Big Girl Seat!

We finally made the change to a convertible car seat!  I have mixed feelings about this change.  I love, love, love the ease of an infant seat.  Clicking Kate directly into our UppaBaby Vista was so easy!  And made napping while out and about even easier! 

Kate still fits in her infant seat but is pushing the height limit.  She is probably 29-29.5 inches now and the seat only goes up to 30 inches.  We are no where near close to the 30 pound weight limit but, I'm starting to learn that my long, skinny baby will most likely outgrow height requirements before weight limits!

I think Kate is a fan of her new seat!  Or maybe she was just a fan of having her grandparents in town this weekend which meant momma and Bebe were riding in the backseat with her!  We'll see how she does in the new sea,t without backseat company, this afternoon!

I am very impressed with the quality of the Recaro ProRide!  It is so sturdy, installed very tightly (it doesn't wiggle at all), and appears comfortable to Kate!  I also really love that it has side impact protection!  Added bonus?  It's pink!  They are currently on sale on Amazon (20% off) so, hurry and order yours soon if you want one!


I have so much catching up to do - donor search updates (no donor yet but we are making progress), Bebe and PawPaw's visit, first birthday party planning, and so much more!

The interesting thing about car seats is even though most people focus on the weight limits, most children will outgrow a car seat for length far before they outgrow it for height. And not just infant seats, convertible seats too.

I love the pink color of Kate's seat. Glad she likes it!

I loved the easiness of the infant seat too. They're growing too fast!
