Today is the day. We are moving Mac out of his infant car seat and into a big boy (rear-facing obviously) car seat! And I'm a little emotional about it. So many changes in the last two weeks and this is just another thing showing me my baby is growing up.
One last time in his baby seat:
We moved Mac into Korri's Diono Radian and over to the passenger side (it reclines too much to be behind the driver), Korri into Finn's Britax Frontier behind the driver and Finn into a Graco Turbobooster (Safety Surround) in the third row. Of course, Korri doesn't understand why she can't be in the third row, too, but aside from the fact that they would be constantly fighting, there honestly isn't room for her seat and Finn's in the third row (darn Town and Country safety latches!).
We will have this configuration for the next two to three years (we turned Finn forward facing at three and Korri at three and a half) and then we'll have to see what the next transition will be.
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
