baby clothes.

lylah's newborn clothes, grayson's closet

because lylah's nook has minimal storage, her clothes are sort of spread around the house in pockets of available space. above is her newborn (read: teensy) clothing collection, which, based on today's doctor's appointment, she may or may not be able to wear for longer than 10 minutes. (doctor estimates she weighs around 8.5 pounds right now!) either way, they are super sweet and tiny.

then her 0-3 month and 3 month clothes are in one of the drawers in ellie's dresser. ellie has a ton of closet space plus her dresser, and her clothes don't use anywhere near all of the space. also, the girls will eventually share a room so it made sense to store some of lylah's clothes in that dresser.

a few of lylah's things were her sister's, but they have birthdays in opposite seasons so there's not much. the rest has been carefully curated over the past few months from resale shops, consignment sales, thrift stores and various other shopping stops. she also has several things that were gifts from family and friends.

there's a second drawer in ellie's dresser that holds summery clothes in 3-6 months, which we may or may not get to before it gets cooler, depending on how big a girl she is. the far right pile are cooler weather items in larger sizes.

she doesn't have nearly the quantity of clothing that ellie (or even grayson) had, but i kind of like it that way. i adore all of it, and it's much less overwhelming now and come laundry time.

yay for playing in sweet baby girl clothes!

Do you think Chris would mind if I came over and put Jack in one of those darling dresses for just one minute?
