^ THOSE CHEEKS! ^
its obvious that C is no longer a fan of his bucket infant seat. he cries EVERY TIME we have to strap him in no matter what his mood was like 5 seconds prior and i hate that. for all of us. we have a trip coming up and were driving to chicago, so we started to think about switching to a convertible seat.
is mama ready for that? no way.
will our baby be happier in it? probably.
this weekend we headed over to our trusty besties over at baby grand to start exploring.
i love them mucho.
we went in thinking we'd get the diono but stayed open minded because i have seen how the maxi cosi pria works before and liked that too. then gina showed us two more. the recaro and the snugli. ultimately, it came down to the recaro or the snugli for us, for a few different reasons - but those were our favorite. and my husband chose the snugli so we went with that one! i love when he has an opinion on baby gear or really anything and i usually end up agreeing so its an easy choice :)
the way this baby installs is PERFECTION. it is so easy!
the seat itself is super plush - its memory foam! C was happy and didn't make a single fuss when we were testing out all of these seats.
i am a little nervous about making the switch and no longer being able to click his sleepy self with the bucket seat in the stroller when were grocery shopping or running errands (which is EXACTLY what he did yesterday) but we'll figure it out and make do! right after i have a mini panic attack about him being on the side of the car instead of the middle. which comes after the panic attack about how fast time is going.
i know he'll be happier in our 7+ hour drive to chicago.
i can not believe how big my baby is getting!
i swear it feels like yesterday that i was installing his bucket seat at 31 weeks pregnant!
on to bigger adventures!
