    Last year or the year before Lilly did really cute colorful boy shorts and baby bodysuits but I just looked and it seems like they don't have current ones. I'll keep an eye out on their social media though for this year because they were cuuuuute.

    Are you looking for outfits or just onesies? Sleepers?

    Hippos from Carter's!

    I mean hippos are scary, but I wouldn't count them in the stereotypical "scary" creatures.

    I clearly don't feel like working.

    ETA - saw a bunch of cute stuff in the sets as well, but I should probably work...

    I got a lot through Carters, Old Navy and Gap had some cute stuff as did Target. I will agree though that for bigger sizes it’s good to wait for baby’s physique. Newborn Fry was a Carter’s baby, then 4 months on was def an Old Navy/Gap baby.

    A is definitely a Carter's baby, but I have a bunch of ON and Gap clothes on the way because they were so darn cute. Hopefully they aren't crazy baggy.

    Yes! Also if you like the Disney stuff at all, the Jumping Beans Disney stuff is really affordable and holds up great.

    Is there some kind of toddler bouncer-jumpy thing? Kid’s too tall for his bouncer but he loves it— he wailed when we took it down.

    Probably an unpopular decision, but we got C a small indoor trampoline, and she’s still in love with it.

    kids go BONKERS for those. Legitimately the only way I can get 60% of my patients to work.

    Well sure. Kids love having Vince Carter-level hops. You know, proportionately. :lol:

    Okay party people—talk to me about double strollers. I told myself no way, kids are 3 years apart, no reason for it. Well now stroller walks are our lifeline. E loves riding in her stroller still at 2.5. I don’t think she will be strong enough to walk the whole walk by then and we don’t want to end up carrying her. When baby is itty I’m going to wear him but I don’t think I can do it for long walks as he gets bigger. Also, when I’m alone with both kids I’m thinking I will feel more comfortable if they’re locked into something.

    My friend suggested a wagon/stroller combo like this but I’m not sure.

    Anyone buy a traditional double or wagon and never use it OR get way more use than they expected?

    Is this the kind of thing I should just wait until after he’s born and see what E is like by then?

    We have a small apartment so no real place to store a double stroller. I always popped A in the carrier and pushed R in the stroller if necessary. We do have a double seater wagon we use a ton now. It is collapsible and we started using it last summer and ditched the stroller all together. Now they take turns walking outside the wagon and or riding the trike.
