J2 is 5 today! And still rear facing, by his own request. He's not going to be happy when he finally outgrows this seat. Thank you CSO!
He's just tiny! Fully clothed in boots he weighs 34lbs, and he's right at 40 inches exactly - and has been for months. But even so, he's finally getting close to the 1.5" mark on this one.That is awesome! Congrats on keeping him RFing for so long and happy birthday to J! I wish DS would still fit in anything RFing...
Probably, but we're definitely not buying any more seats. This one is less than 5 months old - our Pria got tossed when DH was in a wreck last year (almost exactly a year ago!), and we got a Pioneer, which we all hated. So I sold that eventually and we got this one.Would he get more time out of an E2F? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Congrats and Happy Birthday! I have a kid who loved RFing, if only she weren't so tall.
My kids were that size turning 3! I wish I were kidding. They're constantly outgrowing everything. Enjoy his smaller size! You're so lucky!

J1 was "normal" sized. It's so funny how they're so alike (they look like twins but born 8 years apart, they've got the same sense of humor), but so different too (the size difference, food tastes).My daughter too. She hit 40 inches and 40 lbs right at her 3 year check-up. My little one is tiny, though. Since I have all these high-capacity (and distant expiration date) RF seats from her big sister she'll probably RF until she's about 8. LOL.
Thankfully we have no car sickness issues! Well, I can't read in a car but the kids are fine. J2 rides forward in every other car, and he never complains about it or asks to be rear facing in them... but he begs not to be forward in mine. Crazy.Happy birthday! Congrats on rear facing!! Also my 3 yr 8 month old is about that size. 37lb & 39inches. I think when she finally outgrows her clek fllo rear facing she may get car sick forward facing because when we rode with a friend up a mountain to go camping in a small car (she usually is in a large vehicle) she rode rear facing but could see the road so much and got sick
He can't (won't? I think can't) buckle himself, or unbuckle. But you're right, it's very easy that he can climb in, get ready to be buckled, etc. He went through a phase around 2 of hating car seats, and it was AWFUL. I was ready to never drive again to not have to put him in!Happy Birthday to J2! Way to go to both of you! I don't know if I could make it that long, honestly. I guess it does get easier if they're compliant and can buckle up with just a check that all is well. I've often pondered the idea that it might be easier to reach that goal in a warm climate, too.
