Wordless Wednesday

Good morning, friends! Today we'd like to share what happens when Ms. Mommy finds herself with some time on her hands (Hahahahaha!) and a spare toddler sheet made out of jersey knit fabric. It's no secret that Ms. Mommy likes to sew, and it's also no secret that she's not real big on using patterns or doing things "by the book". She's more of a slap-dash, winging it kind of gal. As a toddler with a short attention span, I have to say I respect that kind of attitude. 

These are the two dresses Ms. Mommy sewed for me out of the purple striped jersey knit sheet. The first is a simple tube dress that utilizes the existing elastic from the fitted sheet. Ms. Mommy attached a length of fabric beneath the pretty, ruffled end, then sewed up some quick straps. She didn't get a good photo of the straps, but they're attached at the front and snap in the back. They're crossed in the back in these photos, but can be un-crossed to add some length as I grow. 

The second dress is a faux wrap dress. Ms. Mommy traced an existing dress of mine and added an inch for seam allowance plus growing room, then snipped, sewed, and viola! A comfy, cozy, stylish dress that should fit me next Summer.

The Dirtiest Ballerina

By Earl 
Let it never be said that girls can't enjoy playing in the dirt just as much as boys. I have a twin sister, so I should know just how messy girls can get. One of Petunia's favorite games involves picking up handfuls of bark chips and spreading them about on the back deck. Oddly enough, Ms. Mommy isn't as fond of this game as we are. 

Petunia says: "Hey, Ms. Mommy! Don't think I won't get my ballet pajamas dirty just because I'm a girl!"
Ms. Mommy says, "Petunia, my dear, I wouldn't dream of thinking any such thing. Carry on."

Outfit of the Week

 By Petunia
October is almost over, which means the end of crisp Autumn days on the West Coast.  Earl and I have been trying to get out and enjoy the lack of rain as much as possible.  It would be so much easier if I had a pony. A pretty pink pony.

King of the Swingers

By Hank 

Now I'm the king of the swingers 
ohhhh, the family VIP 
I've reached the top and had to stop 
And that's what's been botherin' me 
I wanna be a man, Mr. Daddy 
And stroll right into town 
And be just like the other men 
I'm tired of preschoolin' around!

Visiting Our Cousin

By Petunia
Last month we visited my very favoritest big girl, my cousin, Miss Dee! Unfortunately, she lives a few hours away. Otherwise, I'd be over at her place all the time! She has all the coolest toys, plus she's an amazing dancer. She even takes lessons (and I hear that my auntie Em is the best dance teacher). Mr. Daddy and my uncle had a race to run that weekend, but the rest of us stayed at Miss Dee's house and enjoyed the gorgeous weather.

*Yawn* Good morning, Fashion Friends. Who has two thumbs and a case of the Muhndays? THIS GIRL! So I'm going to take the lazy way out and insert a quick photo of two of my absolute favorite people: big brother Hank, and Ms. Mommy!

Earl and I hope that you're all having a more energetic Monday than we are.

Outfit of the Week

Fall is here!  Which means crunchy leaves to kick, wet leaves to throw, and lots and lots of mud!  And, a great excuse to wear orange.  Why wouldn't this be my favorite season!?

Purple Earl

By Earl
Ahoy there, Fashion Friends! One of the things that kept Petunia and I so busy in August and September was the fact that we were spending as much time outdoors as humanly possible! We're not newborns anymore, so we know that in a few months it will be nothing but rain, rain, rain, all the time! One must enjoy the simple pleasures in life when one can. On this day, those simple pleasures included stopping to smell the neighbor's flowers, which climbed the fence into our yard. How kind of them! 

I didn't just look at and smell the flowers; I touched the flowers, tore the flowers, and even attempted to taste the flowers. Use all your senses, kids! How else are you going to learn about the world?

Little Ms. Mommy ~ Party Dress Version

By Petunia
Good morning, Fashion Friends! Today I'd like to share with you two photos of me in my favorite party dress. Everyone (and by "everyone" I mean a few relatives) says I am the spitting image of Ms. Mommy (in her toddler days, of course) at times, and this first photo appears to be one of those times. I had no idea Ms. Mommy was so adorable!

Dress: Gymboree

We're Back!

By Earl
We're back! Sorry for taking a two month hiatus. Ms. Mommy had her hands full (as you can see by the previous blog post). We've been very busy, and enjoying the last of the Summer weather here in Oregon. We're going to ease back into this blog posting business, so I'll just put this photo right here and call it good.
