big bum baby pants on a 7 month old Eva

I just finished this pair of pants I had started when Eva was teeny tiny.  I used the Big Bum Baby Pants pattern from Growing up Sew Liberated in the 0-6 month size and got to the point of putting the waste band elastic in.  They were so huge then I didn’t bother to finish them, set them aside, and forgot about them until now.  I quickly put some elastic in the waste and hemmed the legs (without the elastic called for in the pattern).  They are still big and baggy to fit over her cloth diapered bum, and soft and comfy even in the 0-6 month size.

And now Eva is 7 months old.  She’s a big girl– wearing 12 month or 18 month clothes depending on the brand.  She’s got 2 teeth on the bottom, one on the top.  Her new blonde hair is growing straight up.  She loves to clap and blow really, really noisy and slobbery raspberries.  Not very lady like, I know, but very funny.  We’ve tried feeding her sweet potatoes a few times because she seems so interested in everything we’re eating.  Her little arms go reaching and her little sucker gets sucking, but when we actually put some food in her mouth her instant reaction is to stick her tongue out and spray that orange stuff all over the place.  It is so funny– and messy.  It’s like she thinks that using her tongue in that way is the way you’re supposed to eat and enjoy those yummy new flavors.  Silly girl.



She’s not crawling yet and can just roll from her back to front.  Once she gets on her tummy she plays for a bit, does some super man poses, and gets mad.  I love this stage where she can just sit with a basket of toys and she’s staying in it much longer than my other kids did.  I think Jonah is the only other one that waited longer than 7 months to start crawling and getting into EVERYTHING.  What a blessing to have her as my 6th baby!!
