The rug has to go. It was fine in Alice's room but we swapped them because the one there now just was a pain to deal with and now it's bad in there too. Let's just say fuzzy rugs plus crawling baby equals a lot of "what's in your mouth?!" A rug in here will be the last thing bought because they tie the whole room together and the room is just not ready for a "finishing touch".
Day to day we have this thing cluttered with our daily in and out stuff like a pile for our wallets and sunglasses but this is what it looks like for company. On a more overall philosophy, we need more family pictures on display. Back in La Mirada we had a lot of wall space and I had family pics everywhere but now there's a severe lack of wall space. I think I might switch out pictures in the kitchen with family pictures instead of food pictures because come on, who cares about food pictures, family is what matters and now we have a cute baby to proudly share with the world.
And when the baby's around, the ottoman is off to the side for maximum baby play area or right in front of where Matt sits and puts his feet up to watch ballgames (we now have cable!).
Her car seat usually sits here when we load her in and out of the house.
