Ok… so it is actually yellow! LOL!
Yesterday at Alyssa’s appointment she weighed 19.4 lbs on an empty stomach with no clothes on. So, after weighing things for a bit, I asked Neil if we could put he in my mom’s car forward facing. She has been rear facing thus far, and really even if she had been ‘average’ size we probably would have kept her that way until at least 18 months old. After reading up on car seat safety it is amazing how much better protected kids are facing the back. That being said, we cut our teensy 2 year old a little slack when grandma came to pick her up yesterday. Thank goodness, because although sports cars have directions for car seats… I don’t think people actually do it! HA! As hard as it was to get in forward facing, I don’t want to think about what a pain it would have been flipped! Ah well, we got it, and she looked all kinds of grown up with her little feet dangling over the sides 🙂 .
First forward facing ride, in a sports car, going for an overnight trip to grandma’s house… yes… our baby is definately turning into a little girl :-*
