Seven months!

Right on time this month: Maggie Joy is seven months old today!

Seven months!


Baby girl is growing right off of her quilt!

Seven months!

Sweet, toothy, rashy-faced (teething! more teeth! she's up to six now) little girl.

Maggie is a very busy girl these days. She loves to people-watch, dog-watch, and everything-watch. She's super distractible, and nursing her is practically a contact sport now. Gone are the days when I could put her down to sleep in the living room while we watched television or played a game of Catan. Now that's way too exciting. Maggie just doesn't want to miss anything!

But Maggie's latest really big thing is ...  mobility! She's army-crawling around now, and spends time every day working on her core strength - doing push-ups, getting on all fours, rocking back and forth, and practicing her yoga ("plank pose"). I'm guessing it's only a matter of weeks before she's crawling all over the place. Watch out world! Here comes Maggie! (More to the point, watch out Joe!)

Now she can sit up (mostly) unassisted, but who cares about sitting when you could be moving?

She can also eat more foods now, but she's mostly pretty "meh" about solids. She desperately wants to try everything we are eating, but when she actually tastes it, she's like: How can you guys eat this vile stuff? WTF.

What are those pants, you ask?

Seven months!


Big Butt Baby Pants, of course! In baby wale green cord with a psychadelic canvas bottom.

Seven months!



How many of these pants have I made? For some reason, this pair gave me so much trouble. There are a bunch of hopefully not-too-noticeable puckers in the crotch of these pants. I redid that area like three times but the problem only seemed to get worse. So they are "Big Pucker Butt Baby Pants." Well, luckily, with such a fetching model, who would ever notice a few puckers, right?

Seven months!

    1. I know! It's crazy to compare these photos with the first quilt photos I took. She is growing so fast.

    1. Are you saying psychadelic swirl butt is hilarious? Hehe. Such a fun pattern! (And wonderful use for scraps!)

  5. Love the green cord! And the purple book cubes in the background! I think i need some purple furniture in my house! As for food... our little guy is doing the same thing... wanting to eat everything we eat but not actually taking any serious amount of food in. Annoying!

    1. Thanks! My sister made those cubes from MDF and we painted them purple - to go with our orange walls, of course! That was ages ago. They are very sturdy (I think they each weigh exactly one ton) and handy.

  6. She is SO adorable! And no way she is 7 months, didn't you just have her?!

  7. She sure is looking ready to start exploring! It also seems amazing to me she is 7 months already. Thanks for telling us about the puckers as I never would have noticed in the photos, and it makes me feel a bit better about the puckers I have in the pants I made from that pattern! Once they are on the baby who's going to notice?!

    1. These are SO PUCKERED. Jeez. I think it was these fabrics - some fabrics have a bit more stretch (even wovens) and I think I end up just stretching them into shape - not possible with this cord and canvas.

      She is all about the exploration now. Heaven help me!

    1. I am determined to get my money's worth from this pattern. And who can resist contrasting baby bottoms?

  9. You're killing me with those pants...I keep trying to resist buying the pattern, but your cute pants in every post are not helping!!
    And can I just say that she has the most fantabulous eyes (yes, that's a word). They are just filled with so much joy (how appropriate that that's her middle name I suppose)
