This past weekend we went to Babies r Us (BRU) to see what stuff looks like, and to get an idea of things we'll need. we have definite decided that BRU is too price. I priced some things that are also sold in Sears and Wal-Mart, and these stores are much cheaper than BRU for the same or very similar items.
I'm glad we looked at the strollers b/c now we've decided to get the travel system which is the stroller with the toddler car seat and car seat base. We would just need to have an extra base for Marcus' car.
Let me know what you think.
There is also a pack n' play that happens to match this. It's like a play pen, bassinet, changing table, and vibrating chair all in one. We can take it everywhere including the grandparents' homes. Also, we decided that the baby was going to sleep in his own room in his own bed, but if we change our minds in the beginning we can use it in our room instead of buying another bassinet.
There is also a matching high chair, but how early do you really need to buy that? We'll probably get it later or just get a cheaper one that attaches to the dining table.
For now, this is all we've decided on. I think we'll do more this weekend. I'll probably end up making a registry while Marcus is being sucked into all that football (rolling eyes). We'll see.
