Other than a few cute floppy hats, and those darling tiny newborn socks, I think I just made my favorite baby purchase--ever! We bought a forward facing car seat (a few months premature, but my mother's instinct said it would be fine)
There is nothing sweeter than looking in my rear view mirror to see Andrew smiling at me. He loves to adjust the arm rest, and use the cup holder. Whenever we drive past the horses by our house, we roll down the windows and he neighs at them. We have opened up a whole new world for him, and it's so fun to see his big beautiful eyes soaking up the new world around him.
I must admit that my rear view mirror is rarely at a safe setting where I can see the road, it's typically framing Andrew, so I can see him dance to "Party Rock" and sing to the "Jeep, Jeep, Jeep, Cheap, Cheap, Cheap" commercial!
