|Archer isn't used to always having his photo taken. Often times he gets distressed when I pull out the camera.|

I made him a vest to wear to the Reindeer ball using the Oliver and S pattern. But when I saw this pattern I knew I needed to make him another special outfit. I was hoping to get this done by Christmas and I did. So he wore this to Christmas Eve Mass. I made him a matching hat that barely fit.
|Very hard to get a good picture of all three of them!|
|He looks tired here.|
Pants are Simplicity 2291
I liked these because they are footed pants. The girls think they look like pajamas. I like them because when it's cold out I can layer a pair of socks underneath. And when I take him out of the house I don't have to worry about his pant leg riding up and exposing his bare skin. It can get really cold here. With windchills in the negatives so dressy warmly is important.
|This photo cracks me up. He loves tummy time.|
The jacket is from the Oliver and S Lullaby Layette pattern. I made it with sweatshirt fleece and lined with knit. I have another jacket planned already. In flannel this time.
He wore this with a red long sleeved shirt I bought. Very warm outfit!
This is the second sleep sack I made. The first one was sleeveless. But now that we are in the coldest part of winter he needed one with sleeves. The ones you buy at the store are one size fits all. Well they don't fit him. So this one is really big and cozy. Again, made out of sweatshirt fleece. I also made a hat to wear to bed on really cold nights.
This is the vest. It was a lot of fun to make. I used baby cord. Sorry for the poor photo. It's from my phone.
This outfit was made from a double micofleece. The dark blue is the one side and the light blue is the other side. I wore this on him to go for walks when it was chilly. So this outfit went over his clothes. This is Simplicity 1546
These are the pants to the Lullaby Layette pattern in 3-6 months. A bit big here. He was just little here.
I made this before he was born. The body suit to the Lullaby Layette pattern in the 0-3 size. He was so tiny here. But he grew so fast. I think he was only able to wear this a couple of times before he grew out of it.
And how could I forget the baptismal gown? I will have to post that another day.
I think I remembered everything. Not pictured is another sleep sack (not that thrilling haha) and that hats I made him. But I think that's everything else. I have some more things lined up. But first something new for me to wear. I can't seem to lose the last 10 pounds. It's frustrating. So I am trying to accept my new body size/shape for now and make myself a few new things. I spend most of my days in sweatshirts and yoga pants but occasionally I do like to dress up haha. Caring for babies is so messy.
