Preparations

My Blessingway is tomorrow and I've been busy getting things ready. Since it coincides with my 36 week home visit, I cleaned out the upstairs room where I'll most likely be having the baby, set up my La Bassine, and pulled the newborn clothes and diapers out from storage. A friend of mine is planning most of the gathering, so I'm just making a few good things to eat. The one I'm most excited about is a tropical lime torte with mango compote that my mom made for my sister's wedding. I cannot describe how delicious it is, so I advise you to make it yourself and see why I love it so much. My friend is going to come a bit early to take some fun/artistic belly shots. After that, we're doing a bellycast with my midwife's help, and then the fun begins with the actual Blessingway.

  7. Yep, Jill and Jen, yours both came. Thank you both for your lovely designs!

    I don't think any of the "real life" guests have ever been to one or even heard of one for that matter, so it will definitely be a new experience for everyone involved.
