Our New “Bar Stool”

Every once in a while when Abigail is down for a nap or playing peacefully in the living room, I look around our apartment that was once filled with all things “adult” (minus the Giants’ bobbleheads and stuffed animals from our youth) and am reminded that life has changed.

The latest example?  Take a look at our new “bar stool” in the kitchen.

Not half bad, right?  I actually think it fits in quite nicely considering it’s a high chair.  And for those of you who have been paying close attention, it even matches Abigail’s bedding (SEE!).

In the event you love damask as much as Abby does (because she obviously hand selected the print while in the womb), take a look at the Graco Contempo Rittenhouse High Chair.  Not only does it look great, but it also gets pretty darn great reviews.

I actually love our new “bar stool” – it’s just another reminder that our lives have changed in the best way possible.

    Keep a close watch on what she drinks, while in her “bar stool” 🙂
    It does fit nicely in the space under your counter!

  2. Vivien loves damask too! My entire wedding was damask, and now it’s being passed on to Vivvy, through the womb. I registered for that Graco pack and play pattern, but had to hold back putting down for the carseat combo too, since we plan to re-use the bigger items, and a baby boy might not be too thrilled about using a damask carseat and stroller. 🙂

    I dig your new bar stool, personally!

      haha…I knew you’d like the high chair! 🙂 and you probably made the right decision on going “neutral” on the car seat combo (though I’m not going to lie…Travis and I have already decided Abby’s high chair is “neutral enough” for a boy to use as well…haha). 🙂

      • A high chair should match the kitchen or the area, I think. I don’t buy pink kitchen chairs because I’m a girl, nor does Eli have a blue one to distinguish the fact that he’s a boy. I think a high chair is like a piece of furniture, so I agree that damask is, indeed, gender neutral for a high chair. Pack and play too, because, I plan on it going downstairs in the living room, so therefore, it should match. That’s me justifying. 🙂
        However, a car seat combo is different, mostly because people “Assume” too much in public. (do girls ALWAYS have to wear pink or headbands in public? I beg to differ.)

        I love the high chair!

          haha…I completely agree with you, Megan!!! The funny thing is that if Abby’s NOT in pink, people assume she’s a boy – it’s quite hilarious. Her Giants clothes throw them off quite a bit as well (that one’s not so much of a shock). 🙂
