Second Big Baby Purchase

Do you remember how I was trying to decide whether to get the nuetral travel system or the pink one? Well, Wal-Mart made the decision for me! They have five travel systems in stores. One of them was Winnie the Pooh which I don't care for at all so it was automatically out. One was just ugly and one didn't have all the gadgets that I wanted (and I didn't want many so it was just sad). That left two...the two most expensive. Why do I have to go with the most expensive ones? This is why I am registering at Wal-Mart! Anyway, there was a pink and grey one that was $180.00 and there was a nuetral tan and teal that was $220.00. I was trying to decide if I wanted to get the nuetral in case we have a boy later or get the grey and pink because we are having a girl now. I went to do grocery shopping this morning and the grey and pink one was on clearance for $130.00 and there was only one left. $50.00 off the one I really wanted sealed the deal for me. I snatched it up and it is now assembled and George was kind enough to try it out for us.
George loved the carseat. He thought it was soooo comfortable!
It came with one base. I think I'll go ahead and buy a second for Russ' car or for my Mom's car when she watches Chloe.
I love that the tray lifts up for easy loading and access.
It will recline or....
sit up for whatever baby's pleasure is.
And the carseat attaches to the stroller! This is probably one of the coolest features. I know, I know, that's what a travel system does, but it's still cool!
Plus, it's grey and the interior of my car is grey so it will match! This is important to me for some reason. I'm so excited about getting this large item. Next on the agenda: a Pack and Play.
In other exciting news, the church I am a member of has scheduled a baby shower for me for March 19th and the church my sis and bro-in-law wants to schedule one for us also. I just have to get back to them with a date. I asked Russ if he wanted to register with me and he said he didn't care so I asked my Mom if she wanted to go. Well, then I told Russ that it hurt my feelings that he doesn't care about buying anything for Chloe and he decided that maybe he should go with me to register. I know, I'm awful. I should have just told him up front that I wanted him to go. Either way, it looks like we are all going to go together sometime in the next couple of weeks. I have an interview with a woman that runs a home day care next Thursday. She was recommended by the preacher's wife so I'm excited about it. Everything seems to be falling into place. I start lamaze classes at the end of March and after those get over with, I'll just be biding my time. Ack! She's almost here! YAY!
