Where has the time gone! I feel like blogging for me has become something of the past 🙁 Since having Hunter finding time to do my hobbies has currently disappeared and I’m left prioritize which ones are truly most important. I’ve been spending my new time sewing these days and really loving it. Both kids have been getting some cute new outfits. HU is now 5 months old and still seems to need me 24/7, its been such an adjustment since having Gryphen. We were at a fun stage with G and now we’ve stepped back to start all over while trying to keep her entertained.
Some fun things are G these days is she’s loving learning to spell her name and writing her alphabet. She’s learning to read and can read a couple of her books, we think she might have memorized the story from what’s on the pages but she can read some of the actual words which is decent. Who knew having two children would truly capture all of your time!
Until next time lovelies ❤️
I love my son I really do! He’s beyond amazing but something has changed. This darling little gem has taking to being “colic” and now screams all day and night.
I would actually be going crazy if it wasn’t for my ring sling. The only way to stop Hunter from crying is by holding him upright and moving around! If I sit he screams, if I lay him down he screams, if I put him in the ring sling and clean and do housework he’s happy and sleeps!
What did you do to settle your LO when they hit that “colic” stage? We’d love to hear what worked for you.
I’ve noticed that at least once a week I’m making Gryphen some pants! I either use an old shirt that I’ve come across or some very adorable fabric I’ve purchased but she’s always getting new pants! Unless you’re shopping just sales or lower priced stores kids clothes can really add up. I want to share with you today my very quick way of coming up with a pattern for kids pants! I adore making different types of pants this way and slightly changing them to fit perfectly to my skinny long-legged Blondie!
Paper of any kind that’s durable
Scissors to cut paper
Marker or pen
Pants in the size you want to remake.
I roll out some paper and tape it to the table to ensure the paper doesn’t move while I’m tracing. Once it’s taped I trace around the folded pants creating one leg.
I like to write all the info on the paper so I can quickly identify the pattern later.
Measure the waist band. Then on the paper measure out and cut the proper size. I find if you try to measure the waist band it’s self you will get one that’s too small. Step 4
Once the pattern is completed I pin all the sheets together for safe keeping (and organization).
I love these little pants that I’ve created for the baby & can’t wait to try them on. I’ve made them to fit around 3-6 months and used an old pair of roots jogging pants.
Hope you’ve enjoyed learning how to make an easy pattern for kids pants! If you want to see any other patterns please leave a comment below 🙂
We spent our last weekend looking at house after house after house in the Niagara Falls area. Sadly out of all the houses we were shown we really loved one but it sold before we were even able to make an offer 🙁 Depressing! Well after spending our Saturday morning looking at more we decided to surprised Uncle Morgan with lunch at work! Gryphen just adores Morgy!
After we enjoyed our delicious lunch we picked up from Commisso’s Fresh Foods
we strolled down and snapped a couple photos with the falls. The weather was beyond perfect! We had a very big surprise planned for after lunch so sadly we weren’t able to jump on one of the Hornblower Cruises boats to get a closer look at the falls. Gryphen was sad but she was pretty excited about our next destination! Stay tuned to find out about our little secret 😉
