It's Discovery Monday!

knitted_womb.JPGAs new parents if sometimes feels like you're in it all along, inventing and discovering all these wonderful, confounding, vexing, rewarding mysteries as you go. The truth, of course, is more complicated, and more simple. Some experiences are totally unique. And sometimes, it feels like there's nothing new under the sun, and we're just one more in a loooong chain of parents that stretches back 6,994 or 6 million years, take your pick.

What prompted this rumination, you ask? This morning, Blogging Baby discovered feto soap, and I discovered the knitted womb. Playdate!

Today: Sweetest fetus soap: weird and cute?
"...a cuddly, cute uterus doll"

Way back in the day:
Fetopia: home of Cletus the Fetus
Mommy, where do babies come from?

ever since i found out i was pregnant, i have been obsessed with making fetuses cute, in the hopes that i can make a crib quilt with a fetal them that isn't creepy.

my strategy is to go with non-human fetuses. my feeling is that, you slap some bunny ears on something, and, voila!, it's cute. i did some bunny-fetus monoprints for a class i'm taking, and the other kids were impressed with the adorableness of my bunny fetuses.
