not a newborn

Really, is there much sweeter than footie jammies?
Jayson and I both melt at the sight of them. 

I packed up Embers newborn clothes and gave away the last of her 
newborn diapers. 
Is my baby not a newborn anymore.

she is not.

I remember with Ty packing up every stage was hard for me.
When I packed up newborns I bawled and bawled thinking my little man
was never going to wear these clothes again.

I thought I had prepared myself for packing up Embers things.
but as I folded her tiny clothes up I got 
more and more emotional.
When I got to her outfit she came home in....
thats when I lost it. 

I remembered the feeling I had when dressing her for the first time.
The moment I saw her in her first bow.

I thought about the way I use to have to cradle her so gently.
The way she could barley open her eyes. 

My baby is still a baby.
She is still so tiny.
but she is no longer my newborn.

  "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be."

My baby will always be my baby.


  1. Oh my gosh, I love this! I've been procrastinating packing Mila's newborn clothes. It just seems way to emotional for me. :(


  2. Being a mumma is so bittersweet sometimes. It's so lovely watching them change and grow but at the same time it all happens to fast. I know I always feel emotional with each new stage because I keep thinking that means its the end of another era in some way.
    But like you say, she'll always be your baby, as will Ty. X

  3. This is so precious! I had those same feelings and then again had them last night visiting our friends that have a two month old. Feetie jammies and all I wanted another baby! :)

    Please come link this post to Sunday's Raising Imperfection Link Party! It's too good not to share! :)


  4. I love this too. I kept both of my babies coming home outfits in a little box that I hope to put in shadowboxes one day. I just couldn't bear to pass them on. I sent all of Ryan's newborn clothes to my sister. It was easier knowing that they "would live on". haha! silly I know.

  5. big hugs to you! when i have trouble putting away clothes my sweet daughter has grown out of, i just remind myself how lucky i am to be alive and here with her to watch her grow. :)


  6. She's so sweet. They just grow too fast!
