Treasures Found

Last week I was in the storage room getting the boxes for the Halloween decorations so I could get everything put away.  I came across a few tupperware buckets containing baby clothes.  I pulled the three buckets out of the storage room and brought them up to the living room so I could examine what was inside.  What I found were clothes that ranged from 6 months to 24 months.  I was excited to see some of my favorite outfits that the boys once wore.  I also found lots of cute clothes that this new baby could wear.  All the others were bagged up and are ready to be dropped off at DI.  I was expecting to buy all new clothes for this little one but it was a nice surprise to find some clothes that will still work.  I figured if I only have to buy for the first few months then I will be saving lots of money.

Yesterday was the first day of Day Light Savings.  I have been so excited to have that extra hour to sleep in but for whatever reason I couldn't sleep in yesterday.  So, I did some cleaning and then decided while I was feeling up to it I would get the Christmas Tree set up.  Besides, I needed to clear room in the storage room for Larry to move his boxes into the storage room. (The man cave needs to be finished so we can then start on the babies room)  Anyway, while I was pulling the Christmas Tree out I noticed yet another tupperware bucket.  This one was marked "3-6 months".  I made a mental note that the bucket was there, continued carrying the tree upstairs and set it up.  Tonight I decided to get the bucket out of the storage room and go through it.  Sure enough, it was full of 0-6 month clothing...onesies, jammies, bibs, shoes, hats, shorts, pants, sweaters, etc.  Logan had fun with me going through the bucket.  He kept trying on all the hats and bibs.  It was really cute listening to his little comments.  I have both boys knit hats that they wore in the hospital.  I put one over my fist to show him how small his little head once was and he said, "that hat looks really cute on your hand like that."  Anyway, after spending lots of time on the internet, deciding that baby clothes are priced way too high for the amount of fabric used, carefully spending money on the REALLY cute "sale" clothes, I've discovered I won't have to spend as much as I originally thought on newborn clothes.  Turns out my storage room contained buckets full of treasures.

 Yep, I found this onesie...
...and this sailors outfit...
...and even this swaddle blanket (even if it is pink)
Maybe I like the clothes so much because I just recall how adorable my Logan looked in them.
