We’ve all heard of the saying, less is more, right? Well, just to keep on the cliche bandwagon here, a picture says a thousands words, and it is obvious that less is more really doesn’t apply to my current situation!

Sometimes I feel like I am living in a reality show called: Attack of the Baby Stuff. Simply put our condo has been invaded by what were previously foreign entities to us: an exersaucer, a bouncy chair, teensy-tiny little clothes, a pack-n-play, a Bumbo, and the list could go on and on. I mean if you look at our dining table (which, truth be told, never was that tidy to begin with), it looks like it has become a Mount Vesuvius of sorts but instead of pouring out hot lava, we’ve got the baby version: a Baby Einstein play mat as the peek, and what’s pouring out is a car seat and car seat cover, a Baby Bjorn, a mini snowsuit (with token dangling mittens on a string), baby blankets, Baby Banz, and a diaper bag filled to the brim, not to mention, place mats, a newspaper, reusable grocery bags, unopened mail, my winter coat and scarf, and a bunch of other random items that I just can’t remember or see, due to the growing volcano.

You know when you used to play that birthday game as a kid, where you looked a tray full of random items for 20 seconds and then had to remember what they were? This is how I felt when I checked out my table and tried to remember all the little pieces that had collected on it: an older grown-up version of the game I guess! Fun.

But regardless of being under attack, Borys and I agree, it’s all totally worth it!


Today I spent a good portion of my morning reorganzing Niko’s closet.  He has grown out of so many clothes! It is crazy to think that his size really all depends on what perspective you look at it from.

Some of the clothes that I put into storage looked so huge when he first got them, and I wondered when he would ever grow into the humongous digs.  But now, looking at these little outfits, I think they look super tiny and I wonder how he ever fit into them! Considering the fact that he has more than doubled in size since he was born, I guess this makes sense, but wow a few months really do make a huge difference in the life of a newborn!


Well, now that my mind has been set at ease that little Niko is growing and gaining weight, I decided to go through his clothes and put away the ones that are getting snug and take out the ones that he’s been waiting to grow into.  I was surprised, when I pulled out the three month outfits to find that he actually fits into a lot of them right now: including a pair of overalls, that I have really wanted to dress him up in! It’s a good thing I took a look at the clothes in storage, otherwise he may have outgrown them before he even wore them!
