UppaBaby Anyone?!

So, with Little Pit scheduled to come in 12 short weeks (can you believe it?)there have been some decisions that we've left until now to make, and I need your opinions and help!

First, a stroller that isn't just the car seat and frame. We have registered for the Graco Snugride 32 and the frame, but were at a loss for a stroller to go beyond that. I think we have decided on the UppaBaby Vista...it is pricey but seems like its versatile and sturdy...anyone have experience with this?

Second, does anyone know if you can order furniture to a Babies R Us store and pick it up there as opposed to paying the ridiculous shipping fee? We are not too far from the store so picking it up and saving over $100 is well worth it...let me know!

And lastly, anything else that was a MUST-HAVE that I should register for or just go out and buy myself?

In other news, Mr. Pit and I had a great time in Vermont this weekend besides some issues with the house we rented (they neglected to say there was a spiral staircase in the house, which, with 5 kids under the age of 7 was a HUGE issue) but we all survived and it was really nice to see our friends outside of a wedding venue!

Tomorrow night we are going to see Rain-the Beatles Experience at the Academy of Music and I am really excited for the show. I got the tickets as a gift to my entire family, and everyone besides my Mom is going as she is in Florida with my Grandfather for the week.

Then I am getting my haircut on Saturday, eating at my all time favorite breakfast place on Sunday and then of course Sunday night is SUPERBOWL!!

That's my week and I am excited to be in the middle of it :) Oh, and the groundhog saw his shadow today, so only 6 hopefully short more weeks of winter!

xoxo Mrs. Pit

I've never used that stroller so I can't help you with that.

I definitely recommend investing in a couple of swaddling blankets like these. Obviously you can swaddle with any blanket but these make it so easy. I recommend them to the new parents I work with.

I also love sleep sacks. There are different brands to choose from. I like that they keep baby warm AND safe.
