Finally A Double Stroller

We (and by "we", I mean "I") have been debating and debating about a stroller. I couldn't decide if we needed a triple (with the twins and Connor) or whether a double would suffice. Then, I couldn't decide whether we needed a side-by-side or a tandem stroller. Once I decided on tandem, then I had to decide whether we wanted a stroller we could use for toddlers or if an infant one would suffice for now...So Many Choices.

In the twin world, the consensus is pretty much that the snap n go is the best for infants in terms of bulkiness because there are no seats attached to it. The one we had for Connor had the toddler seat attached and then you could put the infant seat on it. The problem with this was that it makes for the most bulky double stroller ever and I can tell you right now that there is no way I'm going to be trying to set one of those up by myself. For us, we're hoping too, that it will be perfect because we actually have two different infant seats (yeah...try finding an infant double stroller that will work with two different brands of infant seats).

So after months and months of searching, we (and by "we" I mean "I") decided on the one below:
I tried to find a photo that also had seats in them to show you what it will look like...
 Ours won't look quite as cute as the above one because we have two different infant seats (with two different patterns)...but you get the point.

And in answer to your question about why we have two different infant seats (you know you were wondering!). We already had the Graco infant seat that we used with Connor (plus 2 extra bases - one for my mom and one for Mr. Howard's car) and we tried to purchase the same one. But guess what? They discontinued it (not for safety reasons or anything, but because they came out with a new model). Right around that time, my sister asked me if we needed an infant carseat because her friends had a peg perego they didn't need anymore (their last baby just moved to a toddler one). Thus, we have one Graco Infant Snugride and a Peg Perego.

We'll have to keep you updated as to whether or not we love it and, of course, whether it's going to work, but for $94 we're hoping it will be perfect! And I feel so much more relieved about this. We'll now have something to take them home from the hospital in.

What stroller are you going to use after they outgrow the carriers? Also sells carseat covers that are wonderful, in case you are interested!
