Another Day Another Diaper Size

Wednesday, January 22, 2014


They grow up so fast. It's the biggest cliche, but it's cliche for a reason. I find myself thinking this all too often with Eli. How is he already standing up?! How did he outgrow this already?! I thought of these things as I went to the store just to get him some size 4 diapers. (Size 4! That should be illegal! He's not even 9 months yet!) Eli sat in the cart happily babbling and swinging his legs around as I weaved through the Target baby isles to get a giant box of the next size up. The days are flying by me and I just do my best to take it all in. I love getting to spend all day with this little guy. Even if some days are tiring or frustrating. At the end of the day I find myself laying in bed all cozied up in the covers nursing Eli, and I like to think that he will always be my baby boy, no matter how grown up he gets.

…and I promise to never tell his future girlfriends how much I kissed him on the lips ;)

  6. I kept nodding to everything you have written in this post!!! Every few weeks I keep away clothes that Alexander has outgrown, thinking how quickly he has grown. And yes, he'll always always be my baby boy too. And I have stolen my baby's first kiss too!!!! So many times, I've kissed him on the lips....ah sweet love!

  7. I know! My Eli is about to outgrow his size 2 diapers and it is blowing my mind too! And, you're right, this age is so great.

  8. Hello friend from IG! So good to see you here! I know exactly what you mean–just celebrated Elspeth's first year and seemed amazed by it. It's slow and fast all at once–tricks the mind a little, I suppose.
    Lots of love to you and your family!

  9. So beautiful! Why didn't I do photos like this?! Kicking myself in the ass. My kid is 21 months old now, and she's a wiggly, squirmy one. I should attempt it anyways. And yikes, size 4 already? Mine is in size 4. That just means he's healthy and there's more chub to love, right?
