* flashback friday* :: Sergei's nursery!

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.
