    New seats for Thing1 and Thing2

    My seats:
    3 MAs
    1 Como
    1 Vivo
    2 SS1

    Kids up for analysis:

    Dean (Thing 1): He is 22 months, and about 33lbs, gaining steadily. He is currently RFing in a MA. Has plenty of head room, he's just freaking heavy. I only have both these guys twice a week, probably down to once a week when I get an RN position. So....do I invest in a MR65 or just turn him FFing when he hits 35? He's FFing in his parents car.

    Ava (Thing 2): She's almost 5 and 42lbs. Currently in a Como because she's right at the harness slots in the MA. Has an inch or so in the Como. I don't want to put her in a booster, but I really really hate the Como.

    I'm thinking of selling the Como and getting something else. What I WANT is to get the cute new pink and brown MR65 and put Ava in it, but are the harness slots comparable to the MA or the Como? I don't care if she doesn't get very long out of it...I just wanna play.

    I know what is logical is to get her a Nautilus or something. Boo. And what about Dean? I feel crappy turning him at 2. But I can't afford two new seats right now. Unless I also sell a MA and a SS1.....

    I'd get a MR for the boy, and keep the girl in the Como.
