before, American Eagle size M boxers:
after, (hopefully) size 3-6 mo shorts:
The nice thing about these is how easy it will be to open up the waist band and change the elastic if needed.
Here is another pair of pants I made from a favorite old pair of Patrick's boxers:
(they're the farm ones on the left)
Does it bother any of you that I use old underwear for my babies clothes? :) It doesn't bother me at all. Boxers come in such cute fabrics!
So as not to leave Ruby out, I also got a few tanks and tshirts to turn into summer skirts for her. Here is the first one:
(please pretend that is vertical)
(yes, that grey bump is me)
And the finished product:
(don't stand like a sausage, Ruby!)
(only my mom will get that)
And here it is lying flat, just cut off the top, sewed a casing for the elastic, and slipped it in! Voila! Easy skirt that my girl may or may not ever wear. ;)
And now an update on my goals for last week:
compost - a grudging thumbs up
pop - a happy thumbs down (patrick and I rediscovered the root beer freeze last week and never looked back)
exercise - a limber thumbs up (I am not exercising to lose weight, as someone emailed to ask me. I am doing mainly prenatal yoga to stretch myself out and get my body ready to push out another small human.)
eating out - um...uncertain. I can't remember really. I know we've only eaten out as a family once (Patrick saved my tired ass and brought Subway home last Friday night) but I don't know how many other times. (patrick and I had brunch on Sunday and he took James to Culver's on Saturday...that might be it.)
facebook - an out-of-touch thumbs up. I miss the chatter between my local friends as fb has pretty much replaced random emails, but I stayed away from it again last week. I just see that I have to actually call or email someone if I want to catch up or get together. You know, the old fashioned way. ;)
Hmmmm. What else? I am kind of done typing now but I hope to record our weekend tomorrow or something. One happy thing? I watched Survivor online last night and it was so fun! I haven't watched it in years so it felt really new, and since I am totally in the mood to watch TV right now, like such a treat.
I hope you all had a good weekend and a decent Monday. Thank you for all the baby pants love. :)
