I have not been sad selling off the baby gear (just happy to have it out of here!), but as I go through the girls' clothes it is pretty sad! I've debated saving a bunch for a quilt later on, but decided I was unlikely to ever get around to making one. I did set aside a handful of things for each girl to keep in a hope chest, but in general I have sooooooo many clothes and I loved them all!!! So I ended up deciding that really I just needed pictures of everything to reminisce hehe...and so I've been taking pictures of stuff before I bag it up for sale, and I want to do something fun with the pictures at a later date.
Tonight though I thought maybe I'd quick look back and find a few pictures of the girls wearing some of the clothes...fun right? haha.
The biggest batch of clothing I've sold so far is 3 garbage bags full of size 6-12 month fall/winter stuff to a friend of mine from grad school, who has a daughter almost exactly 1 year younger than Brielle. Worked out great!
Look at all that clothing goodness! :-)
And now for some pictures of Raya and Brielle when they wore just a few of those outfits---ah, the memories
First Miss Raya (she was such a chunk that she wore this stuff at a younger age!):
|I had almost forgotten what Raya's pacis looked like! I'm so used to Brielle's now haha|
So yeah, in the end I decided it's sort of silly for me to be sad about selling off the girls' clothes. Because frankly I think every single outfit has been documented in photos on the blog, plus I've got lots of money now to turn around and buy the girls clothes for the next season, so it's win win! I will miss being able to shop in the teeny tiny section, but the big girl section is so stinkin' fun too---and Miss Raya still has no idea that some kids actually get to choose what they wear, so I'm still having fun picking out all her clothes hehe.
That's all I've got for tonight---been busy busy today and Brielle is still sick and grumpy--ugh!
