Our sweet baby boy turned 9 months old on Wednesday and since he is now weighing in at 21 lbs and about 30" long (I'm guessing because we haven't been to the doctor yet), he has outgrown his infant car seat. Thankfully, my dad and step-mom (Grandpa & Granny) were very sweet to us and bought Thomas a front facing car seat about a month ago. It is a great car seat and should last until he is old enough to not need a car seat or booster seat. Yes, I'm a little sad because he is growing up and moving him to the new seat makes it very obvious that he will soon be a toddler. However, Thomas is very excited about seeing everything - especially Mama and Daddy. He has become much more vocal in the car now and we have even had to tell him to not be so loud! The only drawback of the new car seat is he isn't able to nap as well in the car. I have a feeling it won't be too long and he will figure it out! I've included some pictures of my sweet baby (at least for a little while longer) in his new seat.
