My little boy is growing up!

After Jack's 5:30 feeding, I couldn't go back to sleep, so I put him in the bed next to Kyle and tried to get some stuff around the house done. There were a lot of his clothes that needed to be put away, so I went to work at that. As I was doing that, I was pulling out clothes that no longer fit him and putting them in storage. Wow. He's 7 weeks old and he has two grocery bags full of clothes that are too short on his long legs or too tight around his tummy. He's way out of the newborn stuff. Most 3M clothes fit him pretty well, as long as there aren't legs. 6M stuff on him looks the way the 3M stuff looked on him when he was just born . . . a little baggy.

We have tons of clothes for him all the way up to 12 mos, but I'm just now realizing they're all summer clothes. So here's what I decided: I'm going to look for 9M winter clothing sold in lots on ebay. I'm also going to purchase one winter clothing item in size 9M or 12M per week in order to lessen the blow of having to buy all of those clothes at once. I think it sounds like a pretty good plan. :)

After I finished putting stuff away, I went into the bedroom and just watched him and his dad sleep next to each other for a little while. I couldn't help but be overwhelmed with gratefulness to God for giving me an amazing husband and a healthy, growing son . . . neither of which I would trade for anything.
