First Adventure in Baby Shopping

Saturday was a really good day.  There was a huge consignment sale for baby/kids stuff around where I live, and a friend and I went to check it out. She bought a bunch of stuff for her son, and I only brought home one thing, but that's mainly because we don't know the sex of our baby yet. I'm sure there will be a little shopping spree in my near future though. :)

I ended up buying one of those little vibrating chairs for ten bucks. Hopefully when baby is born, he/she will love it as much as I'm told that babies do... But if not, then the chair will go to good use anyway because one of my cats, Noodles, has decided that he really likes it as a lounger:

It's a strange feeling to walk in to my house and see that baby chair sitting there... It's like I have to do a double take when I walk in just to make sure I'm in the right house! But it's also exciting. :)

When I got home from the sale, DH and I decided to go to Babies R Us for the first time just to look around for strollers. DH has been obsessed with the stroller from the get-go, claiming that it has to tiny, and it can't be a van etc.. etc... He's been looking at strollers on the Bugaboo website. He likes them because they are small..... He can like them all he wants, but there's no way we are ever going to pay $1500ish for a stroller!!!! Sooooooooo.... LOL We took a look at what they had at BRU, and we found one that we both liked. It's not inexpensive either, but at least it's under $500. We liked the Evenflow Eurotrek Travel system - Sunningdale. From this pic, it looks like it's vomit colour, but in person, it's actually a nice sporty looking green. :) We're not actually going to buy this until a bit later, but at least we have agreed on something we like.

I have to say that I really enjoyed shopping with DH. I thought he might be a bit weirded out by the baby store, but honestly, he was so cute looking at the clothes and diaper bags and stuff that were there. I think it was the first time I really saw him get excited about baby things. :)


  1. I just wanted to introduce myself, I found your blog on the bump. I read a couple months back on your blog to see what your pregnancy symptoms were like and I seem to be right on track.

  2. I hope that you get your BFP! Good luck! :)

  3. That's a cute chair, and your cat looks a lot like my Whiskers. I got a bassinet last month and for awhile it was weird seeing it sitting there in the living room. I still have to do more shopping but I'm waiting until we clean out and paint the nursery, so stuff has a place to go.

    I found your blog on the bump, I'm also due in February. (I still need to create an account there yet, after I figure out a screen name).
