Baby Shopping: Almost Better than the Actual Baby

I have a thing about bags. Some of you know this already. I try to keep it under control but it’s hard really. They call to me and ask me to take them home. I have a dollar limit that I don’t like to exceed at any given purchase and I try to only buy something about once a quarter. But a new baby means a new diaper bag and I found the exact one that I wanted today on SALE! The best part, it’s a sling so it’s totally rocker-dad friendly. Stephen won’t be embarrassed to have it on. Here’s a photo:

The other very cool thing that I bought today was a hotsling. My sister-in-law turned me on to them. I was very interested in them as they are fit to you, as opposed to a system of pulleys and ratchets that annoy you into pitching it across the room. I had one of those with Eli and never used it because by the time I got him in and adjusted correctly, I needed to take him out for whatever reason.

I was going to buy one and then got sidetracked and then they put the one I wanted on sale and then I got sidetracked. So I thought I’d go to the local store that carries them to check them out and of course, they didn’t have my size. (That didn’t stop the saleslady from trying to sell me one two sizes too small though.)

So when I got home I did some internet browsing and SCORE! I got the one I wanted at another online baby retailer for the sale price AND free shipping. Here’s a picture of it:

Can’t wait to try and sport the sling, the baby, and the sling backpack at the same time. I ought to look like a Sherpa when I have all that going on…
