A New Direction

At Eli's 12 month well visit, I asked Dr. R when we would be able to switch Eli around in his car seat. She said that he was old enough and weighed enough, so it would be okay to go ahead and switch him around. Once again, I started the switcheroo and about 2 hours later I was finished. (Car seats are a NIGHTMARE to install!) Eli was trying to "help" me again and when he wasn't "helping" he was doing his best to run down the driveway to the street. I did as much as I could on my own and then we went inside until Daddy got home to help with Eli so I could finish. When the car seat was finally installed, Josh took Eli on a ride around the block to see what he thought about the new view. He seemed to really enjoy being able to look and finally see everything, especially the DVD player that was playing Praise Baby. I'm sure he was excited that he didn't have to try to watch it anymore in the mirror's reflection. This is yet another sign that my baby is gone and a fun, active little toddler is replacing him :) Life is getting to be so much fun!
