When we were moving into the new house a week ago we were trying to figure out where all of our clothes would go since there is very limited closet space. B sweetly and naively said "well why doesn't one of us just take the closet in the nursery, I mean it's not like she's going to need it." At this point I laughed and said "Honey!! Trust me. She's going to need it."
Below I present to you the haul of baby clothes that I've been sorting through the last few days. I would say about 90% of them are from Feather Nester, Ouiser, or Feather Nester's mom and about 10% of them are brand new and are things we received as gifts. The clothes span from newborn - 12 months, so it's a year of clothing, but STILL.
Yet another reason why it totally rocks to be one of the last people in your circle to have kids. Not only do you get to email them pretty much every day with every pregnancy and baby question you have (uh... endless thank yous to Feather Nester, Ouiser, & Toddler Tamer), but you get to save all kinds of money by not buying clothes.
Wanna know what else saves money? Having a mom who's a labor and delivery nurse and "borrows" the newborn diapers that Pampers gives out free to all the hospitals. That one might be harder to come by though.
