11 months

 thursday

 

today sam turned 11 months old. i’m hoping to do a small photo shoot this weekend. i will also do a "sam at 11 months" list this weekend. i’m working at the store tomorrow. 

 

in the meantime, here’s a new tidbit: i’m about to go and put her BIG GIRL car seat into the pathfinder. no more rear-facing seat. no more lying back. she will now get to be a real "big girl" by facing forward and sitting upright in a seat similar to davey’s. and i know she will be thrilled!

  1. I can’t believe Sam is 11 months already! She’s a very cute little girl! I will just recommend that you make sure you do lots of research before turning her forward facing–check out http://www.joelsjourney.org or http://www.kyledavidmiller.org to see their research on rear facing vs. forward facing. Forward facing is just so dangerous for such young babies! I turned Kellan back from forward facing to rear facing after my nephew’s car accident. My nephew was 18 months at the time, and his injuries would have been so less severe if he had still be rear facing. Being 1 yr and 20 lbs. is the minimum acceptable range for riding forward facing–many safety organizations are now recommending to keep kids rear facing until 2! I’ve just done a ton of reading about this since my nephew’s accident, and I try to spread the word whenever I can! I just put the infant mirror back up for Kellan so he can still see the DVD player in our car, and he doesn’t seem to mind a bit!
