Nathan is already outgrowing some of his clothes. I don't know if I'm ready for that yet!
I've folded up all of his preemie and 5 lbs clothes and put them aside. So now I'm faced with a dilemma: do I donate the clothes, try to sell them (since they were only worn for a couple of weeks), keep them in case of a miracle (we will not be doing IVF again so any future child will be a miracle), or keep my favourites and have them made into a quilt?
I like the idea of the quilt but I hate the idea of cutting up practically brand new clothing. I guess I was raised in a "waste not, want not" kind of way. How cool would it be to have a crib quilt made out of his clothes for when Nathan has a child of his own? But children's clothing can be expensive so I feel guilty for thinking about it.
So what should I do? I'm really asking (although I may not listen to your advice). Should I:
- Pack up the clothes and keep them, just in case?
- Donate his clothes to charity?
- Sell the clothes?
- Keep my favourites and have a quilt made?
