Forward Facing

Last Monday we finally turned Paxton’s car seat around. We’ve kept him rear facing for as long as possible because we think that is the safest way for little ones to ride. However, his little legs just kept getting longer and he was looking quite uncomfortable riding rear facing. {He’s around 25 pounds so well over the recommended weight limit for forward facing!}

It’s amazing how having him facing forward makes him seem so much bigger. He just looks like such a big boy! 

Enjoying facing forward! His first trip forward facing actually was in daddy’s truck! John David put Paxton’s car seat in his truck so the two of them could go to the dump. Watching him drive off with his daddy facing forward was one of the cutest things I’d seen in awhile. He just seemed so happy and like it was such an adventure! Precious!!!

I love being able to turn around and see him! It’s much easier to reach him and talk to him.

It’s amazing how fast they go from itty bitty babies to big boys!

Just think, soon we’ll be adding another car seat to the back seat! How exciting!!

    We kept Lily rear facing until her little legs were all squished up, and I remember the first time we turned her around – she just smiled the whole time looking around and enjoying all the sights! I can't believe how big Paxton is getting! He is so handsome!

    I've read your blog for a while and love watching Paxton grow! I'm not sure if you read this blog: http://amysfinerthings.com/

    she actually has a car seat post today and the new recommendation from the AAP is 2 years before forward facing. http://www.cnn.com/2011/HEALTH/03/21/car.seat.gui

    much better to sit criss-cross applesauce and have a broken leg than a broken a neck. :-/.
