Baby Colors...

So. Here's the thing - I LOVE color! Seriously there is just no denying it, I love color and lots of it! So the question I have for you all then is this: Why are all things baby pastels???? Why is it so hard to find brightly colored items for babies?!? If it's not baby butt blue or pink it's soft yellow or green. Orange, red and purple are just left completely out of the color scheme when it comes to nurseries, not to mention clothing! Does anyone know who I can write to about this phenomenon? I'm to the point where I just went out and bought fabric with which to create my own blanket for the crib. I know it won't be used for some time, however, it will be BRIGHTLY colored not pale. Our child will grow up with eye problems due to their overexsposure to color so early on in infancy. But you know what, they'll like red! :) Check out the AWESOME fabrics I bought for Sesame today:

I can't wait to start sewing!

I used to feel the same way when I was your age. I dressed the first two in brighter colors...and later on -when looking at my photographs- realized that little babies are just that..little babies... for such a short time..VERY short. I grew to love those baby sweet colors more and more. They really do look good in them.
After all, they will have the rest of their lives to wear whatever color, and most likely it will not be pastels!


JMHO, of course. rawk on with your bright colors!!!
Makes the world go round.
