Stubborn or Stupid... or Both?

Garrett is a chub. I love it, but boy oh boy is he getting big!

He's a little more than 3 months old and he's already growing out of his size 2 diapers. I think he is at least. Based on the scale, he still should have 2-3 more pounds left to stay within the weight limit of the size 2s, but (and I'm not exaggerating here) he wakes up with his entire belly soaked after every nap, and probably every other time he's nursing he'll blow out the back of his diaper. He's a hot mess.

The problem is that we still have 2/3 of a box of size 2s left that I don't want to waste... and I'm not sure I want to admit that my baby is already big enough for size 3s. I don't mean 'admit' in an 'I'm embarrassed that he's so big kind of way' but more in an 'I'm in denial that he's growing so fast kind of way.'

I know that I should just bless someone else with 100+ diapers and move on to the size 3s, saving myself a lot of sheet changing and loads of laundry, but I feel stubborn about the fact that my baby is growing up so fast.

Can anyone out there relate to me in not wanting to admit that their baby is hitting (yet another!) milestone? I'm in denial... and need to go change the crib sheets!

I can totally relate... Esther is growing out of her 0-3 month clothes at 7 weeks of age, and I just put this onesie on her that is super stretched from her shoulders to her diaper. How can she have gotten so big? I guess it's time to move on and be grateful that she's growing!

My baby is 8 months old on Monday and I can't even say that outloud!! He's crawling, pulling up, eating table foods- he's just growing too quickly for me!! I can TOTALLY relate!

I know, it's kind of sad:(

But look on the bright side. At least he and Jake will be the same size now and when you come over to my house you won't have to pack diapers for Garrett!
