Where the baby wears about as much as the dog

here.doggie.doggie

I'll admit its been awhile since we did laundry. But when I changed Roman out of pj's this morning there wasn't really anything to put on him. He has grown out of so much, leaving only winter clothes, a bathing suit, and a handful of Onesies that still fit. And with his adventures in feeding himself, we go through the summer outfits quite quickly. The laundry just doesn't happen quite as fast as Roman happens. I think its time for more Quick Change Trousers, as he's grown out of all his pairs. I am thinking however that I'll make some of the shorts variety. Jeff refers to all the pants I make Roman as fancy pants. And he gets a teasing look on his face and a teasing sound in his voice when he says fancy pants. And I don't care.

goodmorning.leo

And I will dress my baby in fancy pants.

sniff.sniff.got.any.treats

And I will dress my doggie in a fancy collar.

yea.mom.got.any.treats

And they will both be fine with it because I also give them treats.

There. Weekend planned. Fancy Pants and Dog Treats.

have a good one. xoxo, Anna

  1. You are Anna Maria Horner, if your son cannot wear "fancy pants" there is no hope for ANY of our sons. It's not just the mom of little girls who want to make cute things for our kids to wear! haha.

  2. I am pretty sure you are stomping your foot as you say that. I would be. Men. Phooey. They just are, are, are, well...they would rather us save money, right? Humph! (foot stomp, swing of head/hair)

  3. Hey, our sons have the same outfits! :-D
    I am constantly opening the dresser drawers only to be reminded that I need to do laundry! Too funny. They wear their diapers a lot.

  4. I made "fancy" dog leashes for some friends using my scraps. You could also use the same technique for a collar. I have pictures of them on my blog: ThePaisleyAbbey.com. They are easy to make. Let me know if you want directions. Sorry, but I am not very helpful with the boy pants part.

  6. That made me smile! My husband's friends tease him and say he wears fancy pants and tiny tees. (Besides weddings they are in their jean and hoodie uniform.) I appreciate a nice outfit.

  12. I love your "whole stinkin wall". It's beautiful. Of course, so is Roman. And his dog. Perfect pictures that capture the Dog Days of Summer. Stay cool!

  13. I am BEGGING you - please do not bring Roman to the workshop at the Fritz. I will be there and I am afraid I won't be able to pay much attention to the workshop the sewing machine will run right over my fingers if such a cute baby is in my vicinity. I don't know how you get anything done. If I had a baby boy as cute as Roman I would never get to my piles of laundry let alone have time to make him fancy pants.

  16. Every baby deserves fancy pants. And every mother deserves them too. Happy sewing this weekend! (and he looks very cute in his diaper alone. Here they run around (almost) naked all the time too. It's just too hot to get dressed! I bribe my girl with new dresses, so maybe I should start sewing fancy pants for the boys too, to have something to bribe them with to put on some clothing ;-))

  18. Wonderful weekend plans! Nothing could be better really. Enjoy!

  19. What a sweet post! Both "boys" are adorable! In my opinion, little boys (especially those learning to feed themselves) should be shirtless in the summer - skin's easier to clean than laundry.

  20. Soooooo cute! I love the photo with your drop sticking his tongue out.

  21. your pictures always make me want to come over and hang out at your house. eh, but that might be a bit awkward. :) happy summer.

  22. nothing wrong with fancy pants. you better keep making them as long as Roman doesn't mind.

  23. Jeff sounds a little bit like Brian-- who says "we used to laugh at kids whose moms made their clothes" To which I respond, "you probably did but their moms didn't make clothes like these!" One of my daughters wrote something for me for Mother Day about how my making her dresses (and anything else she demands for that matter) makes her feel loved. So there! Fancy pants ARE treats! Happy sewing and treating! xo

  25. My kids lived in diapers in the summer. Once in awhile I would whip up some shorts if they were lucky. That was 25 years ago, man does time fly when you're havin' fun!!

  26. Oh those little sweeties! Could just eat them both up!

  27. Anna Maria - should have guessed it was painted since you're so stinkin' talented!

    For those of us with less patience (and talent), maybe you could also start a wallpaper line?!

    Thanks~!
