I was just going to say, my oldest son sat in a highchair until he was 5 and he was mad to give it up, lol. We didn't use the tray anymore, just pushed the chair up to the table so it was like a nice high boosterseat. He loved it. He did go through a phase at around 2 for a month or so that he didn't want the high chair but discovered it wasn't so messy to use it so decided he liked it. Now he uses a booster seat.

Carter is 16 months now and is no where near leaving the high chair.

She's 26.5lbs and 32" tall. The highchair is an Evenflo Expressions, the tray pushes on her tummy, and the seat cover is ripped and awful. I bought it brand new but it sure didn't last. No she'll sit in it, but it presses against her tummy and hurts her. So yeah, she DOESN'T fit anymore.

ETA : Heheee, I must have had breastfeeding on my mind since dd nursed so much last night...I meant Expressions, not Expressiva...lmbo at myself.

My 2yo sits in a first years reclining booster w/ tray in the upright position. She never had a high chair...we've used this since she was 6mo and it has been great. We did put phone books underneath it so it sits up higher, though.

My DD still fits in her highchair but REFUSES to sit in it. We got the First Years booster too and I laminated some of her artwork to use as placemats. But more often she eats out of her snack bowls either sitting in her chair or standing at the coffee table.

We have a Tripp Trapp/Kinderzeat that DD still uses. The seat and footrest are both adjustable. It will even hold the weight of an adult. We love it!

I would recommend one of those little portable high chairs

we have little booster seat chairs that have a tray with it that my kids use. We just use the chair pushed up to the table, but when they cant sit at the table we just put the tray on and put a blanket or towel, something underneath them in case they drop food
