The babymobile

We’ve been planning this for a while, and waiting for the right time to pounce, since we were in a good position financially, but the other day, we finally said “adieu” to Marti’s Altima Coupe, which wasn’t exactly well suited to transporting a small person, and we got ourselves a good deal on a new Volkswagen Tiguan.

We really liked its safety features, the extra room for transporting Ellie and her “stuff”, and the panoramic sunroof, so that Ellie can look at the birds and the stars.

Week 1 Baby Essentials

Our baby registry

In a few months, Marti and I are expecting our first baby, a little girl. So we put together a baby registry for people who want to help us get all the stuff we need.

I seriously had no idea just how much stuff you need, and I’m a practical person! So, if you feel so compelled, feel free to buy us something from our registry.
