I will be saving Mia's coming home outfit, her Christmas dress, her Easter dress, and her 1st Birthday outfit. I'm sure there are others I will keep just because I love them so much. She's got a few outfits that are my absolute favorite, so those will definitely go in a box!

I have their hospital gowns, and their Harley Davidson outfits saved. I plan on making little boxes for each of them with special items inside. I just need to get up the energy and do it.

I have kept certain things, but not everything. A lot of his clothes have been passed down to my nephew who's exactly 6 months younger.

I've kept almost everything but I don't plan on keeping it all, just all the special stuff like her coming home dress and Holiday dresses.

We have saved every article of clothing thus far, except for some of the uni-sex outfits I was sent from family and friends... I put a care package together for my cousin who just had a baby girl last Friday, and sent those outfits to her since she and her husband are not doing well financially right now. Clothes can get expensive, so I sent her those plus formula, bottles, so on and so forth.

One of these days I will have to let go of a lot of those clothes, but I will keep some of my very favorites, and the outfits they came home from the hospital in. I'll give until 2010, just in case we have another baby and I get the third boy I want; if we don't have another baby or a baby on the way by then, I will have to donate and/or sell the rest of those clothes.

It's funny you ask this! I just went through 7 rubbermaid bins FULL of his clothes. I pulled out those I don't "love" and put them in my garage sale pile and kept the rest. I still have 4 bins FULL. And here's the kicker, I'm not having any more kids! So, I suppose at some point I'll get sick of them and I'll sell them at a Mom2Mom sale. But until then, they will sit in my attic.

I have given most of Sydney's clothes to my friend who had twin girls almost exactly a year after Sydney was born. I kept most of my favorite outfits though.

other than the coming home outfit, I have 3 big boxes full of some of her outgrown stuff that I want to keep for the next baby. Even if it is a boy, there is some neutral stuff.

I have saved everything, but we're not done having babies yet!

When our 2nd and probably last is born, I will probably take the clothes to a consignment shop. I will save some special outfits, like the coming home outfit and some other cute ones.
