That said, Hannah was the luckiest one, because check out some of her new fall duds above.  Great, right?  And the even better news is that all of the patterns are unisex, so Jayce is getting a little mom-made infusion for the fall as soon as we get back from vacation.  I can't wait. :)

All About Boys: The Series

A few weeks ago a few friends and I struck up a conversation on Instagram about the lack of sewing series/emphasis on sewing for boys, and a few hours later the All About Boys series was being planned.  I had intended to get some summer sewing for Jayce underway, but almost 2 weeks of a chest infection put me extremely behind, and these sweet ladies were gracious enough to let me bow out of this round.  BUT I cannot wait for the next round.
Each person has taken the same two FREE patterns and transformed them into something completely unique for their boys.  In addition to the unique spins on the patterns, each boy is a different age, and I always think it's fun to see how the same pattern looks on different children of different sizes and personalities.  Fun, right?

Goodbye Tooth and Re-thinking that Tooth Fairy Business...

Jayce s Tooth 7Jayce s Tooth 6
Well, it finally happened, my buddy lost his first tooth.  It's been wiggly for a few weeks now, and despite the fact that I remember reaching a stage in my youth where I was relentlessly wiggling and pulling out my teeth, Jayce just didn't really care very much about this.  Chris would wiggle it at night after Jayce brushed his teeth for bed and would remind him that he needed to be wiggling it throughout the day.
