What about BOB?

We got 'im.  That's what!  My mom's been chompin' at the bit wanting to get something special for Sam.  As soon as the hub and I got our act together and figured out what all to register for (mostly anyway - pretty sure we'll never figure it ALL out), Mom wanted to know what she and Dad could get us.  Answer: The BOB Revolution CE Stroller!

We registered for it at BRU, but Amazon had the best price currently.  Always check Amazon!  Sometimes their free shipping and no sales tax (in most states) alone can make a huge difference.  Honestly, if I could only visit one retail website for the rest of my life, I'm pretty sure I'd pick Amazon.   I was tempted to do a baby registry on Amazon - they've got some products that neither BRU or BuyBuy Baby carry.  But I think we're pretty well covered!

We decided on the "CE" version - which has significantly smaller back wheels than the standard SE version.  I read that the only real reason to get the SE instead was for really, really rough terrain like vigorous hiking trails.  Um... I don't really see myself ever strolling up and down vigorous hiking trails.  With or without Sam in tow.  CE it is!

Now we haven't actually seen our BOB just yet... it arrived yesterday at my parents' house, so we'll get it tomorrow.  Can't wait to check it out!  Pretty sure Sam's gonna love it!  Thanks, Mom and Dad!

I am an Amazon freak myself.... if Amazon doesn't have it, I don't need it!

Very nice! My good friend has this stroller and loves it!

I definitely want to get a jogging stroller at some point, but Husband read something that said we should hold off until he's a year old (so his little body is better equiped to handled all the bouncing) so he doesn't even want us to have one in the house until then (so I won't be tempted, I suppose). Oh well, I told him he'll have to be willing to watch the little guy while I'm out trying to get my running back in gear!

Oh, we got the Bob Revolution SE and used it for the first time today with our 13-day-old son! You are in for a treat! We love this stroller, and we live on Capitol Hill in DC, which has treacherous, bumpy, brick sidewalks, so we knew we would need a sturdy stroller. Make sure to buy the infant car seat adapter so you don't have to wait until your son is 3 months old to ride in the BOB. With the adapter, you can use the stroller right away. Enjoy it!

Create a registry at Amazon anyway. You get 10% off most items left on the registry after the due date, or something like that. Definitey 10%.
