right now Peyton is in an infant seat in the middle.

Would you buy another radian an rf it in the middle a different carseat with shorter bac or buy Blu a booster and put Peyton in Blus radian.

So confused and can't think straight about it and dh is no help on the topic.
Is Blu really only 34"? Or did you mean 44"?

What are you trying to change and why? That might help my answer. I not a tech but I think I'm fairly knowledgable about carseats. Jacky was (is?) a tech though and can chime in also.

I need a big fat ZERO of those! lol

We're not doing a party, after 7 years of birthday parties with the kids, my only real friends moving to NC this week, and the parties always end up having like literally 3 people at them, it's a waste of money and time. literally the only person that would be there is my mom, and that's just depressing.

We're just going to do something fun for the first birthday. We did that with Jake too. We decided this year that you get a party when you have friends to invite... as we have no family.. apparently. lol (dave side he's not close to and/or works weekends and I have my mom)

It's kinda sad, but it's kinda perfect at the same time. More money to spend on the outing/gift vs the party food, decorations, etc.

With jake, we took him to the zoolights at the zoo.

Nothing wrong with that!! We did an outing for ds2 last year and had a blast! He doesn't really have friends and didn't want to invite anyone so we offered to take him to the arcade and go-gart track. It was flat rate for all day bands and no mess to clean!

Re: AUGUST 2011 - Its June!!

we've only had family over for parties. we grill, they bring side dishes. it works.

amy, the guitar mold would be awesome! it could be a "Little Rock Star" party. you could save some of the batter and bake muffins in ice cream cones...they look like microphones. have the big girls help cut out and decorate a few paper/cardboard stars and put them on a wall for a photo shoot.

Britt- oops 44 inches lol!
I need a convertible carseat bc she will grow out of her infant seat soon.

Amy-your missed af could be due to change of diet and not sure if you are still nursing but that too.

Love it Naomi! My MIl bought me bakepop pans so that would totally work! And I love having a use for all those pictures I bought.

I like that the missing af may be diet. Way better than my crazy hypochondriac thoughts. Lol. I had breast cancer at 19, so cancer is always in my freak out thoughts.

You mentioned Tanner is ff because of fit issues? Can you be more specific?

If you think Blu can sit correctly in a booster then that is a reasonable option for him at his age. In that case I would definitely pass the radian down, keep anyone under 2 rf for sure, but obviously rf Peyton.

That would put oldest in a highback booster, two youngers in radians rf. If you have the space as want to continue to harness blue there other options here as well. Either way I would pass down the radian.

Wow Amy, breast cancer at 19??! How did you cope with that? you must have been a really strong and mature 19 year old.

Amy thats tough and I can see why you would be nervous about AF. I actually get excited when I do not get it and am not pregnant.

Britt--The back of the radian is super long and hits we drive a jeep cherokee. It hits up against the seat no matter how hard I try to prop the cs up and can not get the front seat any further forward. I am really nervous about taking Blu out of a seat not bc he won't sit but bc I want the most safe option possible and I know that it is harness. I am thinking I will just suck it up and get another radian.
