A big thank you to Tanit-Isis and Anonymous! I think I fixed that pesky front crotch curve.
Savvy Sewer Salon over at Sawyer Brook Fabrics. Jennifer Stern had hosted a couple of sew alongs and addressed several fit issues, including this one (You'll find that thread here.). When the wee one went down for a nap, I decided to give it a try. It worked! And it only took about a 1/8 inch change to totally change the fit of these pants.
Thank you both for commenting and getting my mind working!!
