Carseats...

Hello again!! We have been out of commission because we have been moving, traveling, and going everywhere! We have been busy to say the least. After we moved we all came down with the flu and then bronchitis which lasted for about two weeks (I'm not kidding). Then we went on a trip to Arizona with Geoffery's company which was a much needed vacation. Grant stayed with my parents. We took absolutely no pictures because we forgot our camera. But all we did is had a relaxing day at the spa and shopped like crazy! It was WONDERFUL and the best part is that the company paid for EVERYTHING! Finally life is back to normal and now I get to start planning Grant's and Geoffery's birthdays. Geoffery's birthday is on Monday and Grant's is March 6th, but we are celebrating it next weekend. I'll definitely take pictures and post. I've lost the computer cord that goes from the camera to the computer and our camera is dead, so that's why I haven't posted. I promise to be better.

On a different note, it is time for Grant to get a new car seat and I would like to enlist the help of you guys to help me decide which one to get for him. Geoffery has convinced himself that the Britax car seat is the one we need because he heard it from one of his friends that he "has to buy it so that your kid will sleep." It's funny because if I would have told him that it was the best one and then how much it costs, he would have told me I was crazy! But because he's heard it from someone else, he doesn't care about the price. Which is okay with me because it was the one I wanted. But I thought I would see what everyone else has gotten and see if the Britax is really worth the money, or if I could get something similar for a much less price. Let me know what you guys think and tell me what has worked for you guys.

I have a 14 month old little girl and when she was almost one, we got the Britax Marathon - (in a flowered pattern of course). She LOVES it. She sleeps well, she seems very comfortable. We just turned it foward facing last week (even though it could have stayed rear facing for longer) - but she seems to love it just as much. Also, if you go to consumer reports website - Britax has one of the "more-safe" carseats. My husband was a little skeptical at first because of the price...BUT, we got it, our baby is happy, and Mommy is happy too! And another good thing is that the weight limit is so high, it looks like you won't have to buy another one anytime soon!!! By the way, babycheapskate.com (i think) - has a post about the britax sale that is starting up sometime REALLY SOON! So you can save some money!

We are going through the same thing right now! Let me know which one you choose. The girl at BabiesRUs was telling us a lot about the new Evenflo seat and it seemed really nice and about the same price as the least expensive Britax. Good luck!
love, Megan

Hi Audrey! It's nice to see your blog, and it's so cool that you have a little boy! I'll stop in and say hi on your blog every now and then!

This comment has nothing to do with which car seat to buy....seeing that I have no experience in buying them. I was just going to tell you that I still don't really know how to use my camera very well...the only reason the pictures look the way they do is because I devote the majority of the time to editing them. I am trying to learn more about the camera so that I don't have to do so much work on them. What kind of camera did you get?

Suppety Sup Aud. We have a Britax car seat but it's the infant car seat (up to 20 lbs). It's been fabulous and it was rated the safest blah blah blah all that good stuff. All of my girls at work tell me that that exact car seat you have posted is the bomb. I just bought the next size car seat (front facing) at Sams Club so I guess we'll find out whether it's worth it to pay more!

I have the Britax Roundabout. We LOVE it!!! It is worth the money. Braden has used it since he was born. He gets to use this seat until he needs a booster. The roundaboubt is a convertible seat. Hope that helps.
