Or does life just keep getting more expensive? Here are two of the upcoming "necessities" in my life. :)
The Phil and Ted's sport buggy (jogger) with double seat attachment: Anyone have it? It just seems brilliant to me to not have to jog pushing something wider than most European cars. First concern is always whether the kid in back will mind his view. All I've heard is that they love it and usually fight over the back seat... apparently the peripheral view is plenty.
Other cool features: One of the seats can lay down flat for sleeping baby or car seat can attach (that one might now allow the second seat to be on at the same time- not sure.) I'm sold though. I just wish I'd bought it with Sophia so my first jogger wasn't completely wasted.
And the Nikon D40:I'm going to need some kind of education on the machine before I can work any magic I'm sure. But I'm dying to be in the gorgeous-photos-of-your-kids club, and I figure I may as well get it sooner than later so we can get our use out of it in those first months when I'm still ridiculously obsessed with snapping endless photos of my quickly changing newborn and maturing little girl. We're thinking perhaps a family Christmas present. Cross your fingers for me.
