Sooo BIG!!!

Is someone feeding my baby Miracle Grow because he is getting SO BIG!!! While dressing Marcus this morning I decided that instead of pulling and tugging to get the snaps to line up, I should probably try an outfit the next size up. Wow, I forgot how easy it's supposed to be to dress my child, and how much more comfortable he looks now that he's not in a super tight onesie. I can't believe it though, he's not even three months yet and he's wearing size 6-9months! I guess that's what happens when you start out at 9 1/2 pounds! Completely different experience than with Caleb (who started at not even 6 pounds).

Not only is Marcus growing so big, but he's also getting stronger. Even though he's been pretty good at holding his head up since birth, he could only hold it up for a certain amount of time and was still a little wobbly. He has no problem with that now. He's getting pretty close to being able to sit up by himself, and he can hold himself in a standing position by gripping only our hands. He rolled over (from back to belly) for the first time yesterday. His little arm was stuck underneath him, but at least he finally got over and was laying flat on his stomach (he'd been trying to get over that arm for a couple weeks now). He can also scoot himself across the floor all by himself now. He moves very slowly, but nevertheless, inch by inch he moves. The doctor was pretty impressed by his strength when he tried to crawl off the examination table at his last appointment. He's only 2
1/2 months, but I feel like my little baby isn't much of a baby anymore. I know I still have a while, but I feel like in the blink of an eye my boys will be grown up and going on missions and leaving their mommy behind. I guess I should relish in these moments when my kiddies still need me.

What a big guy! I know how you feel. Cora is no longer a tiny thing. I miss my baby baby.

Yes--we have to do a sewing day! I'm all about living it up during August before I have to go back to the real world.
