Nesting, Anth Style

Some girls nest by cleaning. My house should be so lucky. I nest by obsessively but lovingly going through baby clothes again and again. Deena dropped by my house Friday with two big boxes full of baby boy clothes! I dragged Dh to Target on Saturday morning to buy plastic totes and Saturday evening I went through all the baby boy clothes I have amassed over the past few months. It added up to quite a bit, since in addition to Deena's generous gift, I have been scouring the clearance racks and my mom sent a box last month full of super deals she scored at her Target. I oohed and aahed to myself, occasionally holding up particularly cute items and forcing Dh to make some sort of response. For some reason, he was more interested in Terminator 2. There's no accounting for taste.

all of henry's baby clothes are out with his great grandparents...but we plan to go through them soon. i'd be happy to box up some stuff to send your way, if you'd like? shoot me an email (houseofh [at] gmail [dot] com) and let me know if there are things you still need or a particular size you need and i'll keep my eyes out...

I love looking at baby clothes. I will have a ton to go through when when we have another. If we have a little boy I'll be getting rid of a fortune's worth of baby girl clothing. I always notice how little most stores have in the way of baby boy clothes. The girl stuff outnumbers boy stuff 10 to 1.

Oh my gosh, I nested by going through clothes, too. Actually, I still do that. At least once a month,I go through Ellie's drawers and weed out the old and rearrange the new. Then I go through boxes of clothes given to us by cousins to see if she can fit into any. Ooh, I love little clothes.

I, too, love the little clothes. There is nothing sweeter than a teeny tiny flannel shirt, in my opinion. Baby clothes are much cuter than Arnold Schwarzeneggar, by a mile.

Going through the clothes is just a reminder that you are going through all of this torture for a reason. (A very good reason!)
