getting ready...

I picked up a few weeks ago for a great deal - just a smidgen more than a 2011 single model on a clearance sale of last year's model at a small running store (thanks to a tip from an internetz friend).
have no fear, soon there will be a test run with stuffed animals.

My mamma-in-law came to visit last weekend and we made our first "real" purchases (e.g., for things we actually NEED).
infant seats, from C's grandfather. 
We also ordered our cribs - small footprint & small pricetag, but still convertibles (for the outside chance we get a house that can fit full sized beds in the kids' room) and super sturdy & pretty well reviewed. (We still need to get mattresses though, something I am trying not to obsess over)
And we got home (well, to our home-ish, at my parents) to this in the living room:

my mom found it at a consignment shop. aside from where you can see a piece is missing, it is IMMACULATE. like I don't think it was ever used.

It's now living on top of the massive car seat boxes in the living room. The stroller is next to our bed. Where the heck are you supposed to store this stuff (e.g. if you're living in an apartment or, say, your parents' attic?)?


  1. Woo hoo for new stuff! Very pretty stroller. You'll LOVE it.

  2. This whole post makes me so happy :) :) :)

  3. What low=footprint crib did you go with? I've been researching environmentally friendly stuff, and my partner's been all over the jogging stroller. She's liking the City Jogger line right now.
