Re: EF chat Wed!!

I dont have small kids so I dont really get those comments, but its just as bad when ppl always tell me how big my kids are. Piper is 3 1/2 and she weighs like 40-41 lbs and my dr told me she's obese But she seriously is not even fat, at all. Let alone obese. She's so super tall its insane. I have to get her size 5 pants just for length and then they are huge in her waist.

Now what kind of cuffs would you put on them? I love ruffles too, but it seems like they are sometimes not as practical because they don't last as long, but maybe I am missing something. My baby girl is tiny, even though she's 9 months old, so I am debating whether to make her more in 9 months size or to make 12 months size. She'll be 12 months the 22nd of December.
Do the 9 months seem to have growing room? You can always just add length and cuff them rather than go up a size. I'm always hesitant to size up with my DD since she's so small, too.

I think everyone should post pictures of their favorite fall woolies/ or diaper that they have so far. That would be fun!!! I'll post first...


That's mine and I made it myself using the Bayside Britches pattern. The wool is Family Roots Emily, which I have like 5 more skeins of... now what to do with the other skeins...?? Any ideas? I was thinking maybe SMSS bloomers with some of it and maybe a Spring time in Hollis sweater?
I love smss bloomers! I say go with that. Im going to make Phe some with NT Pearl and pink trim.

And I have like, no pictures of wool for this year, bc, well we barely have any! Ive been so busy knitting for yymns that I have no time whatsoever to knit for my own kids. But I have about 25 projects planned

TOTALLY!!!

I love ruffles But I hear ya on not lasting as long.. its hard to make ruffly things with growing room since they dont cuff. Do you have the eviepants pattern for longies and stuff? She has SOOO many freaking cuff options is redonk. I that pattern.


On the agenda today...... pee on a stick , and knitting knitting knitting. I just finished a sluething hoodie a couple days ago for a mama on here so hopefully it will be dry today for shipping, and then I have a pair of boy longies Im working on and I just CO a SB Wendy sweater last night in THMILY for a mama on here as well. Its gonna be so pretty!
I bet that sweater will be to die for. You'll have to show a picture on here when you are finished with it... do you know which version it is? Version 1 or 2?

I do have that pattern and I usually use it for my longies. I just have two boys, so knitting for my baby girl I want things to be pretty girly, but at the same point I feel like I want things to last since my DD isn't even a year old. I'll go wild with ruffles on her summer wool for next summer.

Re: EF chat Wed!!

Good morning all! I'm ready to sip some coffe and get ready for a busy day. The girls are getting better and say they are ready to go to preschool today I'm so happy they are feeling better!

I'm planning on starting dinner early today. I'm making ravioli so I can prepare it all early in the day and then pop it into the oven in the evening.

I'm also hoping to start decorating the house for Halloween! I have trick or treat at Disney on Friday, a birthday on Sat and another birthday to go to on Sunday, so n time for decorating this weekend!

You know it is odd, my DD is 12 months and doesn't eat much real food my twins did at that age. I would use my crock pot often and everything would come out soft enough for them and then I would also make homemade mac and cheese, soft meats, pasta dishes, cheese, and they ate so much I never knew if they were getting enough!
Jocelyn on the other hand wont eat the soft meats, use to like cheese, stopped eating it, she will only eat crunchy foods, but she cant have many. She mostly nurses all... day...long... and all...night...long... it is exshausting! By this age I don't remember my twins nursing as much as she does!

My twins grew more and more picky during the 2s and then once they turned 3 they started eating more and more!

My little guy is low on the charts, but I think he's around 10-15% I am still BFing about twice a day. I never thought I'd still be nursing this long (my older two self weaned at 24 and 13 months respectively) but I am glad he still does because I think it where he gets the majority of his vitamins/nutrients. He doesn't eat much/any fruits or veggies and won't take a multivitamin in liquid, gummy or chewable form. He doesn't eat anything squishy, slimy, soft, gooey, too cold, too sweet, etc.

The 9 months on the Foggy Mountain Coveralls have plenty of growing room, but the Bayside Britches are not as roomy since you cannot change the strap length if that makes any sense. I made them both with growing room in the inseam and just cuffed them for now. You see my DD is only 15 lbs at 9 months old and 26 1/2 inches. A tiny little squirt just like my DS2 who is 22.5 lbs and that's a real accomplishment for me and DH (He's 28 months old).

I just got some double ruffles made to my DDs exact inseam, I talked to my knitter and asked if I save the scraps if we can add an additional ruffle later this winter!! So it can cost more eventually but you can still use them! I love ruffles too much to pass them up.
