Michael’s found a good way to reuse those newborn outfits that are too special to give away:
When my daughter was born, my family and friends bought her dozens of beautiful outfits. I didn’t want to get rid of them, but could think of no good reason to keep them either. It finally dawned on me that someday she would be a good age to play with a life-size newborn doll. So I’ve saved them until one Christmas she will receive a great doll with a fantastic wardrobe!
I love this idea. My kids get so excited when I pull out their old baby clothes. Not only do they love the concrete illustration of how small they used to be, I think they also relish seeing us treasure their babyhoods.
