Another one of our friends is pregnant! This time next year, our hood will be literally crawling with babies. To celebrate Erika's impending explosion joy, we had a little “pregnancy party.” We kept it super-casual since everyone's busy with the holidays, but had a fun time celebrating with Erika. She got to hang out with Some Boy for a bit to see what she can expect down the line. Hopefully that didn't scare her off too much.

Britax, Xlear, Baby Plus and Snuggle Buddies sent over some fun products for us to try out, and we passed a bunch of that on to Erika to give her a jump start on the registry process. During the stressful (and nauseous) first trimester, I found it was a nice distraction to get gifts and hand-me-downs from friends. I'm a big planner, so being on top of stuff like that makes a big difference to me. Erika particularly loved her new Britax B-Safe Infant Car Seat, which fits babies all the way from 4 to 30 pounds.

We've been using the Britax B-Agile Stroller ourselves and LOVE it. The infant car seat straps into it, but it also works well for older babies and toddlers. It gives Some Boy lots of room to squirm around since he's not so keen on sitting in the car seat anymore. Best of all, it folds up shockingly small to fit into our tiny trunk. We took it on a recent road trip and it left us lots of room for our bags and stuff.

Erika and Ryan are hoping for a baby girl. Some Boy is hoping that I'll stop putting princess dolls near his face.
