Six Months Old

Seriously, where has half a year gone?? It seems like just yesterday the boy & I were picking out baby names. Now this incredibly fun, bundle of love, has been our world for a whole six months!
Does this mean I need to start planning her 1st Birthday, already?! Ahh, time sure does fly!
Rowan now weighs 16lbs & is 26″ long, double her birth weight & grown 6″. She can roll both ways, although she gets stuck on her tummy a lot and forgets she knows how to get back to her back…this makes for a very cranky baby. Because she hates tummy time so much she isn’t quite crawling yet; more like spinning. She can almost sit up by herself, I’m sure she will have this completely down by next week. 
Over the past month we have been introducing solids. So far she loves everything, but peas (carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, apples, bananas, pears). Two new teeth have also taken up residence over the past few weeks & I am so glad she loves teeth brushing time!
Bella & Rowan have become the best of friends & are ever so much interested in each other. Her favorite activities are jumping (especially in her jumper), reading, putting things in her mouth, beating the buttons on her activity center, looking at herself in the mirror, & anything outside, to name a few. 
She is such a happy baby & I seriously enjoy spending every minute with her. I’m so thankful I am able to be a stay at home mommy.
We’ve also done quite a bit of traveling recently & I think the travel bug has already bit her. I couldn’t ask for a better travel buddy. 30,000 miles under her belt & counting!
And best of all…She says mama!!

City Gym Shorts

A few days ago, myself, RonyaMai, & Amber had a City Gym Shorts sew date for Amber’s birthday. Amber taught us the ins & outs of the shorts since she had already whipped up a few pairs.

 City Gym Shorts are a free & best of all easy pattern!

In the past, I haven’t been too into making garments, but it’s quite possible I had so much fun making these that I bought a serger!! I blame Amber & Mai. They had their sergers out while we were making the shorts & let me just tell you how much easier & quicker it went with serging. 

Don’t you just love how my shorts turned out?? I’m pretty impressed with them, but there is a story…

After getting these babies all cut out, nicely serged, and bias tape sewn on, I headed over to the cutting table so Amber could show me the next step. When all of a sudden, we realized I had two butts! Seriously! I was so mad at myself. I even looked to make sure I wasn’t cutting two of the same pieces, but I surely did anyway!

At that point I needed to head to an appointment, take a breather, & re-group before I was going to rip them out. Good thing I had that extra time because turns out the size I cut probably would have been a little snug fitting had I cut what I was supposed to.

I ended up finishing what I had & they fit perfectly! Thank goodness! I really wasn’t looking forward to ripping them out. So sometimes two wrongs do make a right!

I do however feel like our supervisor should have better informed me of my mistake, in the beginning. If only she could talk. She was looking rather cute on the job though!

I’ll be making her a pair next!

Here’s a peek at the rest of the crew’s. Didn’t they turn out cute!
