Car Seat and Stroller? Check!

Yup, in the last two weeks we got another couple big things on our checklist done!

First, a friend told us that the city mini was on for a great deal of 110 dollars at a liquidation place in TO...they were wrong. BUT in fact the Baby Jogger City Micro WAS there for 100 dollars. So after some quick research to see the difference between the two, we decided it would work and we went for it...soooo


The wheels are a bit smaller and the recline is not as full as the city mini but overall we are happy with our choice. And the colors to choose from our just fun:)

Since we are due in February we figure we won't be going out with the baby in the stroller in the first few months anyways, so all the features should work great.

Here are the features:
  • Patented Quick-Fold Technology - allows you to fold your stroller in one simple step
  • Swivel front wheel for precise maneuverability can lock into place for long distance strolling
  • 8" rear and 6" front quick-release EVA wheels with sealed ball bearings
  • Patented universal accessory mounting bracket – accessorize your stroller with ease
  • One-step adjustable reclining seat
  • 2 Position sun canopy with clear view window
  • Rounded handlebar for pushing comfort
  • Front wheel suspension provides a smooth comfortable ride
  • Seat back storage compartment
  • Under seat storage basket
  • Adjustable five-point safety harness
  • Rear parking brake
  • Fold strap to keep stroller folded for transportation or storage
  • 50 lb. weight capacity on stroller

And secondly...because my in-laws are AWESOME...they bought us our first carseat!  So in the mail in the next few days we should receive the Britax Marathon for our little one.

The car seat boasts these: 
  • Energy-Absorbing Versa-Tether® features a staged-release tether webbing to slow the forward movement, reducing the crash forces reaching the child, and a two-point attachment to minimize forward rotation while anchoring the top of the child seat
  • Premium Lower LATCH Connectors for a quick and simple installation featuring a push button for easy release
  • Built-in Lock-Offs ensure a snug lap and shoulder belt installation with minimal effort
  • Harness Ultra Guard System (HUGS™) provides resistance to forward movement in the event of a crash
  • Rear and Forward Facing Recline for child comfort and positioning
  • Convenient Harness Holders keep harness straps out of the way when placing your child in the car seat
  • Small Contoured Base ensures a tight installation in all types of vehicles
  • Energy-Absorbing Foam Liner (EPS) absorbs and distributes crash forces
  • High Density Comfort Foam provides an extra layer of padding to gently cushion your child
  • Front Harness Adjuster provides effortless front adjustment when loosening the harness system
  • Plush, Premium Cover Set with matching belly pad provides extra comfort
  • Energy-Absorbing Base deforms in the event of a crash to absorb impact forces
  • Certified for Aircraft Travel

So now if we don't ever get that crib up and can just sleep in the car seat;)  

A successful couple of weeks for us!

It was at the Samko Toy Liquidation in Mississauga if you know anyone who would want one! We were pretty pleased:)
