From newborn to big boy in one day.

Trace is outgrowing his 0-3 month clothes. I should have expected it, the kid weighs 14 pounds! I thought I would be sad putting away the tiny stuff, considering I will never have 0-3 month clothes in this house again. I am not. AT ALL. I am thrilled to wash it all one last time and pack it in a nice tote for my friend who's baby boy arrives at the end of March.

If the clothes wasn't enough to remind me he's growing up...

Trace slept from 10:30 until 8:00 this morning. He woke up at 5 and fussed some but by the time I got up, went to the bathroom and got to his nursery, he was BACK TO SLEEP. I crept so quietly back to my room and then not a peep until 7! At 7, he started fussing and moving around some, but I let him stay in his crib until he was unhappy. I like him to get used to being in his crib on his own. It helps with our nap struggles. (Ugh.) He didn't cry until after 8:00!!!! He must have dozed off, I'm not sure because I was dozing off watching the Today Show myself. :) HALLELUJAH!! I don't expect this behavior every night for a while, but it gives me hope. Soy Formula has given me back our happy baby!

And one more step towards big boyhood...we switched to fast nipples today. When Rory switched, it took her a while to get the hang of the flow. Lots of spitting up and gagging occurred. Trace just looked up at me around his bottle and sucked the whole thing down, not one problem.

Goooooooodbye, newborn! Hellllooooo big boy! :)
