All the clothes are washed, dried, and put away. Despite the mountain of pink, I have fallen in love with the little footie pajamas, the teeny tiny shirts, and the zip-up jackets for our smallest people. Even Kevin got all gooey after seeing all this on the line.
I've organized her dresser and gotten everything into their little compartments. A space for the socks, a space for the nighties, a space for the pants. One drawer for newborn-sized clothing, and another for 0-3 months, just in case she doesn't fit into the newborn sizes. (Or in case she grows out of them super fast.)
Everything else is separated by size into bins in her closet, labeled with a gray marker to match the room. 6-9 months, 12 months, 18 months, 24 months/2T, 3T and older. I've gotten a lot of hand-me-downs. Our girl will be well-dressed for at least the first 2 years! I'm just lacking in the 3-6 month department, but we'll make it work.
Last night was a bit overwhelming with piles of clothes on the floor, but now that everything is put away I feel much better. I've picked out 3 choices for her coming-home outfit. Kevin couldn't even pick a favorite, so we'll have to wait and see what we feel like putting on her when the time comes. One of the outfits is newborn sized, and the other is in 0-3 months.
I can't wait to dress this little girl!
