Movin' on up...

At our 9-month visit, when our Pediatrician "recommended" sleep training, she also hinted that it was about time we transitioned Mercer out of his infant car seat and into a big boy car seat.
And we dragged our feet a little, because that infant seat is just so damn convenient.  You can switch it between cars, you can pop it in a stroller, it fits perfectly in an airplane seat...We loved it.  But last week, we realized that while Mercer is WAY shy of the weight limit (he's 18 lbs / weight limit is 30), he was, in fact, pushing the limit on the recommended height maximum (30 inches).  So much so, that yesterday, I noticed  that his feet were literally hanging over the edge of the infant carrier.  So, the "transition" was forced upon us.
Big thanks to his Daddy for installing both seats into our respective cars.  Vrooooommmm.....................
