We went baby shopping today. My aunt Melodee works at a baby store called Bergstroms, so we went with her and my mom to look at some of the bigger items we’ll need. We’re not ordering a crib yet since we’re still living with my grandmother. We are getting this cradle, the Chloe cradle in white. I already have the KidsLine Rapunzel bedding for the cradle.
I had already decided about the cradle, but we hadn’t actually seen it in person, so we looked at it. We really needed to look at and try the strollers and car seats. I had a few in mind to look at and we ended up both liking the same one best. We’re getting the Bumbleride Flyer and I picked the Vita color scheme.
It lies down flat for when she’s tiny and the foot rest thing folds up so I don’t even feel like I’ll need the bassinet attachment. The handlebar swivels so the baby can face me or face front, and it’s pretty easy to fold and unfold. The stroller goes to 45 pounds, so that should pretty much last until she doesn’t need a stroller anymore. I really like this color scheme because it’s pink on the sides but it’s a nice medium grey where the baby goes. I like that because it’s a good neutral background color which should go well with any outfit Guinevere might be wearing. I don’t like white or black because I think they get messy too easily, plus I think much black is too strong for a baby. I’ve decided that grey is my current neutral of choice.
The car seat we chose is a Baby Trend. It’s not too heavy but goes to 30 pounds or 30 inches long. Jerrod had a really easy time snapping it in and out of the base, and he even strapped the doll into the seat. This is the best color scheme I’ve seen on a car seat. It’s that nice medium grey again and a great purple accent. I can just imagine her going home pictures in this car seat, and how nicely she will stand out against the background.
