....from my trip to the Bahamas. Our first flight was delayed an hour, so we missed our second flight. We were on standby for another flight and got on, but then the people who actually had the seats showed up as the door closed and they made us get off. Didn't know they could do that if the flight was closed, but apparently they can. So we had to take another flight to Lexington (one hour east of Louisville) and drive home with a rental car.
Still waiting on our luggage to arrive in Louisville so we can go pick it up at the airport, since they couldn't get it on our flight to Lexington. Quite a day has been had.

Tiny Love has announced its first entry in the baby gear category with the new Gymini Bouncer. For ages birth and up, Tiny Love combines the popularity of its multiple award-winning line of Gymini activity mats with the smart solution of activity arches as a positive feature in today’s newest bouncer.
The arches allow for multiple positions and ease when getting baby in and out of the seat. Three hanging toys can be moved along the soft arches for different views and play. The additional access brings the parent/caregiver closer to the child for better eye-to-eye and physical bonding. The Gymini Bouncer features activated lights and music with a take-along electronic crab that clips onto the soft arches for both side and front views to engage the baby during play time. With the easy on/easy off feature, the musical crab can be moved to a stroller for all day use.
I don't have a date for its release yet, but I will hopefully know soon.
Peg Perego has a new accessory for the Skater stroller. The Jumper Seat turns all Skate strollers into doubles by attaching at the base. It can work with both the stroller seat or the Primo Viaggio attached and it can also be used with the Universal Umbrella accessory to create a canopy. It will hold a child up to 40 lbs.
Look for it in late July.

Baby Bjorn has released its newest carrier, the Comfort Carrier. It's made for older babies 3 months to 2 years (or 13-31 lbs). A newborn can't use it, but it can be used much longer than their other carriers.
It has a hip strap to help distribute the weight of the baby across the parent’s hips, instead of just across the shoulders. It retails for about $200 and so far this is the only color I have seen. Magic Beans has it in stock.
