We took my mom to Old Spaghetti Factory last night to celebrate Grandparentâ€™s Day.
Chloe enjoyed her first dining out experience by sleeping in her car seatâ€¦ the whole time! I think we may finally have a car seat baby. Is this what babies do if they like the car seat? Hope it stays this way. It makes it so much easier to travel in the car when our baby is happy in the car seat.
Chris and I made a decision to not get a van or bigger SUV. Itâ€™s just too much of a financial commitment. We werenâ€™t sure if this was going to work or not, but 3 car seats can fit across the back seat of our compact SUV. Our kids are going to have to deal with not having a lot of personal space.
On another note, my mommy nesting instincts are kicking into high gear. Iâ€™m having trouble slowing my brain down with my â€œget ready for babyâ€ task list swarming in my head. Poor Chris. He was so tired, but I made him set up the car seat late at night cuz I really needed to take one more thing off of my checklist. I have a final paper for seminary class due on Sunday (tomorrow). I have a lot of work to do to finish it, but Iâ€™m having trouble focusing to get it done. Would love your prayers!
I was driving to a nearby park to take Caleb out to play. I knew Caris was tired. From the driverâ€™s seat, I saw her head slumped forward. I thought she was playing, trying to reach a toy in front of her. Then I stopped at a light, Carisâ€™ head fell back, and I saw that she was asleep. But sheâ€™s so big now, she doesnâ€™t fit easily into her head rest/support. We still used it, though, cuz it looks like sheâ€™s comfy in it. But once she pulls her head out of it, itâ€™s hard for her to fit her head back into it. Mommy has now removed the head rest so Carisâ€™ head can flop anywhere it wants.
