Up to Our Ears in Clothes

This afternoon, a big box of baby clothes arrived via UPS from Jerry's mom. Apparently, she's been busy buying up the stock of baby girl clothes in the greater Twin Cities area: So, Jerry and I decided that it was time to break out all the clothes we've received so far and organize them by size. What a task! Here I am holding up one of the onesies I like: We have about ten of these in different colors, patterns and sizes. They're onesies, but they look like little dresses.
Nice that my bra strap is showing, huh? I'm classy like that.
And here's Jerry with one of his favorite outfits: Jerry is very fond of anything animals, but he seems to have a soft spot for ducks.
And here's a last shot of all the clothes sorting that we were doing: Somewhere beneath those piles, this laptop was buried.
So, after doing all the sorting, I think we're actually pretty close to set on clothes for at least the first few months (although, it's so difficult to predict how fast she'll grow, so it's tough to know exactly how much of any one size we'll need). And, I think Norah will be better dressed than I!

I am fairly confident that your child has more clothing than I do.... too cute though!

Run Sarah said...

Wow, that is a lot of clothing! Onesies are so convenient when they're little, too :)

Slow Poke said...

Any clothing like that in 'miniature' is automatically cute!

Liz said...

Wow, you weren't kidding with the clothing...just remember to try to wear it all...I got in the habit of just putting on what was on top of the laundry basket...they had clothes that they never got to wear!

Those oneies are prefect for FL! :)

My girls are always better dressed than myself!

Ooooh, looks like fun even if it's work too. Jerry will be seeing pink in his sleep! Pink ducks!

Erin said...

You have no need to wash. Just wear them and throw them out.

Jamoosh said...

OK - someone's got to say it. Jerry has this "heh heh heh" look on his face. Not sure what it menas, but...

Kristen said...

ooooh baby clothes are soooo cute!! I can see how easily it would be to get so many!

It will be so fun to dress Nora in all of them.

Xenia said...

Dang! Your child has more clothes than me. And she's not even born yet. WTH! :)

J~Mom said...

Very nice, Jerry always struck me a ducks kinda guy!

Running Jen said...

Love those dress onesies, aren't they adorable? My daughter had a bunch of them, they really are great for FL. Love the clothes, you will have so much fun dressing her in all of them!

Dang, what a score! Boys and babies (or baby stuff) make my heart positively melt. :o)

MCM Mama said...

Ooh, I love little girl clothes. Back when all my friends were having kids, i'd go totally overboard buying stuff if I knew they were having girls.

Cute stuff!

I guess I'll hold back on the Rylee hand-me-downs, you looked pretty well stocked! :)

D10 said...

You do have a lot of clothes!! She is going to be the best dressed baby, for sure.

Marlene said...

It's a see of adorable baby clothes!

MN Mom said...

We had the same thing..for Rylee..so many clothes. I had garaged saled...and at all four showers...lots of clothes. My John laughed because Rylee wasn't even here yet and she had as many clothes as her mom.
Norah is on her way...

P.O.M. said...

HOly moly. Norah will be the best dressed gal in all of FL. Keeping them organized in size bins is sooooooo helpful and smart. Then as she grows out of them, you keep them for baby #2 (or give them away to friends who need them).

aron said...
