Growth Spurts and Clothes

Okay, I'm back to blogging. HJ went back to work for good today so I have an even tougher time balancing baby, housework, and "fun" things like blogging... but I'll try. :-) I always wonder how people find the time to do things... I'm so envious of people who can find the time to craft, sew, blog, and do all sorts of creative things I'm interested in trying but can't find the time to do.  I feel overwhelmed by the amount of things on my to-do list and I'm not even at work right now!   (Yes, Hailey, my to-do list software that I use is made by google... :-) ) Well, yesterday, HJ and I decided to make goals for ourselves, and one of my goals is to make time for fun things.  We'll see if I follow through with it.  I think I just have to make time!  Not as easy as I say:

Speaking of time, BJ makes 7 weeks tomorrow and I have to wonder:  Where did the time go?  I feel like I just had him but he's already almost two months old.  And he keeps growing and growing.  He was such a cranky pants yesterday and I think the reason is because he had a growth spurt that is supposed to come at 6 weeks. (According to the books, there are growth spurts at 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months.)  It didn't help that it was extremely hot, either, but that's another story. So anyway, the bad thing about growth spurts is that BJ is outgrowing his clothes like crazy.  A few weeks ago, he outgrew his newborn pajamas and now, he fits his 3 month pajamas just right! It feels like one more inch of growth and BJ will outgrow his 0-3 month clothes. Here's BJ's most recent picture:

Much bigger than the newborn pictures, right?  The only thing that makes me sad about BJ outgrowing his clothes is that I'm so frugal when it comes to clothing. HJ and I will wear out our clothes before throwing it away (or donating it).  BJ's clothes, however, are like brand new.  I just think it's such a waste... but it's okay.  Believe me, I am extremely thankful that BJ is a growing boy! :-D


  1. yea, don't worry about them growing out of the clothes so quickly...caleb barely fit in newborn clothes even when he was born because he was such a monster! just keep them and i'm sure there'll be friends you can pass them on to later. we've barely had to buy any clothes for the two because of gifts and hand me downs!

  2. ASKC - That's true! a lot of our clothes were gifts too. And they could also come in handy if you (or I) decide to have more kids.. :-P But it still makes me sad b/c some of the onesies are so cute that I wish he could still wear them! haha.

  3. Growth spurts at 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months, huh. Is there anything in those books about a 30 year growth spurt? I sure would like to be a few inches taller.

    Heard about your blog from my Honey. Seems like you've been keeping yourself busy. Say hi to Shaggy and Special Agent for me.
