I just thought I'd share a quick pic of Jackie in his winter get up. I found this cute little quilted, fleece lined coat for him at the Gymboree outlet, and bought the little stocking cap there as well. They don't technically match, but I loved them both so much, I had to get them. You know how it goes, right?
Once he's in the carseat, he gets a heavy fleece blanket tucked in under his legs, and then it flips up over the top of them and folds down. It's the same thing we did with Henry... in fact, it's Henry's blanket. My cousin sent it when he was born, and it has his (Henry's) name embroidered in one corner. I have to be sure to tuck that in at the bottom when I use it. hee hee. I tried to get Jack one of his own, but they (Land's End) don't make them anymore. Oh well, the hand me downs and sharing had to start sooner or later!
For the most part, Jack is content in his car seat as long as we are moving and not traveling a great distance. If we sit still too long without the car running, he gets cranky. Reeeeeally cranky. I think he'll be happier when he can face the front, but we still have a little over three months before we can even think about that. Meanwhile, I keep lugging this beast around. It must weigh a good 10 lbs empty, so we're looking at close to 40 lbs here when he's in it (he weighed 26ish at his last appt). The seat has a weight limit of 30 lbs, and I plan to use it as long as possible... for better or worse. That's what physical therapy is for. LOL. :o)
