ok, so I saved all my daughter's clothes in big tubs in our attic for our #2.... and we found out that our baby #2 is a boy! Which is great, but I was also kinda hoping that we'd have a girl just so I could revisit all my daughter's clothes before we really have to get rid of it. So since it's a boy, I've been going through all her stuff and picking out the very little that is gender neutral. But the rest, well, I am really having a hard time parting with. (We aren't planning on a #3, so there really isn't a reason to keep it). So I guess I'm just posting for some support and ideas... I have toyed with the idea of making a quilt from some of her baby clothes... but I wonder if that would just keep things hanging around longer. I also feel like I want to keep a few things, some special dresses, some things people handmade for her, just to keep... But it would probably just sit in the attic. Maybe it's okay to hang on to some of it for a while, and then get rid of it later when I've convinced myself that I'm really not going to look at it again, and that she really won't want it when she moves out?
I am such a sentimental sop!
