It’s surprising how much gear you need for such a little person. Pack N Plays, car seats, swings, bouncy seats, bumbos, jumperoos…our house is going to seem very small, very fast! One of the biggest decisions in my mind was the stroller. Do you go with the full travel system? the jogger? a bigger one plus an umbrella stroller? high end Bugaboo or affordable Chicco? Too many decisions! After much research I LOVE our stroller…graciously given to us by the Browns. Thanks Mary Lou and Ronnie!
We wanted something that we could easily use walking around the neighborhood considering that’s what we’ll be using it for most. However, we didn’t want to get just a jogging stroller because they can be so heavy and not easy to get into the car. I think we found the perfect combo – it’s the City Mini by Baby Jogger. It can easily handle the uneven sidewalks on a power walk but is also super easy to fold up with one hand and slide into the trunk for a visit to the pediatrician’s office. We were also able to get a car seat adaptor so it’s like a travel system too!
Here is our City Mini. Little Al is ready for a stroll!
When he gets tired he can lay down flat and I can keep strolling.
I can even peek in on him from the view panels in the top.
And with the pull of one strap with one hand, it folds up as flat as can be! easy!

For the spring we definitely want a BOB as well – the best jogging strollers around. Christmas wish list!
The BOB is fantastic and I know Robert will love it so he can take his little guy on his runs around the neighborhood!
