We are ready to buy the next size car seat. Boo still technically fits in the infant carrier. It's made for 32 lbs and 32 inches, and he is neither. But it seems like he is almost too long. He's probably 30", and his head is almost to the top of the car seat, which is a no-no. So we are going to try and pick out a convertible car seat that should last for a long time. It's just so hard to pick one out! So many to choose from. I've found some I like, but of course they are available online only, and I like to be able to feel the material and see in the store before I buy something like that. So we are going to go shopping and see what they have in store at Target and BRU. Nathan wants to get el cheapo, but this is somethings important, our kids safety! And if we get a nice one, it might actually last a few years. Another issue we disagree on is buying two car seats. I can't see taking it in and out twice a day to give the car seat to Paulina. It is too many chances to install it incorrectly, plus it will be a pain. So I will buy one hopefully today and another one in a couple of weeks. And no, I will not buy a cheaper one for her car. It's still my kid riding in the car, and I want something nice. Also, Boo will continue to face the rear for as long as possible. It's 5 times safer according to tests. It's not that much harder to make a kid face the rear, in the correct car seat of course. So I encourage those with small children, keep facing the rear!
