My, how things …

My, how things have changed. 

 

For starters, clearly, I’m a Mom now, so my name is now Mommy. Hubby is now Daddy. That will be a forever change. There are so many things in my life that have changed, I thought I’d begin to keep a tally and that Cecilia at some point may get a kick out of it. 

 

So, let’s begin with our home. I’ll begin with the kitchen. 

 

The sink is now a bathtub, and there’s a new side of the sink now when it’s not being used as a tub, that is the baby side, where the bottles are washed and soaked. Keep your forks out of the “baby water”!! 🙂 The kitchen table is now the surface that the baby’s vibrating rocking chair can rock on, so that’s where she sits while I cook dinner. Yup, on top of the kitchen table, in her chair!

Our lunch boxes are now used to keep bottles of prepared formula cold, so they are being prominently displayed on top of the microwave which is also where the stacked cans of Gerber soy formula powder are being displayed. 

 

The Living room ottoman, which used to be the surface to reach for books, laptops,iPhones, iPads, remote controls, magazines and a place to rest drinks or the occasional plate of dessert, is now being utilized almost exclusively by baby. The ottoman is the best place to view the “flashy light box”, better known as the television. We also use the ottoman as a changing table, yup, try not to place your dessert down next to that dirty diaper (JUST KIDDING). Cici lays here after her bath to get re-diapered and clothed. The baby play place (a nifty contraptionn that has mirrors and other dangly things) fits perfectly on this surface and again, the vibrating rocking chair also sits a top the ottoman. 

 

The nursery used to be Curt’s music studio. A place to practice for 3 hours a day, a place to teach, a room to store the many guitars, amplifier, a lute, amongst other things like scores of scores! All the music reference books, a copier/scanner….anything and everything a classical guitar player needs to care for his nails and guitars. This may sound pretty simple… but have you met a classical guitar player?? If you have, you’ll understand! The studio is now a small nook in our living room that we’ve added a shelf to …and Andres Segovia sees over the business that’s handled here. Lessons are now given in the living room and practice happens here as well. This was the hardest thing for me to see change when we prepared for the arrival of the Princess. I felt like I was a walking  (waddling) eviction notice for Curt and his studio. We moved a bookshelf  (which now serves as a morning breakfast table while I wait for baby to wake up) and the heaviest filing cabinet known to man into our bedroom, which now gives me a new place to put the many baskets of unfolded laundry. We moved out everything but the wall art. Cecilia will grow up with New York Yankee wall decor. The “David Cone perfect game” photo is right behind the super comfy glider which sits now where Daddy’s shelving used to hang.  

 

I’ll continue adding here so Cecilia can see how much she’s changed one day, till then I’ll keep reading this to remind me how lucky we are.
