.
