Baby Shopping






Today, Landon and I took a trip to Wichita to shop for baby items. The first place we go is Target so that we can compare prices to other stores. I think that for the most part, Target and Babies R Us will provide us with everything we need. Next, we go to a local place called Tiny Tykes Furniture. They had an amazing selection of cribs and nursery furniture. I think we've decided on a crib from there too (see picture). We planned to buy a crib or carseat today, and we finally decided on a carseat.
Our major problem with carseats is our car. It's a 2002 Firebird, which is obviously not made for transporting children. We went to Babies R Us and with the help of the sales person were able to decide on a carseat that would most likely fit our car (see picture). We get home though, and it's a pain to get the carseat to fit in the car without making the person in the front seat suffer. We finally found that if we put it on the passenger side, and have me sit in the front while Landon drives is the only way that we'll be able to manage. We're not selling the car, so I'll just have to be smashed for a year, while the carseat has to be rearfacing. The carseat itself is awesome. It's light and super easy to get in and out of the base. I think that we'll really enjoy it. Stupid car, though.
We also stopped by a baby consignment shop, which would be great to shop in, if we knew we were having a boy or girl. Their selection of cheap clothes was great. We also stopped at the mall to check out JC Penneys, etc. I also like JC Penney's selection of baby items. On a whim, we stopped at Spencers and found a cute onesie (see picture) if we have a girl- if we don't ever have a girl, maybe a neice. By the time we were done shopping, we were both ready to go home and take a nap. Eventually we start buying more things, but we still have 5 months left.

That's the same carseat we have (only ours is green) and we love it.
