Don't Forget The Boy - Sis Boom Holiday Tour

I’m so excited about today’s post. Little C is making his first appearance in a blog tour and looking handsome too in his mama made Ethan Shirt from Sis Boom. This was Little C’s first photo shoot where I had an objective, and after this photo shoot I’m going to need some recovery time. Trying to take good pictures of a 2 year old (with a energetic almost 5 year old in tow), while not having the camera on automatic, and using a new 50mm lense with no zoom was interesting to say the least.

Yesterday I shared my post for Sis Boom’s Holiday Tour. For the tour I had chosen to sew up the Betsey Apron and Ethan Shirt, however when it came to writing the post about these creations - I couldn’t figure out how to combine the two sets of pictures together. The problem laid in the fact that there was no way I was letting little mister decorate brownies in a white shirt - nope not happening! Luckily Sis Boom was game for me posting twice for this Holiday Tour! Plus he is just so darn cute in his Ethan shirt that he really does deserve his on post!

I took Little C to his daddy’s work for his pictures, both of the kids love going to visit daddy and getting to see the fire trucks. Even better, my husband is now working at a firehouse that is just five minutes away and right across street from our favorite park - which means lots of visits.

Little C was a good sport, it was a blistering 20 degrees outside with a lot of gusty winds, his only requirement to have his picture taken without a jacket was that he wear his elephant hat - he insisted very strongly about that. I just love this hat, I had gotten for him for Halloween (he was an elephant) from the Etsy shop Emily’s Purlfect Knits, she custom made this hat for him and it is just wonderful. I always have the hardest time finding a hat that fits Little C as he has a small head circumference - they are either too short but have a good snug fit, or long enough but way too loose.

Now a little about this shirt, it was the first time I’d sewn a collar stand. It’s also the first time I’ve sewn cuffs with a fancy slit opening. Maybe it would just be easier to say this was my first collared button down shirt :) The instructions for this pattern were phenomenal, as intricate as all the details were I never got confused or lost. I also really love how the pattern is drafted with all the sizing options, it really allows for a custom fit.

Here Little C is holding a fire truck I made from felt. The fire truck is part of a Quiet Book firehouse set I made a few years ago. It’s the cutest little pattern that I picked up from Stephanie over at Imagine Our Life, and even better the patterns are free! Normally there is a ladder and other accessories on the firetruck but big sis was playing them, and Little C will only sit still for a small amount of time before he has to start moving again - so alas it is what it is.

P.S. I just love this photo - I’m still very much learning how to take good pictures and this one is just so cute, even if I focused on his nose instead of his eyes!
