    39.5 lbs. Waaah.

    He was 39.5 lbs at the doctors office today (the poor child's eye swelled shut from a mosquito bite! He looks terrible!). I've always said I'd RF him until the limit, but half a pound on the doctor's scale seems like it's really time to stop.

    So just in case anyone was taking notes on my Giant Toddler, he's now officially out of every RF US seat but the Radian SLs that go to 45 lbs. At a week shy of 2y7months. He didn't make it to 2.5 years in anything but the Radian, height wise.

    Guess I don't need those replacement Radian stickers so soon after all...

    (Wait, how much could a puffed up eye weigh? What about shoes? Should I put him it naked? Kidding. Sigh.)

    Don't you still have a multitech to RF him in? Or are you just bummed because you won't be able to use US seats RF anymore?

    I do have a MT, for just this reason. But this means the end of domestic air travel RF, which freaks me out since we go to CA and spend half of our time there on the freeway. And he likes the Radian in the Honda--kid learned car brand names before he learned any of the kid brand names.

    It isn't FAA certified, plus it's huge and has the foot prop and everything.
