I miss-calculated a couple of weeks back and thought my pregnancy was one week farther than it was. I was so annoyed when I realized that I had 8 weeks left and not 7. But time went by and now I only have 6 weeks! I am so excited. I want this baby here already so we can get to know him. I feel like he already has a little personality and I can't wait to find out what it is like. I have a short list of "must-haves" that I really want for this baby (and Jeremy has agreed to get). The top thing on my list is a running stroller. And not just any old run of the mill running stroller. I want a BOB Ironman. I want it so bad I dream about it. I daydream and night dream about taking my baby on long glorious runs or on short walks together so we can bond, but recently my dream has had a wet blanket dropped on it. During my recent spurts of research on strollers I have found a lot of people agree that a baby shouldn't be pushed around in strollers until they are 6 months! On the other hand, I have also read different blogs/forums where women have claimed to have started running with their babies as soon as 2 weeks. There seems to be a big difference between 2 weeks and 6 months. I was orginally thinking 2 months would ba a good time to start running with the little tyke, but now I am not quite sure. What do you ladies (or gentleman) think about this? Do you think that 2 weeks is too early (I personally do, but I have never had a baby before) do you think it is necessary to wait until they are 6 months?
I have included a picture of the BOB just for you to enjoy. *sigh* isn't it amazing: )
