Bringing Treasures Down from the Attic

I have been anticipating this glorious event for months now.  I have thought about it and dreamed about it.  Finally it was time to take the newborn girl clothes out of the attic.  They have been packed away for 11 years.  Most of my other girl clothes I have given away, but I kept the cutest and smallest outfits that hold so many memories.

There is the warm layette with delicate rosebuds that my mother used to bundle me as a newborn.

There is the pink sweater that I received from a baby shower for my first baby.  I wanted to save it to give to my firstborn girl to dress her firstborn girl.

There are the sweet neutral colored layettes that every one of my babies have worn.

My favorite frilly outfits for a sweet, cuddly girl.

Pretty hats to warm the tiny head with dark hair as soft as silk and a smell that lingers only for a little while and can never be duplicated.

And some recent additions given by grandma that are just too cute to leave out.

There are also the many outfits given by dear friends and family, brand new, just for this little one! Thank you! Thank you!

The true excitement will happen when I am able to post pictures of our new baby girl wearing all of these treasures from the attic.  She is the real treasure!
