Preparations Continue

After Thursday's baby shower, Ken and I went to one of the stores where we were registered to find a car seat. The one I had originally picked out was nowhere to be found in the southeast and I didn't want to take a chance of not having one when we needed it. After looking around the store for awhile, we settled on one that was close to what I had originally chosen.
Since I had to administer the ACT Saturday and I knew that would take most of the day, I decided that Sunday would be the day that I would tackle installing the car seat in my car. Thanks to my friend Julie, who had given me some pointers about what to do, I knew that I needed not only the installation book that came with the seat, but also the owner's manual for my car to see which seats were suitable for installation.

After reading both manuals and looking over the illustrations, I put on my coat (it was still not quite 40 degrees outside), and headed out to the garage to begin the installation. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and it took me less than 3o minutes to get it latched into place and check it to be sure that it wouldn't wiggle or wobble. I was pretty proud of myself! I wanted to be sure that I could do it on my own.

The finished product

Now we are just the much closer to bringing home our little one when she arrives!

This is way too much for those of us who allowed you to ride "free rein" - back in the day. AND I MIGH ADD you made it just fine.
