My newborn baby

I always refer to little Izzy as a newborn. He is so small and helpless. But I came to a shocking realization this weekend. My baby isn't a newborn.

On Friday night, Izzy started really bouncing in his jumperoo. He looked like a little frog, jumping back and forth. He was very proud of himself. He would jump a few times and smile happily. On Saturday, we went to Babies R' Us to purchase a few things. I seen lots of little babies - NEWBORN BABIES. They were tiny and sleepy and wrinkly. Izzy looked like a giant compared to those babies. On Sunday, Izzy figured out how to roll from his back to his belly.

Sunday night, I finally came to the realization that Izzy is no longer a newborn. Although I will not miss the newborn phase, I am still shocked at how quickly it passed. Izzy is a strapping 4 month old, who can coo and roll over and shove toys in his mouth and bounce in his jumperoo. Our baby is growing up so fast.

Christy-the picture is priceless. I love those chubby cheeks. I could eat him up and give him so many snuggles.

I STILL keep looking at my kids and thinking... oh my! They're not babies. I think I'm getting old. I think it daily. :)

It's amazing... even knowing how quickly they grow - it's still a surprise!

What a cutie! I love every stage but I will always miss my newborn babies the most. What would the world be like without chubby baby cheeks. All the aunties would have nothing to kiss.

Izzy is also extremely handsome. I want to smell his head, is that weird??!? PS - my newborns are 10 and 5 respectively. WAH!

He's just the cutest little thing!

Ack. I feel the exact same way about my daughter. And I totally remember when we brought our one week old daughter to the well clinic and thought all the other 5 month old babies were huge!
