Guess Who!

Guess who's smiling face we can see from the front seat of the car? Landon's!
We made it to our goal of two years for Landon to sit rear facing. Actually, we made it to 2 years, 1 month, 2 weeks, and 1 day. When I went to turn Landon's other car seat around the top tether broke. I called the car seat company and after 90 days the car seats are out of warranty. A three month warranty on a convertible car seat that has a 6 year expiration date is a little crazy if you ask me. Since they wouldn't bend on the warranty issue they offered us a new seat at 50% off. We took them up on the offer because we knew we couldn't find a new seat for under $100 (the half off price), especially a safe, quality seat for that price. Of course, they were all out of the color that we originally had and were also out of our backup color choice. We wound up with the brown and black option (my least favorite), but it is starting to grow on me. Landon's seat does rear face to 35 pounds and I was contemplating just holding out until he reached to 35 pounds. However, he is quickly approaching that point and I didn't want to push the limits of the seat. These hot Florida days have also been making rear facing tough on Landon. He is usually happy to be in the car and never fusses in his seat. Lately, Landon has been fussing and he is soaking in sweat within minutes of being in the car. The a/c doesn't reach him too well with him rear facing and car rides have become quite miserable for him. He's such a happy camper now that he is able to feel the full blasts of the a/c!  
Landon still sits in his seat with his legs crossed!
