So I had a $10 off for every $50 you spend on a car seat at Babies R Us so we decided to go ahead and get Little Dude his new seat.
We were torn between the Graco SnugRide 35 and the Chicco KeyFit 30. Went with the KeyFit 30 because I kept hearing great things about them and a friend of mine knows a car seat tech and he said that he could always get a better fit in my kind of car with a Chicco than a Graco.
I'm so excited!! This is our first major purchase for him and it's making it feel SO much more real!!
We got this one:
The not fitting into shopping carts is a HUGE complaint with it for a lot of people, but I was never able to do that with DD's Graco anyway. I mean, I physically could get it to go into the shopping cart, but I'm only like 5'3"-5'4" anyway, so when the infant carrier was in the shopping cart I couldn't see where I was going lol So obviously that's a totally moot point for me
Cute seat! I always put DD's Graco seat in the shopping cart.. and at 5'2", it was a challenge seeing over / around it!

We got one of these from family this weekend! I do feel that this is a big step in getting ready for baby.
Our is green and brown, but I do like the orangey one, too.
