making room for baby girl



It's funny how things change over time. Things that you swear you wouldn't ever change, end up happening anyway.

I remember when we were pregnant with Chloe and I was vainly hoping we could skip that whole first-parent mania and hyper-awareness that afflicts all new parents. Why couldn't we just be chill? We don't have to freak out over every little thing. Right?

Well, as it turns out, you really can't help it. As a new parent you are learning the ropes and taking care of a tiny person that you've never had to be responsible for before.




It's also true that the more kids you add into the mix, the more relaxed you become. The strict rules you once setup are frequently relaxed quite a bit (hello don't eat anything off the floor). Sometimes you learn things (hello milk drinking on the couch) that you'll never allow to happen again.




I also remember organizing and decorating babies rooms with a real zealousness. This time around we have to move the two older girls in together and then turn Elinor's room back into a baby/nursery room. I don't think I'll be painting since we just finished painting it a neutral color. Instead, I am contemplating painting the dresser a bright yellow color to liven up the space a little bit. My inspiration being the image at the top of the post from Love Taza. I also will most likely be recycling art from both Chloe's and Elinor's baby rooms.

I think we've reached a point that we are those chill parents of multiple kids that don't have to freak out about every detail and can really enjoy the baby phase this time around. This might be wishful thinking, but I think Oprah would approve of this positive energy I'm putting out into the world.
