I’ve finally been brave enough to dive into sewing clothes. It started with basic “pillow case” dresses for my niece, Eliana, which then branched off into trying to make clothes for Ari and Baby #2. I finally found a boy toddler pattern for a romper (there are so many girl dress patterns but barely any boy patterns out there) and have been able to make some cute clothes for Baby #2 which I am hoping fits him. I also have another romper all cut out and ready to sew for Ari’s size but I have been so distracted with all the other things that I want to sew that I haven’t circled back to it yet.
I have also bought a couple vintage patterns for me because I want to try to make my own clothes. Eek! As you can see in the second picture above, I bought a pattern that can be for overalls or dresses. I am so excited to try this out. I cut out the pattern already. I plan on sewing the dress before giving birth and I hope to fit into the dress a couple months postpartum. If this dress works out, I want to try the overalls. Russell pointed out that it’s very Mamma Mia-esque which I am so happy about because yay! I love that movie (the first one, second one was okay). (more…)
Remember when I used to do pregnancy updates when I was pregnant with Ari? Well, here’s my first pregnancy update for baby #2!
It won’t so much be a pregnancy update than an update. But it’s related to pregnancy, so now we’re back to pregnancy update. Okay, I’ll just get on with it.
This baby moves way more than Ari ever did in the womb. (more…)
I haven’t updated this blog in a little while. And the longer I go not writing in it, the harder it is to get back into it. Scrolling through all my photos the past few months, I can see that there are a lot of gaps to fill. So without further ado, here is a quick – but long – bullet point photo dump.
- I went on my first girls’ trip without Ari or Russell. I traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina! I went with a fellow mommy friend and it was one of our first trips without our kiddos.
I haven’t had the energy to want to blog as much because changes are happening…
Yup! We’re expecting baby #2 on November 2018! We also found out a couple weeks ago that…IT’S A BOY!!
Will blog more once I am out of the exhausted phase of this pregnancy. 🙂
