Everyone tells me it’s a sad moment when you put away the newborn clothes.
For me? Hell, no. It means two things:
1) She’s gaining weight, something she wasn’t doing her last few weeks in the womb (unbeknownst to us)
2) We are one step closer to seeing her personality on full display.
Newborns? Cute, for sure. But I wanted her here so I could see the marvelous things she’d do growing up. I’m happy that she’s healthy, growing, and emerging from that last fetal period into awareness.
Adios, newborn clothing (donating it to the church down the street).
