We decided to change the car seats in my car from rear facing to forward facing. We looked up the laws in Virginia to make sure we weren't breaking any laws before we changed them around. The law states that a child must be 1 year AND 20 pounds. They all 3 are over 20 pounds and over a year old. The all are tall and they looked so uncomfortable rear facing because there legs were scrunched up. Ashton wasn't feeling very good so he fell asleep on the way home, but the girls loved facing forward and seeing all of the traffic lights and street lights.
We are going to keep the car seats in the truck rear facing until winter is completely over, in case we get a good snow fall (which is unlikely). But the truck would be safer to travel in if we had to go out somewhere.
One thing we can't do anymore is sneak in a bite to eat if we go through a drive-thru.
