    I think if you want that expensive of a car seat and you can afford it, then that is great. If you can not, then a cheaper car seat will do fine as well.
    I don't know what child weighs 85lbs. I am not a pediatrician nor do I study children's development. I do know that there are diseases and other special needs children that may hit 85lbs before your sister ever did.

    Jace is 58-59lbs at 6 years old. He is a solidly built kid.

    Any car seat is better than no car seat. Jace is lucky because his also turns into a booster (where he can use a lap belt) and is quite comfortable. I don't foresee him sitting 5 pointed up until he is 85lbs but I do foresee keeping him as safe as I can in the crazy traffic we drive in every day.

    I reached my ideal weight at 17 - 135 lbs. I know that seems like a lot, but not on my frame at 5'7". At 135 I am thin but muscular in my legs. I'm not 135 right now though...lol. My girl who is 6 in a week is 50 lbs and 4'2". She is very muscular and tall. My boy, on the other hand, is 33.5 lbs and will be 4 in a couple months. He has tiny ankles and wrists and isn't very tall for his age. lol....what do you do? Kids are so unique.

    Oh, both kids passed their swimming lessons yesterday. I knew DD would for sure - she was the strongest swimmer in her class, but little Ben...I wasn't so sure about him passing Bobbers. But he did! Yay! Claire can swim front crawl half way across the pool with her face in the water. We just need to work on her turning her head to the side so she can breathe! That's pretty good for 5

    Our girls must have been born around the same time. Brianna will be 6 on April 1st. Yay for passing swim lessons. Alyssa will be taking swim lessons this summer.

    Today was the first day of DH's Spring break. We have been busy moving all of the bedrooms around. I am excited to be moving into a bigger bedroom. There is a lot involved in moving all of the clothes and furniture though. We are also planning to repaint some of the bedrooms.

    My boys have always been small like that too. Brandon played football in 5th grade and he was 60 lbs and some of the other boys on his team were huge. My Rocco is 7 now and he still wears a 5 slim in jeans. He went in for baseball tryouts a couple weeks ago and we were asked at least twice if he was in the right age group.

    So in a different thread it was mentioned by a number of people that they fed their babies real food. I am wondering if anyone knows of a good forum online that I could go to get advice on baby led weaning, or baby digestion in general? Baby has never digested any 'real food' (everything comes out looking exactly the same as when it goes in) and he has wicked gas that makes him cry and fuss for hours if he doesn't get his Ovol drops every day. I have never experienced this to this extent with my other kids. Sure a food here and there would bother them, or 'come out' the same, but it is absolutely everything with him, and Im not sure what to do about it. I am worried the Dr is just going to tell me it is because I don't puree everything, which I know is not the problem, so I am looking for advice to to back me up, and possibly suggestions for tests to have run, or other things to look for. The good thing about my Dr is he will run any test you want done if you ask, even though he seems to know very little about babies in general

    We didn't really do purees with our babies, maybe a little bit with our first, but not at all with the other two. I think that its pretty common for stuff to come out like it goes in ~ I remember vividly things like corn and blueberries and raisins and whatnot being identical (or bigger) upon exit. (so gross, sorry). For us it was normal, but they didn't seem to be in discomfort/gassy either. Maybe ask if you could do allergy testing if you suspect there could be some sort of allergy or intolerance?

    We got like 6 inches of snow today ~ the most we have gotten all winter (which is unusual for us, we generally get more) Happy Spring, eh?

    So I just got back from a new doctor. Each doctor I go to I feel a little less human. He took everything very seriously. He did a breast exam and an pelvic ultrasound. He did not find any masses or tumors, but is sending me this week for an ultrasound of my breast and another pelvic ultrasound. He said most cases of HCG when you are not pregnant is a tumor. If my HCG comes back as positive, but the ultrasounds come back negative, then he will send me for an MRI.

    So that was my lovely day, how are all of your days going?
