You surely took over our lives after you were born, bending our wills and sleeping schedule to your desires, but our apartment still had enough remnants of our old lives that it looked familiar. This meaning we could still see our pre-baby life as we transitioned to a new chapter.
But with each passing month, more and more of your stuff has taken over the apartment. With the latest rearrangement and influx of new furniture, we are probably at the point where half of the apartment is a direct impact of your existence. The other half? Starting to feel like an interactive museum of our personal effects from another life ago…they elicit memories and we occasionally use them.
I wish I did a better job documenting the evolution of our furniture layouts since you were born since it’d be quite telling about what is the focus of our apartment / lives. At 17 months, you’re playing and exploring a lot, so we wanted to maintain an open layout but also make sure you have a large organized play space. Probably won’t be long before the apartment gets rearranged once more….
