Logistically speaking, since we have a boy and a girl - the bins are being set up by gender and by size for some future babies (NOT YET, grandmas!) or to distribute as handmedowns to our younger cousins (can't wait to meet you, Lainey!) or our younger best friends.
We are blessed with older cousins and best friends too - which has helped contribute to our massive collection of kids' clothes. We almost will never have to buy any other kids another piece of clothing through 5 years old. I was holding up size 5T future clothes for Grey and Gem while packing them up and thinking, "Sheesh, I can't even imagine their little bodies being big enough to fit this shirt!"
After the future clothes, I've since moved onto the smaller clothes (leaving the current/next clothes for last) and I feel quite wistful. I distinctly remember looking at some of the tiny clothes thinking, "I can't wait until they're big enough to wear this!" ...and that time has already come and gone.
come and gone.
Like this shirt that I thought made him look like a little man (9mo) and looking at it now, he seems impossibly small.
and this summer romper for Gemmi girl (size 3-6mo) and that hat! Oh, that hat that she wore almost every day last summer.

Only a Mum would get choked up over organizing kids' clothes bins, eh?
....come and gone.
Sweet babies, slow down, my darlings.
you're breaking your mumma's heart.
