Did Serge ever sleep in his crib? No, not really. Did I ever change him on the changing table? Hmm...well, sometimes. But the couch was a more common spot i must admit. But, as we all know the nesting instinct is a powerful one, and i wanted everything to be perfect.
I've had an obsession w/vintage baby and kids clothes for as long as i can remmeber. In high school even, i would buy old terry cloth sleepers with strange elephants appliqued on the bum (just cause i couldnt bear to leave them once i laid my eyes upon them)and hunt for people with babies to pass them on to... I know, weird. So imagine my joy when i was actually gonna have one of my own tiny little fashion plates to drag around town in old levis,cardigans and band tees. (sick i know, i am not denying)
So, maybe i went a little overboard at the thrift stores. Accumulating a dresser and closet full before the birth. But let me tell ya, when this guy arrived, he was, for real the best dressed newborn this side of the Mississippi.
