Oh what a day...

This weekend I picked up fabric to make Owen some pajamas. Bottoms actually. He can wear t-shirts for tops. I thought it would be cheaper than buying several new sets of jammies but in the end I think it will be a wash. I've got two pair done so far though! It takes me about 45 minutes from start to finish to do a pair of pants.


He tried one pair on this morning so I could check the elastic length. He refused to try the second pair on. I attribute this to his pants aversion rather than the pants themselves. Good thing they are just for sleeping in!

Last night I picked up some finger paints for Owen. He loves to watercolor paint so I thought he would enjoy some finger paints. He tends to stick his fingers in the watercolors anyway. We tried them out after lunch. I showed him how to do it and told him they were not for eating. I guess I didn't explain they weren't body paints either!

Now he's in the tub. With a big cup. Which I usually regret. I told him he could have it as long as he kept the water in the tub, and that mommy did not want any water on the floor. It's not even 1pm yet. What is the rest of the day going to bring! Maybe after his bath he will let me put clothes on him. Ha ha ha!

Where do I put in my pajama order? ;) Looks like a fun day, he's adorable with the body paint! Well, he's adorable all the time, but especially so with the paint.

What beautiful fabrics you picked out for O. Love the cars one best. He's so cute with that new haircut! Did the finger paint have a special scent? Maybe he thought it was yogourt :P
