bitterSWEET

I've been putting off sorting through Abigail's outgrown baby clothes.  I had the time this week, and I now know why I was postponing it - it feels so final to go through all her things and put them away. Abigail is probably our last.  A lot of the clothes were tiny things I made her while I was pregnant and on bedrest, or while waiting for her to come home from the hospital.  It's hard to decide what to do with all of those, especially.

In the middle of it, as I was feeling a bit sad, my sweet husband had a good idea.

For her first birthday we gave Abigail a Bitty Baby doll.



 

And Bitty is very close to Abigail's birth size! Abigail was 4lbs 8oz so teeny tiny.

One day old here:



 

This was the coming home outfit I made for her during the wait to take her home from the hospital.



 

One week in one of her teeny preemie gowns:



 

And one of the tiny diapers a friend made for her:



 

I'm so happy all these little things can be loved some more!

  1. What a great idea!!! I know how you felt. I have saved some of the special outfits (like the top and headband you made) of Kahlan's. I don't know what I'll do with them, but I can't let them go!
