stroller decisions

I can't believe it's been so long since I posted. I've been totally preoccupied by all the baby prep I guess, including choosing a stroller. We finally made our choice - the Baby Jogger City Select.

2010 Baby Jogger City Select In Ruby

I'm so excited about this stroller, it moves well, has great wheels, easy to fold (as are all baby joggers!) and it turns into a fantastic double - yes we are thinking that far ahead!

We haven't chosen an umbrella stroller yet, since we won't be able to use it in the beginning anyway, but I'm falling in love with the Uppa Baby G-Luxe -

2010 Uppa Baby G-Luxe Stroller In Jake Black

It's one of the lightest umbrella strollers with full recline available at 11 pounds.It's also got good wheels, a nice sized basket, and it stands on its own when it's folded. I'm sold!

Nursing PJ's and Robes

As my pregnancy progresses, I realize it might be time to start thinking more about nursing clothes than maternity clothes and I've focused on nursing pj's thinking those are what I will wear most the first couple of weeks. It will be raining here and cold - apartments here are not well heated or insulated so it gets cold even though it doesn't actually often go below 50 degrees.


Japanese Weekend makes some nice looking nursing pj's, like these -

A lot of the other ones I've seen are short sleeved or sleevless, so if we go that route, how about a comfy new robe? For some reason that really sounds like a lovely thing to buy myself -

Juicy Couture Ruffle Heart Basic Robe in Heather Cozy

So then middle of the night feedings, or morning or afternoon feedings for that matter, a little more comfortable. Who needs to change when you can throw a comfy new and cute robe on over the pj's and  then it's ok if there are tons of people around also. I wouldn't recommend staying in Pj's for too long, but for a couple of's bound to happen.

Diaper Bags and Diaper Clutches

There are diaper bags for everyone,

Rocker chic? check. This one is by Rebecca Minkoff -

Feminine and into patterns? Check -

Hoohobbers China Doll Messenger Diaper Bag

This company (Hoohobbers) has a lot of different sweet fabrics to choose from.

How about unisex so both you and the hubby can carry the same bag? Check -

StorkSak Aubrey Messenger Diaper Bag

Of course you could always buy the changing pad and wet bag and just add everything to the oversize purse you already carry. Or get a diaper clutch to keep everything together and compact and stick it in your big bag.

I like this one because you will never lose it in the chaos of a big bag -

The New Loafer

Flipping through last month's Bazaar I saw a little blurb about loafers. All of a sudden I thought back to those Bass shoes I wore in Middle school, they look just like the loafers that were in the magazine that are $400. Turns out, the Bass loafers are still the same, and around $50. That sounds great for a comfortable shoe that also passes for fashion.

It comes in several colors -

Then there is a more modern slimmer cut of the loafer and in patent leather no less -

My feet are going to happy this Fall!

Cute AND Comfortable shoes

I am desperate for some new comfortable cute shoes. I always walk alot, but let's face it, I'm now carrying some extra weight AND my feet are swollen (being almost 30 weeks pregnant will do that to a woman) so I decided it was time to look around.I saw these adorable Puma's on Endless, and I really like them.

They come in several colors, these are my picks,
PUMA Women's Saba Ballet Gloss Flat

Black goes with pretty much everything, but so does the grey and it's an unexpected shade.

The Cutest Little Baby Clothes...

I've been trying hard to resist buying any baby clothes yet, but I think I might have to cave thanks to these absolutely adorable little onesies from Old Navy. I know they are totally targeting my generation when they slap Superman and Star Wars onto such a cute tiny little piece of clothing.

Just look at how cute these are -

And then there is this one, for the parent who grew up during the grunge phase -

Old Navy Striped 2-in-1 Polo Bodysuits for Baby

So so cute, I can't take it!  And there is Batman for those of you who are partial to this character -

And, they are from Old Navy which means they are inexpensive. What a lovely gift they would make...
