Color them overjoyed: Painters Genevieve and Joseph McCarthy (he is also a graphic designer at Koch Entertainment), both 33, have a new little blank canvas, prompting them to move from artsy Williamsburg to ( yikes) Bergenfield, N.J. Ms. McCarthy already misses “the deli on the corner” in Brooklyn, but she is enjoying the extra space, not to mention her husband of two years’ active participation in the parenting process. “He does about half the feeding, half the rocking to sleep,” she said. “We don’t have any rules. We share every responsibility.” Ah, moderns! Porcelain-skinned little Olivia’s middle name was inspired by a storm during her birth, but she’s a mostly serene baby who enjoys cooing to her mother’s favorite music to work by: Mozart and Beethoven. Of course, Ms. McCarthy is eager to paint her firstborn’s portrait. “I just have to figure out which photo to use,” she said. “I have way too many.”
