Miss C is quickly outgrowing her 3-6 month clothes.
While going through her room, I recently found a laundry basket full of her newborn clothes (yes, the house gets that messy.) I don’t know about you, but I have trouble parting with any baby clothes, but the newborn ones are the hardest. I can’t believe she was ever that small. I really can’t believe the boys were ever that small. I want to keep the whole basket of clothes, but how do I justify keeping clutter?
Believe it or not, this doesn’t involve a craft.
We have a few baby dolls from when I was preparing the boys for various younger siblings. I was smart and got 18-20″ dolls. So I’m just going to hang on to all the newborn clothes, and my favorite 0-3 months clothes, and label the box “doll clothes.” When Miss C hits her doll phase (if she ever does) I’ll give her the dolls and the box of her old baby clothes and she can dress her dolls in them. It will be adorable, I’ll love seeing the clothes again, and she will probably prefer “real” clothes to cheapo doll clothes. It’s a win all around. And in the meantime, the boys can put the clothes on their dolls.
Here is Miss C, at 4 months old, cuddling Little A’s dolls (Rose and Violet) who are wearing her old clothes.
Here is a picture of Miss C at 2 days old wearing the sleeper, and at 2 weeks wearing the skirt. I can’t believe how quickly she is growing.
I have a bunch of newborn boy clothes leftover from the boys, too. But Little A’s dolls are both girls right now.
