Sunday morning we got together with friends for brunch, and it was really exciting to see them and their little girl. My friend has only a week or so before her baby is born, so that definitely got us thinking about our own little baby's arrival, and we decided to spend the rest of the afternoon trying to figure out what type of glider/rocking chair to get. To be honest, the husband and I were pretty overwhelmed going into this whole project. I wanted something that would look nice and the husband was more focused on making sure that it would be comfortable (which I think we would both appreciate more at 2 am in the morning). We also want to make sure we don't waste our money and get something that will actually last and comfort Baby J.
Awhile ago, I saw this glider from West Elm and thought it would be a great fit.
Next, we went to Laz Boy, because growing up my parents used them and they always talk about what a lifesaver they were. They may not look the nicest, but there is no beating them for comfort. We sat in this one, and it was comfortable, but it seemed too deep which would make getting in and out with a baby difficult. I also had a hard time dealing with the price and the fact that I really am not crazy about how it looks. The size also seemed huge!
|We resisted buying this little turkey outfit, but there is no scenario that Baby J won't be wearing this come Thanksgiving.|
We decided to head home, and then I read reviews and called my mom to get her advice. In the end, we decided to purchase the chair we liked from Babies R Us, even though it doesn't recline, because we both found it comfortable and like the way it looked. The fact that it is very compact will be really useful in our apartment...especially considering the fact that we still don't know where we will put it. I'm so relieved to have that finally picked out and purchased!
