    Because Rear Facing Is "Cool" :)

    So I started a new job today with 4m old baby Peter, and 3yr old Izzy, and the first thing I did was show Izzy her new seat!
    A My Ride 65 in Prentis, Rear Facing, and she loved the green

    She attempted to crawl in and needed a little help, but after that I adjusted the straps and buckled her in. The first thing she did was stretch out her legs and said she felt like "Daddy in his Big chair." (a recliner, lol).

    As we are driving through the neighborhood, she remarks at how it's cool to see "backwards" and she wishes she could sit like this in Mommy's car.
    (On that note, her mom once told me it was her gift to her kids on their 1st birthday to turn them around I don't see that as a gift )

    As we are driving back home from the store I notice her head is lower than it was originally and I realize she has fallen asleep!! It's a 10 min drive to the store and she had just woken up an hour ago!

    All day she kept saying things about the RF seat and how "cool" it was that she was just like Peter, who is of course rear facing in a Graco SS1. Later on we took a half hour drive and she took a 2 hour nap in the seat, which has never happened with her in the car that I know of

    Her stats are as follows: age 3 on Sept 18th, 38 inches tall, 14.5 in torso, and 30.5 lbs., she is on the 2nd from the top slots on the MR.

    Just wanted to share!
    Thanks!

    How incredibly awesome! Thanks for sharing!

    Your daughter (or is that your nanny child? ) is super cute, too!

    I'm thinking she is your nanny child. Super cute! But, I must ask, did you ask the mother/father's permission to post her picture? A lot of parents don't approve of posting their childrens pictures.

    Thanks! She is one of the many kids I watch, her name is Isabelle in my siggy
    I did ask permission, she said yes. I always do because I'm also an amature Photographer, so I ALWAYS ask permission for photo sharing.
