    My girl in her new seat! *pics*

    I couldnt resist the $100 RA50 at Target today and got one for my girl.

    I had to share pics because she is just so tiny and it's hilarious how much room she has in this seat.
    She's 2.5 years old, 20-21 lbs, and 34 in.

    She'll never hit 35 lbs RFing..and with all that room above her head I have no doubt she'll make it to 4 years old RFing in this seat.





    And my boy in his radian



    Just wanted to share. Oh, and this is the first Britax I've owned. lol. She was in a Recaro Signo before. I'll miss that seat..not that I dont like the Britax..I just REALLY liked the Recaro.

    How does the legroom compare to the Recaro?

    Amazing difference in the legroom. The lack of legroom in the Recaro (meant her eating her knees) is why we needed a new seat for her.

    What a cutie! The seat suits her perfectly! My DS1 outgrew the MA RF at 2 years old by height and I believe that my DS2 who is already 24in and about 13lbs at 8 weeks will outgrow it sooner than that! Your DD is a ERF'er dream!

    DS1 - 9, DS2 - 6, DS3 - 3, and DS4- due September 2016
