sooo big....

i know my kids grow really fast, but seriously, sofie is the baby, and well, i just don't deal as well with that fact any more.

last week, i had to do the unthinkable...yes...at 18 months and 19 pounds...
she had to change from her infant seat to a baby seat...she wasn't fitting anymore.

sof was 3 lbs when we brought her home from the NICU...and so stinking tiny. i was certain she would start high school in this seat.

we had to roll roll burb cloths {yes, that's what they are...not towels} to just get her secure in the seat.
we were so worried because she was so fragile and small and well, 3 lbs!!!!
now, she's just got the whole, "i am way bigger than this seat, mom" look going on.

and to prove her independence, which she always does, there's one last fling to momma showing how big she really is...check out that greasy grin!

i'm hanging out at wordful wednesdays, ww today...come join the fun.

STOP GROWING! That's what I tell Yaya all the time. My mom even threatens to put a rock on top of her head so she can't grow. LOL Yaya responds so seriously, "But momma or nanna, I have to grow and get big like you!"

Yaya said...

Awwww! Big girl! Love that dress!

That's always a sad moment in my house, too....STOP GROWING I always tell El, but she just gets mad at me, telling me she wants a real phone for her 5th birthday. Sigh.

I totally relate to having difficulty with the baby growing. Our baby of the family is now 4. :(

Your little one is adorable!

Elizabeth said...

She is so precious and petite. I love it! Mine were always mooses! Is that a word?

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

She is so "owning" that car seat! Meaning, she is officially a big girl and ready to move on to bigger and better car seats!

I just love her sweet smiles.

Ohmagosh, she is just the cutest thing evah!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All your kids are really. But man........

Paige said...

I brought my Lily home at 3 pounds as well and I remember rolling up all those burp cloths and she would still swish around in that big ol' carseat! Oh and I so remember when she grew out of the carrier and into a carseat and now she is in a booster and I still can't belive it!

Carrie said...

WOH! Midget moved out of her carseat at 9 months because she was too tall! Her legs were sticking out of the seat about a foot, so we figured we'd better get her in a bigger seat.

Your little peanut is so tiny! And GORGEOUS!!

Michelle said...

oh my goodness she was so tiny!! Look how much she's grown! Gotta love that smile :)

Megan said...

Awww, so bittersweet! I can't believe she was only 3 pounds! Crazy!!!
