Matt and I drove all the way to New Jersey this past Saturday (about an hour away) because we wanted to check out BuyBuyBaby. It's a baby superstore that's a relative of Bed Bath & Beyond, you can even use Bed Bath & Beyond's 20% off coupons there. While we were there, we found crib bedding and nursery decor that we love, so we decided to create an additional registry. We got our car seat there, too. It's a Peg-Perego. We stood staring at three colors we liked for 15 minutes at a time, completely unable to make a choice. We took turns watching each other holding and walking with each one, then we'd throw up our hands, go walk around and look at other things, then come back and stare at the colors again. Finally, after our legs couldn't take the aimless wandering for one more minute (and we'd been there for about 2 hours), we decided to go for the boldest choice, our reasoning being: It's a baby, he needs attention! We got the red one. It's crazy cute.
The day we got it, we were so exhausted and unsure if we had picked the right one for us. Now we both agree that we definitely love it. It's just one item, but it's progress - I'm so excited ... and really overwhelmed by all the things we still need to get within the next 3 months. Deciding on colors makes me nuts!
