into the grey

there were two times that i stopped saving caroline's old clothes and gear. the first being when she was about 1 and we were certain she would be our only princess. we were completely happy as our little family of three. so, we bagged up everything she had outgrown and passed it on to both family and friends. also known as mistake number one.

when caroline was 3, we started trying for a 2nd. we hit the point where we realized, unfortunately, we weren't able to have anymore children due to my pcos. we thought, again, that we were done and gave away lots of great things. now known as mistake number two.

low and behold, then comes hads. she does things her way and on her time. we see that daily.

i am thankful, though, that a few of the things that we gave to my SIL were able to come back to us. pretty impressive considering that is two more girls it had to make it through before finding it's way back to us. now it makes me smile every time i get to see hadley wear something that her big sister, caroline, once wore. something so nostalgic and amazing about it. do you agree? i think you will when you see these pics of the girls in the same cute, grey sweatshirt and the same brown shoes.

It’s funny how a jacket, a pair of shoes, or even a picture of Bodi, can bring back wonderful memories. It won’t be long until we see pictures of Caroline in clothes that used to be Hadley’s.
