Goodbye tiny baby stage

Last week was bittersweet - I packed up some of the baby gear for younger babies - bouncy seat, Boppy pillow, and some tummy time floor mats. I can't believe that Evelyn is getting so big. I have so many fond memories of her in that seat and nursing her with that Boppy. It was also crazy to think that some day we'll be taking that stuff out again when we have another child. That whole concept is crazy!

And, since she was trying to sit up in her reclining type infant carrier seat, we got this for Evelyn!
(Hmmm...we have the bad habit of keeping the tv on a lot and not even knowing what is on because we are not watching it. That was occurring in this pic...it looks like our show had a guy with a nice mullet! :-)
Buying another seat brought more decisions that I hate making. Spend $80 on a Graco seat, or $270 on a Britax??? We opted for el cheapo Graco. I think it should be fine. What is so great about Britax anyway?

She seems to like the new seat. She did have her head slightly cocked when she fell asleep in it; but, I have seen kids in much more uncomfortable sleeping positions!

Wow - she is growing and fast too. I think you made the right decision with that car seat! Graco is still a great name and one you can trust. At what age (how many months) did she start using her play mats?

Gosh, they do indeed grow so fast! My oldest has been ready to be in a booster for a while now but I still keep her in a carseat. Not ready for her to grow up. boohoo.
