Ever since we've had a few baby showers and started to get out baby stuff, Brantley has been very interested in all of it. His "Baby Boy" Cabbage Patch doll has tried out a lot of the stuff, even getting a new diaper and onesie! We'll come in the living room and Percy the Polar Bear is gently swinging in the swing, napping. It's been fun watching him explore all the "stuff."
One of the things we've done, since we've really not had to buy much (thank goodness for the second boy!), is upgrade the items we know we'll use a lot. We upgraded the carseat/stroller combo (love our new Chicco), and also the baby backpack. We had one with Brant, that went to Japan with us, along with lots of other places. But I couldn't tell you where it got to, belonging to Jeremy and Carla, it got passed to other babies in the family. Catching a great sale at REI, Brantley got us a great Kelty pack, so we are set for our hikes and trips this summer (can be used when Henry can hold up his head). Brantley, of course, immediately had to try it out!!
