63/365 March 4, 2010

Jonas turned 1 yesterday, but his car seat will not be turned forward facing anytime soon! Aside from the fact that he is not yet 20 lb, he will be MUCH safer staying rear facing as long as possible. You can see Levi's empty seat next to him is still rear facing - yep, Levi is almost 4 and still rides rear facing. He will stay that way until he hits his seat's weight limit of 35 lb. It's THAT much safer.
