Rubber baby buggy bumpers, nothing.

A quick equation for you all:

Life post-baby’s arrival ≠ Life pre-baby + baby

See, if you were to take a newborn and fold it efficiently (please don’t), you’d really only have about a half foot of baby, cubed.

But, if you were to take all the stuff said baby comes with after just one of two baby showers, you’d have more than can fit (Tetris-style!) on a dining room table large enough to seat eight comfortably.

nice description, but you really need to to post a picture of the daunting equipment collection!

I had thought of that, but really, isn't "folding a baby" vivid enough imagery?

And actually, I just realized I got the equation backwards. Hurray for revisionist blogging!

The baby stuff has taken over the house! Computer room is now computer room/toy room/pack-n-play storage area, basement is full of the swing/exersaucer/old car seat he doesn't fit in anymore/new car seat he doesn't fit in yet/clothes he can't wear yet/clothes he can't wear anymore...I didn't try to fold him while on vacation though....

Leah bought those vaccuum sealed garment bags, which I think would work rather well on a baby. Soft storage is always easier.
