Life Lessons - Carry me no more

1) I switched the Jellybean to a big boy car seat last weekend. Still rear facing of course but no longer an infant carrier.
2) I may have cried a little over it. (Or a lot.)
3) I also lost the luxury of just being able to just tote the carrier around if he falls asleep in the car.
4) That's why my neighbors may have seen me sitting on the front porch peeling potatoes for dinner on Wednesday while watching him sleep in the car.
5) Ahh...a mother's love!
6) I also recently converted my parents to two new great loves of mine. Sunbutter and Kale Chips.
7) Now I sound like a hippie.
8) I'm not. I shower all the time. And pot makes me puke. I'd be a horrible stoner.
9) It's finally cold enough to bundle Jellybean up.

10) I loved it. Cuteness overload!
11) "The Bump" informed me yesterday that there was 50 days to Jellybean's birthday.
12) I say a big FU to that. There is no way my baby is turning 1.
13) Now my ovaries are starting to beg for another.
14) Or maybe that's just Aunt Flo returning after 18 months without the witch.
15) I'm sticking with we need another baby in a year or so though! :)
16) Finally - shameless plug - Don't forget I'm doing a Shutterfly Giveaway! Free Christmas Cards!!

Just yesterday I started planning Donut's 1st bday party and I was shocked! It feels like a long year, but at the same time it seems like she just got here and now she's going to be 1. Crazy babies--who said they could grow up so fast?

I made kale chips a few weeks ago and they were actually pretty good!

I don't know how many days until my baby's birthday (and I'm too lazy to try to figure it out right this second), but it must be close to yours. His is December 21. And I'm not ready. But I have two older girls, so I'm not the least tempted to have another one. We need to ditch the infant carrier car seat because he's entirely too big for it. He's almost 26 pounds, so I haven't bothered to try to carry him in the carrier in months. Maybe I'll take this as a reminder to switch over this weekend.

Oh, I love the sight of a bundled up baby!

Moving up to a new carseat is a big moment! It's hard to believe how fast they grow.

And you are so much nicer than me...I used to pick up E out of the carseat and carry her in the house, whether she was sleeping or not. If she was sleeping, it just gave me an excuse to cuddle and rock with her to get her back to sleep. :)

Di, that is ONE CUTE KID! I say, keep him young, and don't celebrate his birthday!

That is cuteness overload! He's turning one soon huh? I think the timing's just right for a second one ;)

Oh my, he is getting so big! I can't believe a years is just around the corner either?!?

First birthdays are hard. I was 3 months pregnant at The Boy's and no one new yet... it was an exercise in denial and by the time The Girl's rolled around I was tired... I'd been pregnant or nursing for over 3 years!

Jellybean is so cute. It was hard when my boys moved up to the bigger car seat, and no it does not seem like Jellybean should be turning one already.
