The Mister's Closet

For the third time since Max's birth, I found it necessary to organize his closet and make sure it only includes clothes that fit. First, he graduated from 0-3 to 3-6. Then, the little guy could barely squeeze into his 3-6 wardrobe so I moved him to 6-12. Now, at not even 10 months of age, I am already weeding out onesies that won't button and pants that are way too short, and replacing his 6-12 clothes with a 12-18 wardrobe.

As much as I like to shop [the boy always looks dapper, doesn't he?], I find days like today a bit bittersweet. I will admit it, tears have rolled down my cheeks every time I put clothes away in a bin for storage.  

Max is growing up so fast. He is the most precious and sweetest thing I have ever known, and he is growing up. I know this is a good thing, but it is a bit of a tearjerker to tuck those sweet baby boy clothes in a bin.

I am already praying that I get to pull them out again, one day soon. Seriously. The clothes are stinkin' cute. And they do not belong in bins tossed to the side and forgotten. And for that reason, and many, many, many more of course, we need another precious boy so I have an excuse to pull the clothes back out and "ooohhhh and awwww" over our adorable baby boy wardrobe.

Let it be Lord, let it be!

I do the same thing every few months when I go through Colin's drawers/closet. Of course he is wearing 18-24 month stuff at 7 months old! :o)

I'm praying for you Jen that God brings another precious little one into your family in whatever way he sees fit. Set your heart to his timing.

You're a great Mommy!

I completely understand the feeling. When Landon outgrew his 0-3 month clothes, I was already crying for another one!! It was so sad to put them away.
