Pimp my stroller

Mommy, I've been thinking, I need a new stroller. That little umbrella stroller you've been squeezing me into is too tight and it's just not cool.

I am a cool baby, and my ride needs to reflect that, ya' know?

Several months ago, I wrote about having stroller envy for these cool orange strollers that I kept seeing everywhere. I googled them, and found out they were Joovy strollers. I wanted one. I wanted one very badly. But they're kind of pricey.

Bob didn't seem to feel my pain on this, but then Little Elvis' umbrella stroller started getting kind of hard to buckle. And he fought us everytime we tried to put him into it. So, Bob began coming around to my way of thinking.

He even added his own wants: a stroller that can transition for more children in the future.

Again, I found a Joovy that I liked. Still pretty expensive. Then, this morning, on craigslist, I found our dream stroller. A Joovy Caboose. It's not the cool orange I envisioned, but bright red is still pretty groovy. And... we got it!!
So, I spent some of our hardearned craigslist dough on something else from craigslist. Definitely not a bad exchange if you ask me.

Little Elvis and I took our new stroller for a spin as soon as we got home this afternoon and he seemed to enjoy this new mode of travel, and he really enjoyed getting to snack and drink while Mommy pushed him to the park.

We then took it for a longer stroll when Bob got home.

Pretty happy looking boy, huh?

Ah, finally a stroller worthy of my utter coolness. Way to go Mommy!!

Very nice ride! I love it. We always used the umbrella strollers. I just loved how easy they were to take everywhere.

Love that stroller! I am also wickedly envious that you (and the rest of the world) have babies who love their strollers. My daughter has hated hers since she was about 7 months old. As a result, we use it very infrequently.

Color me jealous...we have an umbrella stroller and another stroller that worked with MR's infant seat. Neither are as cute as Little Elvis' new ride though :)

Fun stroller! Is that a seat on the back for when he is a big brother? I had one like that when I had two. It rocked!

What a rocking stroller! Little Elvis must love his stroller as much as my hunk does. Now that the weather is nice, we stroll everywhere! Hope you have fun!

Right on. I love that ride, too. The umbrella stroller is getting tight....I might have to follow suit! Craigslist rocks.
