A Whole New World

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.

Wow he really does look like a big boy in that new seat! So fun!

Great pictures! He is growing up for sure! I love that lock of hair that falls on his forehead, and the dimpled smiles too. Fun!

By the way, the pictures of you all on Mother's Day were so precious. You look fabulous! Glad you could celebrate the day with your mom. I also read your post about your grandma on the girltalk blog. That was really well written and such a sweet tribute to her. I know you missed her this Mother's Day.

Thanks for the info. I had always heard or maybe misheard it was 20lbs OR 1 year, instead of 20 lbs AND 1 year. We will definitely change it until at least August, but after reading those links, we will probably wait until he is at least 30lbs.

It is great to have a resource of people to assist us! I loved the articles and I am going to share them with a friend of mine as well.
