That's what DD weighed fully clothed after supper tonight. I really wanted to RF her until she was at least 4 but two of her seats (CA65 and MR) only go to 40 lbs. She just turned 3 in August. I *think* our home scale reads a little high but not much. I dont want to turn her but we cant afford 2 RNs (or foonfs :p) so there's really no other choice. Her brother hovered just under 40 lbs at 3 but never went over until after his fourth birthday so I'm going to feel pretty bad if I turn her now and it turns out I could have waited. Ugh. She can still RF in our main vehicle in her XTSL but she's been riding more in our second car and with grandma now that I'm in school. Anyways, not much point to this other than I'm sad :crying: I know she'll still be safe but she wont be as safe as she could be.

Here are a couple pics just because she's cute ;)

ETA: Dont mind that TF in the first pic. I dont know what was up with that but no one rode in it that way :p

My godson turns 3 on the 20th of this month and it's making me a bit sad- I don't want him to grow up either!

Thank you guys. And I had a disclaimer under the pic with the TF, thank you very much :p

It's probably for the best. She's starting to seem a lot more cramped in the MR and CA recently and I've worried grandma and dad were going to start having a hard time getting her in correctly. Both of my kids are all legs. I wish we could have made it through winter though. It's going to be so weird seeing her FF :cool:

You have done a great job!! I forget that there are folks who have regular sized kids - DD is almost 6 and still not quite 40 pounds. DS is 10 and not yet 60. My guys are LIGHT! (wish they got it from me! :rolleyes:)
