End of an era

Good bye baby bucket :( J just finished installing Joel's big boy car seat. At not quite 6 months, we figured it was about time to move him up for a few reasons... he's a big boy and is close to reaching one, if not both of the limits for his bucket (22 lbs or 29"). Plus, my shoulder has been giving me grief after lugging around 25-30 lb of baby + bucket for the last little while.

We chose the Graco My Ride 65 car seat for a few reasons. First, it's a recommended buy on Consumer Reports, and second, it was on sale at Sears ($159!). More importantly though, it can stay rear-facing to 40lbs, and then forward-facing to 65lbs, some of the best weight limits (for rear-facing anyway) around, especially for an affordable seat.

Hopefully Joel likes this car seat as much as he seems to love the bucket seats, because he's going to be in it for quite a while...
