Boys and Their Toys

Brody got a new "ride" today. As soon as we put it in our buggy at Target he could not take his eyes off of it. He kept reaching for the box and laughing. He was so excited. I have no idea how he knew it was for him. As we were walking out the door, Matt walked ahead of me with Brody. He strained to look over Matt's shoulder to make sure it was coming with us.

When we got home I sat the box in the living room next to where Brody was playing. He immediately got excited. As I took it out of the box, he kept diving towards it and peeking over my leg as I got it all set up.

Finally, it was time for him to give a test drive. And he was such a big boy in it. So here's Brody in his new "ride."

Yep, he got a big boy carseat today! And he already loves it! I seriously couldn't get him out of it. I put him in it first of all because he was so curious and excited about it, but mainly because I wanted to get all the straps adjusted before we installed it in the car. He absolutely hates his infant carrier. He's always trying to sit up in it and get out. So it is definitely time to move on. He looks so tiny in that big seat but he fits very well and will have plenty of room to grow in it.

So this will be his ride for a long while. He's slowing abandoning his "baby" gear. No more infant carrier, no more swing and he rarely sits in a bouncy seat anymore. How did we get here already?!


  1. My nephew is getting so BIG! I can't believe how fast time is flying! You look super cool in your new "ride" Brody boy!
