For My Buddy

Lately I've been calling Sawyer "Buddy." I think it's because I'm about to call him Baby and I know he's not a baby anymore, but the "B-" sound has already started to form on my lips and I can't stop it, so I roll it into Bbbuddy.

So, I sewed for Buddy. He needed some more big boy summer clothes. He can still wear all of the shorts I made for him last year, but the matching onesies don't fit.

The above little number was sewn from the blue gingham sent to me by Julia. It's not like regular gingham. It feels a little stretchy and maybe Spandexy.


And this little outfit is from some fabric I picked up in the winter, knowing it would become shorts for Sawyer. I had forgotten about it and found it in my use-immediately pile (when I found the pillowcase for Spenser's dress). I only had a small piece and if I didn't make them this summer, there wouldn't be enough left to make anything useful with it. Use it or lose it.

(Note to self: Next time take a picture of the outfit before giving him a free Slurpee...)

I think I call all my boys buddy. You're right it's probably evolved from baby and I just never noticed it that way. Plus, it's easy to have something that they all respond to. Some better than others. ;o)

Haha, I was wondering what that spot on the top was...I thought maybe strawberry.

DD is over 2 years old and DS still calls her Baby. I have a feeling this nickname is going to stick for life.

Well done Lera for being so organised with your use it pile. I think the outfits are gorgeous- just right for a growing boy so play in.
