Our Stroller: Graco Modes Click Connect Stroller

Little H is all cozy on our walk. 
I have to tell ya, I LOVE our stroller. We got the Graco Modes Travel System. It came to around $200 after we used a coupon from the Babies'R'Us trade-in event. I knew I wanted it after looking at tons of pregnancy mags in the OB office. Any other women leave there OB appointments with a shopping list? Those magazines are basically giant wish lists! 

There are so many strollers and so many of them are EXPENSIVE. I knew Graco would be reasonably priced and good quality. Sophia's first stroller had been awful and we didn't keep it long at all. This time I wanted one that would last. When it comes to strollers you have to do your research and know what you want. 

I knew I would love having 10 different options for how to use the stroller. 
Look below or check it out here

I love the rear-facing infant stroller option. That's how she is in the picture. The seat is very light weight so there is no problem flipping it around. The basket at the bottom is roomy and there are 4 cup holders. I love that it is gender neutral and the black will help keep it looking clean. AND it survived me pulling it out of the truck and dropping it to the ground. That's a nice feature too. :) 

Ok, I am going to stop. I think it is clear that I like the stroller. Any one else get the Graco Modes? Any pregnant momma's got a stroller on their wish list already ?

Thanks for reading!

3 Months Old

                                                                                                           Dear Little One, 

You are three months old! It seems amazing to me that you have grown so much and can do so much more already. Last month you could only coo a little and smiling was surprise. Now it seems that your little coos are full conversations and I have figured out plenty of ways to get you to smile! You are beginning to realize you can use your hands to grab things. You grab onto the toys hanging from the floor mat.  You still wake up about 3 times a night and drink 3-4 ounces.
I love it when you rest your head on my shoulder and the look on your face when I first pick you up in the morning. I love you so much!

Five on Friday 3.13.15


The first part of my five on friday is my birth annoucements for Little H.  Four through five are baby products we are using the time around.  I wrote a bit about the car seat.
Hopefully over the next few weeks I can fill you in on some pros/cons of others. 

 {One} Birth Announcements!
My pictures don't doesn't do the card justice, but here it is:

I have only gotten to use it once, but so far I love it.  With the great weather we are supposed to have today and this week, hopefully it will get used more. 

{Three} Happy Wrap: Bamboo Baby Wrap
This is the wrap I use. 

{Four}  Inertia Infant Car Seat by Baby Trend

This car seat is kinda big, but I love how cozy Little H looks in it. With Sophia I had to one of those cushion head inserts in her car seat, but I have never felt she needed one in this seat. The canopy is big and it has one of the covers that comes over the baby's legs.

{Five} Medela Pump In Style Advanced

February 2015

 I just typed out a big post and thought it saved/published. Nope.  So here it goes again.

 It's late, but here is a few pics from February. 
Is it wrong that I think the crying pic is adorable?
She is expressing how so many people feel about Valentine's Day.
Sophia went to a high school cheer clinic and cheered at a game. 

  • Little H turned 2 months old! She has started cooing and smiling!
  • We went to Science Central.
  • Little H went to my hometown and visited for the first time. 
  • Sophia lost her first tooth!
  • I read a few books:
