maya moved on to a front facing seat today. strange how it takes a lot of work to figure it all out but in the end it was all worth it. maya was really perplexed at first. she wanted to get out because i think she thought that she was in another car, not her own. after we strapped her in and told her we were going bye bye, she seemed to accept it.
for the last few weeks i have been battling maya when putting her into her rear facing seat. she constantly was trying to turn around while i strapped her in. believe it or not she is a strong little bugger. we had bought her the seat when she was around 13 months old but didn't switch over because of her weight. finally she has reached 20+ pounds and with her recent antics, it was just time to switch.
i think it will be great for her to see everything. already she is very interested in looking around at the other cars. now she can enjoy the ride much more.
