Article of Clothing - 15 Day Challenge; Day 3

Tell about an article of clothing you're deeply attached to.

 Toots, as I fondly call my son, Manuel, as he likes to be called, is already 12 and is no longer a baby.  But there isn't a day that goes by without me missing my baby boy.   Every day I wish that I was given more time to be with him during his early years.  It often feels like those years were stolen from me!

Anyway,  I have given away all his other baby clothes except for these three which I intentionally kept as some sort of souvenir from those sweet baby years.  I am deeply attached to them and I do not plan to part with them ever.

I plan to have another baby but I know that my Toots will always enjoy a special part of my heart that nobody else can have....and because of what he and I have been through, we will always have that different kind of bond that I will never have with my future baby.


  1. So sweet! I bet he loves that you've kept them.

  2. I love this! My mom has one of my dresses that she loves and she keeps it in her hope chest. I love it.

  3. That is so sweet. It goes by so fast. I bet he will cherish these. Thanks for sharing.

  4. That's really cool to hang onto those outfits - it's part of his childhood - so sweet.

  5. My mom also kept a few of my baby clothes. I think it's a really sweet thing to do. When she showed me mine recently, it was a special moment for us. :)
