one of the great gifts my parents got us for christmas was a new car seat for our boy. he was getting a bit big for the old carry seat, and diana was starting to get back problems whenever she had to hoist that monstrosity in and out of the car! it was also a bugger because ledger didnt like that he couldnt see his mama and papa in the car- it was to the point that all he would do is whine and cry in the car because he was facing backward. now that he's big enough, he gets the big boy car seat that faces the right direction! he is much happier because he can see whats going on, and we are much happier because he is much happier! thanks again, mom and papa!
