Today was a big day. The day of the big boy car seat installation appointment!
Like I said before, Jack is simply getting crazy heavy in his carrier, so we went ahead and purchased our next car seat. I did my research, asked around, and decided on a Britax Marathon.
It got great crash ratings and Britax is a well respected brand...not to mention I found one on SALE! Woohoo! Because these suckers are expensive!!
Anyways, he's not quite at the weight limit of the carrier car seat, so the new one has been sitting in our living room for about a month now. Being the good mom that I am, right after the car seat arrived, I called the car seat check people at Cook's Children's and set up my installation appointment, because the last thing I wanted to do is to install the seat incorrectly and, God forbid, be in an accident and Jack not be as safe as possible.
Now, I can be pretty ambitious so one day I decided that I would just go ahead and install the thing. I mean, how hard could it be? Long story short, that was a big time fail...these are a little more complicated looking than our current car seat base, which is super easy! To many straps and tethers!
So Jack rode happily in his carrier car seat for a few more weeks.
