Very cool news Chris.  Soon you'll have a "real" excuse to stop at TRU all the time.  ;)

Congrats Chris,
   Like many others we have both gone through the same situation. When your new baby is born you'll cherish your child even more than you thought possible. Having a baby will change your life for the better. One thing I found extremely helpful was having a baby backpack. A stroller can be kind of large/limiting at times, but when you put your child on your back you can go anywhere. Plus you'll kind of feel like Luke training on Dagobah.  ;D  ;D ;D

This is what I told my wife I wanted...either that or a chest harness.  I did tell my wife I want to get a 3 wheeled jogging stroller so I can take the kiddo along with me...maybe even let the dog tag along with us.

Avoid doing back flips and climbing vines though....trust me.

Congratulations Chris - there is nothing like it.  Try to not show them any of the SW movies until they're at least 6 months old.   ;)

my wife and I have taken Lucas to the State Fair here in MN in this and gotten alot of compliments on it. It is really nice and comes with a shade to keep direct sunlight off of him. Just don't wear necklaces, or have long hair as the kid will grab it and pull.

Used to have all 3. A nice hiking baby-backpack, long-hair for my daughter to steer me by, and a necklace for her to pull to get me to stop moving, her ideas as a toddler, not mine.  ::)

Eh, regardless of hair length those little fingers seem to get a hold.  I clip my hair and my 22 month old seems to get purchase just fine.
