I've been reluctant to post recently because I've been longing for a new camera and to post pictures from my current camera is a bit painful to me. But, I have some things to post about so here goes.
First, I recently made a few baby shower gifts - one for my husband's co-worker and one for my sister. My husband's co-worker doesn't know what she's having.
The pants are a from a pattern I bought at Sew to Speak, the shoes are from a free pattern I found online, and the bibs are from a pattern in Bend the Rules Sewing.
For my sis:
The bag she'll use as a diaper bag. It's an Amy Butler pattern called the Birdie Sling. The small pouch I fashioned roughly from the Artsy Clutch in The Bend the Rules Sewing book but eliminated the fold-over and changed the dimensions. She can use it to hold baby wipes and diapers.
This loot if for her little one soon to be born. The pants legs look uneven but the really aren't...
As for my two little ones - Ben has been getting so much bigger, so much more independent and so much cuter.
He does love gaining more and more independence lately but at the same time he LOVES to be babied by his mama. He loves it as much as I love doing it. It's funny how a mother's mind works - I see another child that is his age and I'm always amazed that Ben is as big as they are. It my mind he's still a baby.
Miles has gotten so much more fun and entertaining. He was looking at a toy catalog that came in the mail yesterday and was pining for everything in it. Finally he said to me, "I just want to jump in there." He laid the catalog on the kitchen floor and jumped right on it. Don't you just love the way a child's mind works? I began to think about all of the catalogs that I receive in the mail that I'd like to jump right into too. Anthropologie, hmmm... the possiblities.
