Handmedowns

Three ways to ensure that child #2 doesn't wear the clothing of child #1:

1. Have a girl first and then a boy.
2. Give birth to one in November and one in May.
3. Have one with a long torso and one with long legs.

Sigh. And I just have ohsomany nice things I wanted to use again.

Interesting how that worked... I can imagine that you had Abby's clothes neatly organized by size all ready for the next one... at least that's kind of how I'm organizing for Gabriel's follower - I guess we could always get a girl born in autumn!

I had two girls and often the seasons were off sync, especially at the beginning. Then Hannah started like wearing dresses too big for her, so she could wear everything, but by then they start choosing what they like and often refuse to wear 80% of what you have.

Noah has so many clothes (all hand-me-downs) that I get sad he only has a chance to wear something a few times each before outgrowing - especially the 0-3 and 3-6 sizes. Baby clothes are sad that way. You never get to hold on to that size long enough. You just can't escape the melancholy whatever you end up with.

Oh, the plague of seasonal clothing! With Sydney born in May, and Jules born in December, it's ridiculous how many cute outfits go unworn. I have a box of summer dresses that Jules is now big enough to wear, just as we are gearing up for winter clothes. Meh.
