Remember a while ago, I bought the Arm's Reach Co-sleeper? Well, I returned it.
Instead, I bought this little bassinet for $50 [on Craigslist] and put it next to the bed.
It comes with a moses basket [within the bassinet] and think it will work out great. It will be nice to have something portable. When I go to a friends house or for an overnight trip, this will be perfect. Either bed would only last the baby a few months, so price, size and portability all played a part in my decision. I am planning to change the fabric and add some memory foam to the bottom for added comfort.
As far as a full size crib, I am still getting one. I thought I was decided on the Baby Mod crib but I couldn't get this one out of my head.
I have always liked the Jenny Lind crib classic style. It has a vintage feel and once I add some modern fabric, I think it is going to look fabulous! As it turns out it's delivery has been delayed until October. (Come on Target!)
Ernesto moved one of our leather chairs into the bedroom where I can relax and feed the baby. It is not a rocker, but will have to do.
Between Amazon, Target and Babies R Us, we have been receiving packages with baby supplies in the mail everyday. We are saving all the boxes in the garage in hopes that we will be moving into a house someday soon.
After the xmas lighting season, we will say goodbye to my trusty Saab and buy a new car. Dare I say...a "family car?" (Im not talking mini-van folks, because that would be way to practical for me, plus I have made fun of them for years so I just couldn't) In the mean time, Ernesto cleaned up my car and fixed a few [of the many] things that have been broken for a long time. He also detailed the inside. I was flabbergasted by what a difference it made. Who would've known that a clean car is much more enjoyable to drive. Ha!
BOB Revolution Stoller from REI. How am I so excited about a stroller?! I could push (and steer) this thing with one finger. It is the perfect stroller for our walking/running lifestyle. I plan on taking walks with the baby daily and with the uneven pavement, trails and brick sidewalks outside our door, this will do the trick!
Because infants are not able to sit in these strollers for several months, we bought the converter piece for our Chicco KeyFit car seat to sit inside the stroller.
** I am not THAT naive.
