Movin’ Up!

Tonight Wes wore his first-ever 3 month size outfit. I was looking at his unworn 3 month clothes hanging in the closet and thinking how big they look next to his newborn and 0-3 month clothes. But then I took a gander at the 3 month tags, and they say they fit babies up to 24 inches and 12.5 lbs. (!) I’m pretty sure Wes is right around there, somewhere. So I quickly pulled one out and put it on him to see if it was too late. Of course it’s not; I mean, even though the kid is five months old, he can still fit in newborn clothes (although they’re getting snug), and his 0-3 month clothes are still plenty loose.

Here’s a picture of Wes taken October 11 when he was a whopping four weeks old. He’s wearing a preemie outift on the left.


Here he is today, 22 weeks old, in the same outfit from the above photo, size 3 months. Look how he’s grown!

    Shannon – I love Wes! Seriously, every time I look at your blog he just brings a smile to my face. What a joy – I can just feel by looking at him he has such a tender, sweet spirit. What an angel! He seems to be doing great, and growing and developing and everything, it is fun to watch them grow!

    I love that smile! SOoooooo cute. Baby clothes are so crazy- the sizes are not all the same from brand to brand. It is so annoying- K can wear some newborn clothes still, and then she has a few 3-6 mo. she can wear. What is up with that??

    that smile is just adorable! I looooove looking at the picture of him in his 3-month-old outfit. can’t believe how much he’s growing. too bad about the disability thing, though….that sounds messed up.
