I have been nesting like a crazy person for the last two weeks, but "nesting" seems to take a different form for me: sewing. (As if anyone is surprised...) I have been on a mission, perhaps even a little obsessed, but baby boy has lots of snuggly boy-ness for whenever he decides to arrive.
We never seemed to have enough bibs and burp cloths when Cara was tiny, and I'm not sure if that was unique to her or if it's just a newborn thing, but those are two baby items that I knew for certain we would use again this time. These burp cloths are just Gerber cloth diapers that my mom altered a bit. The middle section of the diapers is always the thickest and most absorbent, so my mom folded and sewed the thinner sides in toward the middle to make the whole thing a little thicker and the perfect size for a shoulder.

All of the fabric I used here came from my stash of scraps. I am pretty excited that I didn't have to spend any money for this nesting insanity, especially since I ended up make six burp cloths and six bibs...
Cara is having a hard time sharing her C. When she saw this one, she said "C for Cara" because that's what a C usually means. I tried to explain that Colin starts with a C too, but my arguments fell on deaf ears. It took her a while to decide that we could all have the same last name too. She thought Cooper was just hers.
These were the easiest baby pants to make, and I love the extra panel in the booty. Even though we are not cloth diapering, I think a little extra room for diapers will be nice.
