I get so many wonderful comments and compliments about Lily’s clothes, (thank you all so much) that I wanted to spend a little time talking about them.
I’d say that 99% of all of Lily’s clothes were either from my baby shower or hand-me-downs. Besides my baby monitor, a few blankets and odds and ends all I got for my shower were baby clothes. It was amazing. My co-workers and family went crazy buying cute little girl clothes. One of my ex co-workers whom we refer to as Grandma Starr bought cute baby girl clothes before we knew Lily was a girl and still buys her stuff.
As for the hand-me-downs, they came from all over the place. I worked at a credit union and if you’ve ever been a credit union member then you understand the close community that it can provide. I got bags and bags of baby clothes, a baby bath tub, swing and bouncer seat from one member alone; it was gggrrrate. One of the ladies Waldo worked with had just had a baby and gave us probably 4 big rubbermaid tubs of clothes. And my little (hahaha she’ll be 30 soon, how does that happen?) sister has a baby girl about 4 months older then Lil so she sends a lot of hand-me-downs too.
Here are some of the great shower gifts:
I could go on and on and I’m sure some of you feel that I already have gone too far. As you can see I’m using this as an excuse to reminisce.
As for that other 1% of clothes in Lily’s closet I have bought new; one dress and one onesie and a few things at a yard sale. We are so thankful for the wonderful generous gifts that we’ve received.
I need to wrap this craziness up so I can go to bed.
But one last thing that I meant to post a couple of months ago.
One day Waldo got home from work and there was a bag from the grocery store hanging off the door knob. When we opened it there were two baby outfits in it with no note. One was a larger size of this
Someone please explain to me how two people thought my daughter would want to look like Fran Dresher?
