I just bought this Peg Perego Pliko P3 stroller. It's a 2010 model (the 2012 model is the P4 model). Full retail price is $329 but I got it on sale for $199. The P4 is even more expensive. Reasons I love this stroller: 1. It is light, 2. Baby doesn't have to be able to sit up to use it, 3. It has a rear footboard where DD can ride if she won't walk (she's almost 4 and I think she's too big to get a double stroller), 4. The steering is terrific, 5. The handles adjust to let both me (5'2") and DH (6') push comfortably (as in he can't believe how easy it is to push and is amazed he is not kicking the stroller as he walks). I have been searching the net for a low price and this is the lowest i have seen. Here's the link if you are interested: http://www.albeebaby.com/peg-perego-2010-pliko-p3-stroller-in-pepper.html
I am borrowing a snap and go to drop off DD at school and run little errands while this LO is in the infant carseat.
I hope I didn't jinx myself by making such a big purchase so early, but I am pretty excited. Last night I had a dream that I was in labor and it was too real. What big purchases have you made?
