I finally got around to packing all of the little clothes that Milo has out grown, his swaddlers and sleep sacks today. I was feeling sad but I did ok until I came to two onsies that said, I love mommy and I love daddy, that we bought before we even got pregnant. At that point I lost right there in the closet. I am sure DH thought I was crazy but I couldn't help it. I was just remembering buying all of that stuff and being so excited about having my baby and how Milo was so tiny and I got sad that my baby is growing up so fast. The sleep sacks especially brought back all of the middle of the midnight changes and how itty bitty he was.
I waited and prayed for him and wanted him so much. I am so overwhelmed at how lucky I am and how fast it's all going by. He is so big now and can do these amazing things now. I can definitely see now how your baby can grow up, go off to college, get married and have babies of their own before you even know what's happened. I can also now see that we bought WAY to many clothes. There were things in there he never even wore or only wore once or twice.
