I know this was
part of the plan and all this means is we're
...but how, much,
stuff, can a baby POSSIBLY need. Again, this is
why we have been getting rid of our stuff and "making
room for baby", but I look at her room and...
seriously? She owns more clothing than I do. Now.
Not, like when she's 10... Right now, Vienna has more
clothing than I do. Granted, most homeless people have
more clothing than I do, but the point is still
We had to break up
the baby showers into 3 different days because we
simply couldn't host that many people. We had 2 at our
place and the final one today at a restaurant. We
presupposed that August would be too hot to have it
outside and we, were, right. Record-breaking heat wave
in the Valley right now. Enjoy...
cute stuff and we're extremely excited and having a
blast picturing Vienna in everything. After every
shower Talya and I looked at each other and said:
"We really are having a baby aren't we...". It's kinda
nutty. I'm so deep into all the remodeling
I barely think about the end result, but on days
like this I certainly do. By the end of this
final shower however, I was just shaking my head.
Laura (Adler) was laughing at me. She knew exactly
what I was thinking. "How, much, more, baby shit
could this kid ever need?". Of course more, and now
comes the part where we see what we NEED as opposed to
what we HAVE and there'll be another round of stuff
bought around the time of the birth...
...and of course
every goddamned month for the next 18 years.
Thankfully, at some point, Talya and I will be the
guardian of what goes in and out of the house and
there will be some semblance of order.
I mean, if we don't have that - what the hell is
the point of having a baby to create chaos!! :-) I
love the chaos of kids, no doubt, but I abhor the
overflow of shit that society has told us we "need" to
have a kid. Like, I get all the clothes - that's just
straight up fun right there. But the baby has her own
food processor now. Come on man. Really? Should
I have just built her a MINI-WING of the house
with all this shit? LOL. However my favorite item so
far has to be, without a doubt, a rocking chair that
one of Talya's relative's painted...
How precious is
that? So perfect...
Anyway, Jimmy gets
here tomorrow so I have to go fix up his house a bit.
Whew. So much change, so little time...
