New Car Seats!

So, after a friend told me about the benefits of extended rear facing (if you are interested in learning more, see here), I decided I wanted to go that route. However, the car seat Alyna had does not rear face, so after much thought and research on car seats, we got two new car seats for the kids. We wanted to get the Britax car seats, as they receive superb ratings and reviews, but they are out of our price range. So, we went with the Fisher Price Safe Voyage Deluxe (which is made by Britax and very much like the Britax seats). Lyna has been very excited all week to get her new seat! I was concerned about turning her back rear facing because I thought she might not like that positioning, but we went for a ride after getting the seats installed and she loved it and thought it was so cool (we will see how it goes when the novelty wears off!). I installed the car seats with the LATCH system, which I had never used before, but is apparently much safer in our particular vehicle. These seats should last us a while, as they both go from 5-55 lbs. So, here are some pictures of the kids in their new car seats...
(Yes Lyna is wearing her pajamas, and no it is not morning, she just likes wearing them!)


(Lyna was not happy about taking this picture, the sun was driving her crazy.)

And the best part about getting new car seats....

THE BOXES!

Noah has really changed since I saw him in August. He looks so grown up sitting in that car seat.
