Baby shopping! Danielle and I went to Babies R Us this weekend. Contrary to thier name, they don't actually have any babies for sale. We did get some ideas for things to add to our baby registry. Dani and I decided on a infant car seat and a stroller. Considering safety ratings, weight, recommendations and our own tests, we opted for the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio car seat and the compatible stroller, the Aria MT. Unfortunately - they are $199 a piece.
Well, sleuth shopper to the rescue. I watched eBay and found alot of people reselling new Peg Perego items. I caught a car seat auction and swooped in at the last minute with a winning bid of $102.50. And then... I found a coupon for $15 off $100 or more on eBay. Total cost with shipping: $108.40 That's less than we would have paid if we'd bought the Graco SnugRideII at the store on Sunday.

So now Jeffrey has a ride home from the hospital. Now if I can only get my butt in gear and get his room finished...

Edit 11/16: We visited Simon's Baby Furniture this past Sunday and met with Joseph in the stroller & car seat department. He was very nice, and also let us know that they have free certified car seat installation. Anyway, he talked us out of the Aria MT stroller. It's overpriced for what it really offers and although it's very light - a 15lb stroller won't make that much of a difference. He showed us 2 by Zooper: the Waltz and the Swing. We're going to be in Pittsburgh next weekend and we'll stop by a baby store there to see if we can find one in stock that we like.

I know! I was expecting to see some babies in blister-packs lining the shelves when we went shopping for the brother-in-law's soon to be. Instead it was just a bunch of pastel colored stuff.

And the book section... what? no trendy celebrity children's books? Only the standards? I thought that a little odd.
