Spring Break was a month ago, and honestly I just forgot to get the pics and videos posted! I got distracted with potty training, and pretty much everything else went out the window! But this week Justin asked me if I ever got the pics up... Oops! So here they are, better late than never! :)
To start us off, I'm posting a picture of Elias in the car:
This picture is significant for 2 reasons. First of all, we moved Elias to a big-boy booster seat! He's well within the weight/height range for them, but the recommendation is not to transition them until they're 4. Although Elias is not yet 3, and he hadn't outgrown the height/weight specs for his car seat, he had outgrown it by the definition of his shoulders being higher than the top setting for the shoulder straps. Soooo, since he's so big, and so good in the car, and so HEAVY to be lifting in & out of the car seat, and since we were going on a long car trip for Spring Break, we decided to give it a try. And it was marvelous! He does so well in it! He's obviously more comfortable, and it's so much easier for him to just climb in & out himself! It's also convenient that I can just keep a bin of toys next to him that he can just reach in and entertain himself. Score! So, I'm really glad we plunged in and made the switch.
The second thing that is great about this picture is the way he's sitting. See how he's sitting cross-legged with one foot on top, instead of the traditional cross-legged posture where both feet are under the knees? This is absolutely hilarious because Justin has always sat like this, and still does. As long as I've known him, people have commented about the strange way he sits with one foot on top like that. So when we saw Elias sitting like this, we absolutely cracked up!!! Elias is definitely his father's son!!!
