I have one tote left of baby clothes. I finally weeded out my collection because I probably had enough clothes to clothe a baby for years without buying anything.
But I am just down to my best and favorite baby closes, the ones that mean something to me. My children keep asking me why I have that tote and how long and I going to hang on to it. Sometimes I think, forever!
As for colors, well, I have not dressed my children in proper colors since my son was born (#3). He wore a little bit of #1's & #2's 'girly' colors. But not much because even in pink, he looked too 'boyish'!
Then #4 came around and being a girl, she ended up with tons of blue clothes left over from #3. We were just looking at pictures of Hannah and in so many of them she is wearing blues!
But we have gotten rid of everything else baby. Finally let go of the bouncer than I bought for #4 and the car seat that I had for #1-#7, lost the boosters that I had for #3-#6 in the van fire, gave away the play pen (that was rarely used) that I had for #4-6 and the swing (that all my children loved) that I had from #2-7 and the highchair that was given to #1 by my Hubby's grandmother when we visited.
So basically, if we do have another baby, all I have is a since tote of clothes. It was kinda sad to see all the history and memories slip away as one by one the items that each of my children used were gone. But that's OK. Children grow up. Way too fast, I think, but it happens. And things are just never the same.
Flapjack, congrats on the boy! They can be wonderful. I know my three are.
And such bundles of energy compared to my girls. I can understand why God blessed me with two girl cushions and then alternately boy, girl, boy, girl, boy.
That way I would not be too shocked by a jolt of too much energy in one setting!
