Well this week I am trying to organize my baby stuff. I have clothes up to a size 5T and as you know my baby is 9 months wearing 6-9 month and still some 3-6 month clothing. I don't have room in her closet to be storing all these clothes. I got some boxes from On Fire (she had some extra from moving) and I am going to put each size in its own box.
I also think it is time to put away some of the infant equipment that she is no longer using i.e. the swing, bounce seat, jumper, boppy, activity gym, etc. I also picked out the little rattles and infant toys that she no longer plays with.
Well she found the pile of toys and wouldn't you know that is what she played with for the next 45 minutes. She hasn't played with those toys for probably over two months. Oh well, they are still getting packed away.
Through this whole process, I am getting a little sad. I know she keeps hitting new milestones (clapping, playing peek-a-boo, sitting up, pulling herself up, and now crawling this weekend - HELP!!!) but this is the first I really had to put things away.
I am thankful that we plan to have at least one more child and I will be getting this stuff out again. I can't imagine how sad I will feel when I know this is it.
I know this is just the beginning of saying "bye-bye" to a phase in her life.
I think the next thing we will say "bye-bye" to is the breast-feeding. Any suggestions?
