Things I am Sewing

Boy Toddler Rompers

Vintage Pattern

Dress for my niece, Eliana

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…)

27 Week Pregnancy Update!

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…)

Oh, It’s Been Awhile…

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.

Our Family

I haven’t had the energy to want to blog as much because changes are happening…

Baby #2!

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. 🙂

Ari is ONE!

Ari is one year old!

This post is overdue but I wanted to at least finish of his first year summary on this blog. For Ari’s actual birthday, we just took him to the park and he played and crawled around the playground until we could tell he needed a nap. Our original plan was to take him to the aquarium but we figured he’d have fun either way. We (Russ and I) also got ice cream (and shared a little bit with Ari). What I learned from Ari’s birthday celebration was that–and I’m not trying to sound selfish at all but–the child’s first birthday is just as much about the parents as it is about the kid. I mean, I love Ari to pieces but I carried that baby for nine months in my belly, pushed that 9 lb sucker out, and breastfed him for almost 11 months. Not to mention all the late nights and night feedings and crying and breakdowns that happened this past year. So yes, Russ and I also celebrated ourselves with some ice cream on Ari’s birthday because we did it. We made it to a year as parents!
