Quinn really doesn't seem to like feet on pajamas. At first none of the outfits would fit him (his legs were too long) so I went out and specifically bought him outfits without feet. But as he's growing into various gifts that were given his legs are the right length but he isn't having it. When he pulls his leg up to kick it comes out of the foot and then he starts to get frustrated at all the fabric around him. He usually ends up crying after a few minutes of pulling his foot up from the pajama feet.
There are two outfits in particular that fit him pretty so I decided to take off the feet and see how that works.
I only removed the feet on one outfit today - the bear outfit - as a test. Once I ripped the sitches out of the feet I used the sewing machine to do an overedge stitch.
It was my first time using that stitch and the fabric kept sticking when I'd get to the thicker parts, so it isn't beautiful but it does the job.

One issue with ripping the feet off is that you have a large flap of fabric loose at the ankle. In outfits with no feet there is a snap at the bottom of the leg at the ankle that keeps the fabric snug.
I thought that having the fabric loose at his feet might bother him, but he seemed fine with it. He kicked with abandon like usual but it didn't work him up into frustration like seemed to happen with footed pajamas.

Now I have two little bear feet left over that I need to convert into something. I was thinking small stuffed animals.

My mother suggested putting socks on him and then putting him in the pajamas, so I'm going to try that next with his other outfit to see if that works. If it does, at least I got some sewing practice in with this project since I may have wasted my time otherwise.

At 2 months he's really enjoying tummy time and smiling a lot more. And things are settling more into a routine with eating and napping. I'm looking forward to the next several months as he's sitting up, crawling, and eventually walking and talking. 

I guess that's why he's covering his face with his foot.

It was a pretty chill day today. The little guy had two bottles today, since we're ramping up for when I go back to work. And he took them alright. He still prefers breastfeeding, but he'll do just fine when I'm not around.

The stroller body and the car seat each have their own hood that you can raise or lower to keep sun (or rain?) off of a kid. But when you have the car seat attached to the stroller, there's no way to keep them together and closed up to protect the a baby from the elements.

Up until now, that hasn't been an issue. But today was so sunny that there was no way to keep the sun off of the baby's face because the two hoods wouldn't connect.

I ran out to Joanne Fabrics this morning to pick up some velcro and pinned a piece in place.
Once everything was lined up, I started to sew. The fabric was pretty tough to get through and I actually snapped a needle. I probably wasn't using the proper type, but I'm not sure what I needed and I wasn't going back out to the store so I just worked with what I had.
It took a bit of time (and a pair of pliers to pull the needle through at times) but I finally managed to get the piece of velcro secure enough that it would keep both hoods together. And as you can see, there's a perfect view into the carseat where the baby would sit.

Now when the sun is beating down our infant wont fry to a crisp on our walks.

The weather is beautiful. The sun is out and it has been in the 60s for what seems like all day. So Chris took advantage and did some yard work.
Quinn and I went out on the deck to play and enjoy the sunshine as well.
We even did a little bit of tummy time, although he was pretty exhausted and ready for a nap at that point.

It's great that the weather is getting nicer. I'm really enjoying being able to get out of the house more.

The puddle at our local park has turned into a pond. As you can see, the ducks are enjoying it.

I got to run some errands this afternoon, which was nice. I snapped a shot of this nice Avengers display at the local Target for Chris. It's quite elaborate, with an Iron Man that flies around and a Hulk sign that lights up.

I'm a little bummed we won't be able to see the Avengers movie in the theater in a few weeks. At least the wait for movies to hit DVD and cable isn't like what it used to be. Just a matter of months as opposed to years.
