I finally got it!!

This is the kind of shopper I am. I look around, take a bunch off the shelves. Look some more. Put them all back on the shelf and leave with nothing! Its gotten much worse since having Jax. I have to look around at all my options to find the best one that will suit his special needs.
I have been looking for a double stroller since before Arina came home.
I initially decided on a double jogger. I have a jogger right now for Jax, and it works really well. But I haven't been able to find one that has everything I want without spending 500-600 dollars. I don't want to spend that much, this stroller will only be for when I'm by myself going to appointments with both Rugg-rats.
Then I remembered how easy jogger strollers tip over, and I couldn't find one that I thought would not be too wide. So then I went back to the front/back stroller. Thank goodness I took Jax to Babies R Us and put him in, because he was way too tall! Yes, my son thats the size of a two year old was too tall. For all the front/back ones.
I guess that was an easy way to narrow it down to a jogger. So then I went back to finding one to fit Jax needs. I found one that I hoped would work. The problem is I had to order it online, so I can't put Jax in it and try it out.
But it came tonight, and I'm hopeful that it will work out great!

I left the tray off Jax side. (I'm glad I had that option) Because it would be hard to get him in and out, and he doesn't need a tray. But the tray will come in handy with the princess. A couple other things that drew me to this stroller....the separate canopies. I can already tell thats going to be really nice! The parent cupholders, and it was one of the lightest and skinniest. The only negative I see so far is the way you put the seats down is kind of weird and doesn't seem to sturdy. But the real test is how easy it is for me to maneuver at the doctors office!
I'm excited to try it out!


Oh by the way, its the Instep, Safari jogger. Online from Walmart or Target for 160.00

They look so cute riding side by side! I have been following your blog for a little while and I have to say that there is something different to Jax since Arina came into his life, I can see it in the pictures...he just seems to look better than he ever has in some way that I can't put my finger on. Do you notice a difference, just curious?

It looks like a keeper. I agree, Jax has a twinkle in his eye ever since his sister arrived.

I LOVE it! Very cute. Sure beats a $700+ handicapped stroller price. I hope it suits their needs and that you LOVE it. :)

I saw the stroller on your post on FB and wow it does look big, maybe more so because of the pointy bit in front. I do hope getting in the door at the doctors chamber isn't a problem. But the 2 of them look so cute, you're going to get stopped alot with everyone that's going oh and ahh at those two precious faces!
