16 weeks already

It is so hard to believe I am already 16 weeks pregnant.  Everyone kept telling me so much changes when you hit 12 weeks so I really looked forward to it but truthfully it feels like nothings has changed at all since I'm still barely showing and still throwing up.  It all worth it though and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

We have started shopping for the key pieces for baby already and today was devoted to finding a rocker.  I really want a comfortable one that can someday be used in another area of our house.  I loved the shape and feel of this one (we would do green cording) but the back wasn't high enough for it comfortable to rest in while rocking or feeding.

We also loved the next one but it was much more expensive because it was a recliner and I don't see myself using the extra feature enough to justify the extra money.

I think we settled on the following one because it has almost everything we are looking for.

We will order in the the following fabric though so it will have a feel much more like the first one than the way it looks now in the current fabric.  

If anyone had a best chair I'd love to hear what you think or if you've found a great brand of rockers like these that are under $1,000 I'd love to hear about them.  We are trying to stay away from the babies r us ones though because the reviews are so bad (if you've loved yours though and had no problems let me know).
One thing we already bought was our stroller.  So many of our friends have the bob and love it so it was a no brainer when we realized we could use our once yearly REI 20% off coupon to buy it.  We even got to try it out with our goddaughter today at the park.

My husband decided it needed to be able to handle anything including bouldering.

SO exciting! We went with a neutral glider, as well, so it could be used in another nursery or somewhere else in the house. We went with the tryp recliner. I think it is the one you featured. Ty really wanted a recliner. Hopefully, it will be here in another month. They take SO long to order. We got ours from Buy Buy Baby. If you sign up for their e-mails they will send you a 20% off coupon that doesn't have any restrictions.

We have a Best chair and love it. Seriously worth every penny. And for the amount of time either me or the husband has slept in it on those looong nights with a restless baby i am super glad we got the recliner.

For some reason, my original comment didn't post. We have a Best chair in our living room. A different model than the one you chose because ours reclines, but the back of it is the same and it is seriously the most comfortabe chair I've ever sat in. Would you mind sharing the model name? I'd love to order a glider for our new baby's room. Ours is so comfy, I'm sure that one will be too!

We have the Best Chair glider in our nursery and it's really comfortable. When we got it delivered, it is smaller than I expected, but I still love it.
