Well, today, we made yet another trip to Babies R Us, accompanied by my MIL, Marge. Marge was just as overwhelmed by the amount of products for baby as we were initially! LOL. CJ took Marge to the stroller section and that's when he saw the stroller HE has been coveting (since he saw our friend's Rock Star Baby Stroller, made by the same manufacturer, but with Jon Bon Jovi's name on it, so they jacked it up by twice the price of this stroller). The Icoo Infinity stroller was on clearance - and not only that, it was also an extra 15% off. CJ's eyes lit up like a kid at Christmas, and he purchased the stroller for himself. LOL. He calls it "his stroller" - and he loves it because it can be foreward or backward facing, the seat comes right off and you can attach the infant seat right to the frame (similar to a Snap n Go), and it IS relatively light-weight.
When we ventured over to the Infant Car Seat section, I showed Marge and CJ the infant seat we had registered for, the Graco Snug Ride - but then debated on the fact that the Snug Ride only goes up to 22 lbs for a baby, before you have to take him/her out. Well, after finding out the CJ was 9 lbs, 13 oz. at birth, and knowing my egg donor, Mooshie's, daughter Maddie was 8 lbs, 12 oz, at birth, I freaked a bit about the potential size of Keifer Lynn and wondered just how long she'd last in an infant seat that only went up to 22 lbs.. Yes, I'd heard that the Graco Safe Seat was a bit lumber some, but I'd also read and heard that this new seat on the market went through a variety of safety standard tests and was rated very highly, and has a weight capacity of 30 lbs.. Right then and there in the baby seat aisle, Marge announced she would buy us the Safe Seat for our baby shower in January! So we decided on the "Roxy" pattern (LOL because now I'll always think of my MN friend, Roxy!), and we have it in our garage! YAY! There is nothing like baby shopping for new and exciting baby gear to get the adrenaline pumping!
