P and I are a bit at odds as to what to get SS. I would like to keep SS in a carseat for as long as possible, due to her petite frame. P feels that since SS is nearing her 8th birthday, a booster is more appropriate for her age. Most of the kids her age are using backless boosters, but I really don't care. Backless boosters are not safe, and most kids SS's age out weight her by at least 30 pounds. Looks like a compromise is in order, a five point harness booster seat. I can live with that compromise, because SS will be secured in the same manner she is in her carseat. We found a Britax booster at Babies R Us, all we have to do now is read Consumer Reports to find out the safety rating. Yet another milestone that brings home the fact that our baby is far gone, we are definitely in big girl land. The more SS grows, the more we go back to reconsidering whether we want her to be our last child. I know, here we go again, but we are talking and considering extending our Summer of 2015 deadline to decide if we are gong to put ourselves through the emotional rollercoaster that is adoption. On the bright side, the outcome makes up for all the emotional suffering.
Very proud of her Bots.
October is a fun month and since there are cool Halloween shirts to wear, uniforms get a break.
