No longer a New Born

It was a sad day for mama Mullen today. This morning I got up to change Aidan and put a new sleeper on him for the day. I chose one of my favorites, his blue puppy dog sleeper. Just as I zipped it up Aidan let out a big stretch. It was then that I noticed that he could not stretch out all the way because there was not enough room in his sleeper. I called Cliff to come look and we both gazed at our growing son in disbelief. Three and a half weeks old and he can no longer wear his new born clothes. He has also moved into a size one of diapers. I thought that Cliff would be sad like I was but he was actually really excited. He is excited for Aidan to enter a new stage of his life, I however want him to stay tiny forever....

On a side note, since we are still in transition of helping Aidan know that he is okay if he is not being held, I had to wear him in his sling as I made cookies tonight. As I put him down, he seemed pretty content so I left him in his sling for a couple of hours. He seemed to like being all scrunched up. Must remind him of his time inside his mama...

Your son is incredibly beautiful! I can't believe he's grown past the newborn clothing, that's completely insane.

I am sorry that he has been wanting to be held so much, but the picture of him in the sling is so so cute!! I can not believe that he is getting so big already!

I just have to say again that this little guy is a beautiful baby. He's so handsome!
Have so much fun with him, wish I could snuggle him.

I remember those days. Just between me and your commenters, there were times when the sling had to come along with me to the restroom, otherwise there was no way I was going without a major disturbance of the peace. TMI I'm sure. :) Love you and Aidan is beautiful!
