Baxter – My 10.8 lb Bundle of Joy

Has it really already been a month since I had a baby. Geez the time flies. I figured it was high time we had a formal blog introduction, so ladies and gentlemen I give you Baxter Dabney. He was born on March 3rd tipping the scales at 10.8 lbs. Better than the 11.4 he was projected for!

Life with 2 kids is going smoothly. I could not ask for a more chill baby. Tallulah seems to be getting used to the idea of being a big sister. Chris took a month off to help out, so that has been awesome. Next week will be my first attempt at solo parenting of 2 kids so wish me luck!

As always any and all advice is appreciated. My latest dilema is about double strollers. Do I get side by side, front and back or just use the one I have and wear Baxter?

P.S. Thanks Maybe Me J for the pretty picture frames.

    Congrats! What a beautiful baby! And I love your kids' names!

    Sorry, no advice on the stroller issue. My son was five by the time we had our daughter, so we didn't need a double stroller. But, I can tell you that having two kids is so much fun! You're gonna LOVE it!!!

    beautiful!!!!! what a lovely boy.

    my kids were 15 months apart and with the stroller,I had a one back one front as the side by side appeared not to fit through some doorways. I wore my son for a while but couldn't of done without the buggy. once my daughter was old enough we got a lite stroller with a buggy board.


    A B-I-G congratulations to your entire family!!!

    We had a side by side stroller and it was great when walking outside, but doorways were a nightmare.

    Think I'd recommend carrying Baxter while you can and then buy a front to back stroller with big sister in front.

    Peace to you all,

    Oh, he is LOVELY! Well done, Mommy and Daddy! And you will be great on your own with two kiddies–you'll all have a great time.

    On the stroller issue–definitely front-back, for the door issues already mentioned. They're just easier. Plus, if little guy falls asleep in the back, big sister can still look around without disturbing him. And by the time he's where she is,

    Congratulations, Jenn! The photos are adorable. My baby arrangement was similar, with a girl first and a boy 4 years later. It's nice having one of each! 🙂

    First off congrats he is adorable! I too added a little boy to my family. My little girl also enjoys the big sister status!!! I would totally go with the side by side stroller…..Wearing is okay sometimes it is nice to be able to move around uninhibited when you have two!!! good luck i am sure you will do wonderful!!!

    What a beautiful family. Front and back worked for our family. You already carried little Baxter for 9 months give your back a break. Big sister, Tallulah, will enjoy it, too.

    What a cute guy! I had a big boy, too. 🙂

    As for the stroller, I think it depends on how much you're going to use it . . . every person I know who does a lot of walking with a double stroller swears by the side-by-side stroller; the front/back ones end up hurting your back if you have to maneuver and turn with them too much. I've used a Maclaren side-by-side and a Bob
