Baby Preperation!

One problem with our stroller...where will I put my coffee? My mom and I were so proud that we were able to put together the stroller on the day it arrived. But no one (and I mean no one) has been able to attach the cup holder to it! So for now it is sitting IN the stroller where our newborn will be very soon. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear them!
We love our stroller! I can't wait to be off bed-rest so Shyla and I can take Pancake for her much deserved walks around the neighborhood. We did a lot of research on strollers and carseats and chose this one because the car seat can accomodate a baby up to 30 pounds and it fits into this walking stroller (shown below) as well as the jogging stroller that will help me prepare for the November half-marathon.

I think we are as prepared as we can be for the adventure that we are about the embark upon: parenthood! Here is my suitcase. I keep telling Stevie he needs to pack some warm clothes...he probably won't and he will freeze and I will have no sympathy for him.

I like that your dog's name is Pancakes. That rules.

I still think that you should just carry the cupholder

Hi Kendra! So your Mom gave me permission to stalk you on your new blog (haha) but I'm breaking the #1 stalker rule already and commenting. :oP A friend of mine has a similar stroller (or maybe the same one.. not sure), anyway, the cup holder snaps on to either of the bars that come straight up from the back wheels above where the mesh basket attaches.. You have to push the bottom part of the holder on first for it to flex open. I hope that works for you too, if it doesn't then I'm out of ideas. :o)

I LOVE that you started a blog Kendra, so I can oogle over your baby when I can't see her, and listen to all your great stories! I wonder about the cupholder...perhaps it is really for the baby? Oh yeah, she won't drink coffee yet...or be able to even grab her own bottle! Funny story, once we moved into the forward facing seat (Soren that is), he has a little cup holder that is supposed to attach on the side, only it is the VERY side that is next to the door! So, it can't attach! I like your family's idea of just carrying it. That would be cute and draw lots of attention as you push your stroller one-handed, then ask for help to take your coffee out!
