UPDATED TO ADD AN EXTRA PIC:)
We switched Adalyn to a convertable Britax carseat in my car (our main family car) back in August. She was (and is) still under the weight limit for her infant carrier so we left it in Jonathan's car. On Sunday, Jonathan switched it out to install our new to us seat from the consignment sale. Adalyn hugged her owl friend bye bye when J took her baby seat out of his car. It was so sweet.
She was pretty excited about her new (clean) big girl car seat!
A few follow-ups from my last post...
I had an anonymous comment so I didn't know who to respond to, so I thought I'd write a response here. You are never supposed to use a car seat that has been in a car accident. When buying a car seat at these sales, the sellers are asked to fill out a paper and sign it saying the seat has never been in an accident. After the seat is taken in by the sale, one of the committee members checks the frame to make sure there are no visible breaks or damage. They also check to make sure the seat has not been recalled. All of these items are signed off on a paper that is with the car seat. (Other large items being sold are also checked in this same manner for recalls, etc.) You have to hope that sellers are honest.
Jonathan was putting the stroller back together after washing it all. After he got the front seat in, Adalyn decided she wanted in. He figured she'd want right back out. She stayed in it the entire time it took him to get the back seat in. Then she still didn't want out. She wasn't being pushed. Just sitting in the middle of the living room watching me vacuum and do other house chores. She loved that her sippy cup fit into a spot on the tray. About 30 to 45 minutes later she still didn't want to get out but Jonathan finally got her out because he wanted to collapse the stroller and put it away. She's just so cute. I had to take a pic of how excited she was about her new stroller.
In case you missed this comment from Jonathan on my last post, I thought I'd share it:
OK, so I don't think you quite described the crowd good enough. So to all your readers, picture this: day after Thanksgiving style shopping, right before the doors open. But the crowd is full of preggos and psycho moms (my wife included). I was scared for my life!!!
