Yes, I got the black and silver one, but I'm sure this print would be the same if you are looking at the cowmooflage. My carseat says 4/2012, and yes it comes with the base as well. Very nice carseat! You will be impressed. Best infant/preemie insert I have ever seen! Provides a lot of support and love love love that the adjustment of the straps is a simple handle and requires no re-threading!
