CARSEAT PROBLEM SOLVED
Emma (Miss Tippy Tails) and Meilynn (Miss Kitty Boo Boo) this morning with Lily's picture when we found out that our Article 5 was signed and on its way to the CCAA in Beijing.
We have had a little problem with what to do with three carseats. We went to Babies R Us and tried every one. They were kind enough to let us take them out and see if they would fit between Emma and Meilynn's Britax carseats. We tried pushing and shoving, but nothing worked. We couldn't shut the door. We just bought our car less than a year ago, so there is no way we were willing to get a new one.
I went home and researched carseats and found the Radian that advertised being able to fit three in a row in a small suv. And the even better part is that they go up to 80 pounds with a 5 point harness and latch system. Most booster/carseats lose the harness and use the belt, which in my small girls would never be safe or fit them right. I found last years close outs at a reasonable price and ordered them from this site Diapers.com I think. I ordered them yesterday and they were here today. No shipping, no tax! Unbelievable! (Maybe they should start handling adoptions, jk ) So I sent Mike out with the task of putting them in. I was getting worried when it took so long. He told me that we would not be taking them out ever! So we did get a fit with an inch of space to spare on each side, and Mike about 5 pounds thinner. It looks like now we will need another carseat to put in the Yukon with the two Britax carseats since it looks like we will not be removing the custom fit ones we now own. I tried to snap a quick picture just before I took the girls to choir but it was dark and hard to take such a close up from the front seat.
