Our Little Man is now 5 months old. It's so crazy that a year ago around this time we were announcing to the world that we were pregnant and now we have the most amazing Little Man in our lives and he's already 5 months old. Recently we've introduced solids to his diet, which has been so much fun. He's loving sweet potatoes, pears and he's learning to love peas. As with everything involving parenthood, we're learning something new everyday. As we learned the other night, Little Man loves to wear his peas more than he loves to eat them.

Back in February, our Little Man was in need of a warmer winter hat. And wanting something that not every child would have, I consulted Simple Sewing for Baby and found the most amazing little gnome hat. So grabbing some super cuddly gray fleece from my stash and some re-purposed ribbon, I put together the most adorable hat.

With the help of my mom, I made these adorable pants for our Little Man. I love how they are reversible! I combined two patterns to make them. I used the pattern from Lotta Jansdotter's "Simple Pants" pattern from her book Simple Sewing for Babies, but I chose the style from Anna Maria Horner's "Quick Change Trousers" from her book Handmade Beginnings. I've never sewn clothes before so it was easier to use Lotta's pattern versus Anna's.
