A & C and baby K came over for dinner last night. K was in his carrier and our dog Angel didn't bother him. Then he started crying and she bolted over to him to investigate. I don't think she knew there was a person in there. Later in the evening I was sitting on the futon holding a sleeping K and Angel tried to push in between us. She seemed pretty jealous. I don't think she's ever seem me hold anything except her. She's going to have to get used to that one. It was very cute.

C gave us a sanddollar and told us to set up a fertility altar. She said they had an altar and it gave her peace, like even when she wasn't doing anything about her fertility, things were happening. Something worked because they got pregnant on the first try. K liked the idea. C said the sand dollar reminded her of a womb because it is a circle and when you break it open, small doves fall out. We added it to our fertility goddess that I gave to K years ago becuase the body shape reminded me of hers. Also on the altar- Buddha, Gannesh (the god of the beginnings of things and the remover of obstacles), and the Hindu goddess we took our last name from. I read that meditation increases your fertility, but I'm not really a meditator. But now at least we have the altar.
