What a Hoot!

As I've mentioned previously, I'm scooping up cute owl things for the baby. About two weeks ago, I found that Graco has a new pattern available for their gear called "Little Hoot." They have a travel system (stroller/car seat combo) a travel play pen and a high chair in the pattern. Plus it's got a hint of blue, which matches what we're doing in the baby's room. Clearly Graco has been stalking me. I was so excited that I called practically everyone I know to tell them about it, and the minute I went home I started a Target Registry just so I could add these things to the list. I even went into Target on Monday with my sister specifically to show her the cuteness that is the owl pattern.

Monday evening at about 6:00, Aaron and I heard someone clomping up the stairs to our house, then a loud knock on our door. It was the UPS man, and since neither of us was expecting a delivery, and what he had dropped off made a very loud "THUMP" when he sat it on the porch, we were very anxious to see what had arrived. We opened the door to find a giant box containing........ THE ONE AND ONLY Graco Little Hoot Travel System! Courtesy of Fran and Randy.

It's sooooo cute in person, and the stroller was really easy to unfold and then collapse (after I made Aaron figure out how to collapse it. I mean, he's the Papa. That's his job, right?) Ringo even gave it his kitty seal of approval - it had been out of the box for about 5 seconds before he curled up in the bottom basket. (I have really cute pictures as proof, but I'm having trouble getting them downloaded, so I'll have to add them later.) Everything's back in the box now to prevent the inevitable onslaught of kitty hair, but I can't until we get to use it!
