Dilemma of the Week

Mila is now 1 month old. She has officially outgrown her newborn and 0-3 month clothes. She is also too big for her newborn diapers. The changes have been so gradual that I never noticed her growth - until I compared her to my friend Clarissa's 1 week old baby. Mila was so big!

So now I am confronted with the following decision: donate the baby clothes or save them in the event that we choose to have a third child.

Thing is, I don't know for sure we'll have a third. It would be horribly annoying to save all these girl AND boy clothes for another few years only to make the decision not to have another baby. The soonest we'd have another is when Aiden goes to Kindergarden. Our hope is to move to another house in a better school district before then. Do we want to pack, store, move and, again, store all these baby clothes? Not really. But if it will save us some money, it might be worth it.

Any opinions put there?

Maybe you could go through it and only save your favorite outfits and donate the rest. You can also put the baby clothes on craigslist. I haad planned to keep all my baby clothes, but we moved so much it was hard to keep moving stuff. Also, another idea, is to keep the onesies, and favortie shirts...if you have another baby, then you will have them, if not, you can use all the shirts to make a quilt! Dana's mom did this for her with all her jr. high, high school, and college t-shirts, when she graduated pharmacy school! It was pretty awesome!
