Is the stuff no one told me....
Had to put away baby clothes today.
Sadie is barely squeezing into most of her 3-6 month clothes, so it's time to wash and put away (forever???). It's always sad to put her clothes away. Always.
You hold up little onesies and sleepers and think "God, she just started wearing these a few weeks ago."
And here we are, at the end of July and I think where did the time go?
When I was pregnant it was a never-ending saga. I felt like I was pregnant for two years. Now, five months has gone by in an instant and thinking about it always makes me a little sad.
Some of her clothes I couldn't bear to put away. I always keep out one of her outfits from the NICU just to remind me of how lucky we are. She always wore one of three shirts. We tried to bring our own clothes from home for her, but they would have had to cut holes into everything for her to wear them. Poor thing wore the same darn clothes constantly! Maybe that's why it's so sad to pack up the old and start with the new.
Then my mind wanders into that part of the brain that ponders the thought of whether or not I'll ever open these boxes again. Will we have another baby? Another girl? A boy?!??! Who knows...but the best part about all of it is not knowing. Someday we'll have another baby - and I'm sure i'll be writing another sappy, sad blog like this. Sigh....
