An official big boy.

It's official, Chase is a big boy. For the last couple of months I have been researching carseats because I knew that all too soon our beloved Round.about would be outgrown and we'd need something new. We have loved our Round.about and have not had one single complaint with In fact, even when the styrofoam molding got cracked due to our error they sent us a new piece w/in two days free of charge.

I am a safety nut when it comes to Chase and this has been a long road to come to the conclusion of what we want. So many things to consider, but in the end the thing that mattered most was safety. After all, nothing is as important as our Doodlebug! We finally decided to go with the and it arrived tonight! Chase loves it and I must say that it's pretty awesome. It's gigantic, but since we drive a Tahoe there is still plenty of room on each side. I also ordered my niece one at the same time and her's is now in a Toyota Corolla, so even though it's big it must be ok in a smaller car too.

We will passing on our Round.about to a friend and it was kinda of bittersweet taking it out of the place of honor. I remember when we bought it and how tiny Chase was. Now he is so big in it. I could feel my eyes beginning to leak and quickly blamed it on the hormones, but I know it's because this is just another sign that my baby is no longer a baby.

I wanted to give a shout-out to Duchess and she is the one responsible for getting us (and my niece) the Reg.ent and we owe her a huge thank you. She is always doing for us and we are so grateful! You are awesome Duchess, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Chase couldn't wait until tomorrow to sit in it and had to test it out tonight. He gave it a huge smile and a thumbs-up!

On an IVF #5 side note I have my next monitoring appointment tomorrow. I am 6 shots down already and hope tomorrow shows some follies starting to grow. One good thing about doing IVF during the school year is that I certainly don't have the time to obsess!!
