    Oh, the sadness...

    I was a little sad while packing away the tiny clothes...and tiny blankets...high chairs...cribs...etc. But now, my youngest hit the RF weight limit of his seat when I checked him at the dr's office today . So I just turned his seat around...

    So it's official. I really don't have any babies anymore. Where's that sobbing emotican when you need it ??


    So was anyone else a little sad to turn their last baby around, or am I just the only crazy one ?

    Yep, I was very sad seeing my baby grow up. I gave away my crib earlier this year and that was really hard for me.

    Re: Oh, the sadness...

    ((Hugs)) I know I will be sad on that day, too. I'm hoping DD2 makes it to 3 years old RF. She weighed in at 30 lbs. a couple of of weeks ago. If it weren't for the bigger Britax/Recaro convertibles, she'd be FF fairly soon before reaching 33/35 lbs. due to her torso height.
    Regards,

    I'm OK because I know we'll have one more. But, that last one. I'm gonna be nuts.

    Yep!! That's the one I needed !! Thanks! And it probably didn't help that I tried briefly to bring up the possibility of #4 last night, and Dh was pretty serious that he still feels totally done with 3, and would like to get something permanent done soon...And 99% of the time, I feel the same way too....But to have to turn my "baby" FF today...(sigh).

    It took Piper five years and three months to hit the 33 pound mark, and I'm still upset that she can't RF anymore. I was so used to having it as an option for her. And she outgrew being a baby a long time ago. Which is also sad to say. LOL
