I finally admitted to myself that Clara has nearly grown out of her 0–3 months size clothes. I was so sad about that and have all week been putting off the task of boxing the clothes up and getting out the next size. But now I’m sitting here two-thirds of the way through sorting through and folding the 3–6 months size clothes—some handed down by beloved friends, a few saved from her brothers, some brand new as gifts for Clara, one or two (or, um, several) I couldn’t stop myself from buying. She is snoozing in the bassinet nearby, and, oh good grief, it is taking every single last bit of willpower I have to stop myself from waking her up and changing her clothes three or four times in a row. For the next three months, at least, our little Mei Mei is going to be one stylish chica.
