This just in...

Harry is fat. Okay not fat, but oh so plumpy.  Over the weekend I went through his clothes to pack away everything that was too small, which turned out to be everything.  So off to the mall to by some pajamas and pants.  Do you want to guess what size we had to by him....12 months!  I couldn't believe it, the shorts and pants are a little long, but it is the only size that would fit over his chunky thighs.  Harry is going to be six months in about two weeks, who would have thought that he would be wearing the clothes Clark did just a few months ago.  He is just the cutest thing around, and growing up way too fast.
Also, we moved Clark to a big boy bed.  We took the frame off our guest bed (that we kept in the boys room) to lower it closer to the ground, so it wouldn't hurt too much if he fell out.  We also let him pick out some new sheets for the bed, which of -course turned out to be a cute   Wall-E set.  We spent all day Saturday setting up, he was so excited and kept jumping on the bed.  We were not looking forward to the sleepless nights ahead, trying to keep him in his bed.  Imagine our surprise and delight when we put him to bed that night...he crawled in all by himself, and stayed in bed ALL night long.  We couldn't take our eyes off the hallway and kept waiting for him to come back out, but he never did.  It must have been a fluke right...nope, he loves his new bed.  Every night he gets in all by himself and stays there, even during nap time I don't have to fight him to lay down and rest.  I am thrilled this was such an easy transition.  I am not naive, I am sure we have plenty of night time battles up ahead...but we are ready.  I can't believe how much he is growing up...

I love chunky babies! And, you are oh so lucky that the transition to the big bed was easy. :)
