When Rowan was just 2 weeks old one of my best friends, Sarah, came to visit from Colorado and brought the sweetest gifts. Not only was there a pile of pretty clothes but they were her clothes from when she was a baby. I carefully tucked them away, for fear that they would get ruined among all her other rotating outfits, until the day she'd fit into them. I took them out of hiding recently and snapped some pictures of Rowan wearing two of her old baby shirts. They're so adorable in themselves, but then to imagine a sweet little baby Sarah in these over 20 years ago really tugs at the ol' heartstrings. I can't wait to pass these back on to her when she has a little girl of her own and she can show her these pictures of when Rowan was filling her clothes up with love and happy memories for her.
Hopefully we'll live a lot closer to each other when that day comes and they can become best friends like their mama's and make those memories together.
