Little Libra Update

For all you friends who are following little Libra's (Jr.) progress. .....yesterday he was 4 months old and weighed 25 pounds exactly. Four month old crias usually weigh about 60 pounds. You may think this is not a pretty picture of him, but it sure is to me. He just finished eating his "gruel".Like most little boys, he hates to have his face washed. I'm up to feeding 6 ounces, 4 times a day now, but think I may cut back to 3 times a day for a little relief for me. He's still slurping and sucking down his concoction. Here's where I talked about the recipe - http://northstaralpacas.blogspot.com/2009/01/libra-cria.html

Libra is beautiful. I think of you often and hope you are well.

My days of making woolies' animals may be ending soon, thanks to the government, and their new laws that anything for children must be tested for lead.
Ahem.
Does your fiber contain any lead??!!
Take care,
Sara

A messy face is a lovely sight when you're worried about your boy! What a sweetie...

Woolies - speaking as a mom, I think the CPSIA as written (is that the right acronym?) is completely stupid. My kids can't have one of your lovely creations made from Maple's gorgeous alpaca fiber?? C'mon!! I certainly hope it gets fixed...
