I've got my stroller & car seat picked out!!!
It's a hard decision, and how do you know what works, what is safest, and what will fit in your trunk? lol. With all the wise advice I've been soaking in from my "super-mom" sister-in-law I have decided that I will be registering for this stroller and car seat! I will have to give all the credit to Bethany (my SIL) for inspiring me about this stroller. Bethany has this same style different pattern stroller that she has used for Jack, and before I even knew I was pregnant, I always thought how awesome her stroller was! :)
It is the Graco Mosaic Stroller in Lemon Grass.
This stroller is lightweight, practical, easy to maneuver, and folds down really small! It's not a bulky travel system that you think you need because it holds the car seat, but it's small and still fits the car seat perfectly!! Plus, isn't it so cute in this black & green pattern!?!?!
When I asked Mike if he liked it, he said, "Is there a cup holder?" I told him yes, and then he said "that's all that matters!" lol. The cup holder is attached on the side! I will be toting my tervis tumbler in it! :) hehe.
And there is the carseat, I can already see my little sweet baby all cuddled up in there coming home from the hospital! Ahhhhh! I can't wait to meet the little one! :) The car seat is a Graco Snugride 32 Infant Car Seat!I found the pack-n-play that converts into a bassinet in the same lemon grass pattern that has only been sold in the UK! I was so aggravated that they don't sell it here in the US! I found it on a couple of sites, but every site is sold out, and they don't sell it a babies r us, which is crazy, they have everything! It would go perfect in our room for the baby to sleep in for the first couple of months. I'm praying that for some reason I will find it being sold in the US! I'm just in love with this pattern!
Other items that I've been looking at is cribs & changing tables, I'll keep you updated on what I decide. I really like white furniture, and I know I want a brown rocker, so I know that there will be white & brown in the nursery whether it's a girl or a boy!
Oh, and I have a feeling that I'm having a girl. Mike wants a boy, & I want a girl. I told Mike that even if we have a girl, she could still play basketball with him, but if she has my bball skills, that wouldn't be fun! lol. I would love to have a boy though, Beth is have Tate in a couple of months, and they will only be 4 months apart, they could be best friends! But then again, we need some girls for the Singleton side! Plus, I need to put some hairbows in my child's hair!!! hehe.
Does anyone have any baby gear advice, things that you wouldn't live without for your infant? What do you think it's going to be? Boy or Girl?
