a couple of necessities

We made our final decisions and ordered the rest of Lilah's 'necessities' yesterday.

The car seat is the cowmooflage marathon by Britax, which is convertible and can face rear and forwards. Lilah will need it rear facing for a while because of her light weight.

We also decided not to go for a high chair, but instead we went for a booster seat, it should do the trick, I hope! It is also good for traveling...whenever that might happen! We do enjoy eating out and we also love to take mini vacations, so you never know! Oh yes, and not forgetting N.Ireland to visit nono, papie, na and pa (aka Lilah's grandparents)! Fun fun fun!

There are moments that I shake my head and think, this is actually happening, but I seem to have a lot more moments when I think it's just a dream. I'm not sure why, but it seems to have been a particularly hard week for both of us; just accepting the timing and relying on our God for faith and patience. Romans 4:20 - He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God.

  1. Great choice on necessities! Kathryn has the Britax car seat and it's wonderful, the straps don't get tangled and it's really secure. Kathryn still faces backwards and it's rock solid. I think that she was actually happy to see it when we arrived home from Ottawa! :)
    We also have the booster seat and it works great especially going to dinner at friends houses. If you do decide you need a high chair, IKEA sells a nice one that is really easy to clean up and it doesn't take up much space.
    We're still praying for you and Lilah!
