I have really been struggling the past couple weeks because I actually DO NOT feel bad about taking Zach to School (aka day care). Does that sound strange? I really thought I would feel bad and guilty about it, but I actually feel like it's the best thing for him. He's 14 months old and has been walking since he was 9 months. He's very active and I think that he's gaining so much from going there. He gets to socialize with other kids, learn new things, and just run around and play! It actually is a huge stress reliever.
Zach is very tall for his age. He's 35 inches & 25 pounds. He's been in the 100th percentile since his 2 month visit. He seems pretty comfortable in my car, but in my husbands car and my mom's car, his legs are completely bent. I guess it's just the way the backseat is designed in each of our vehicles.
Has anyone ever turned the car seat to forward facing before the age of 2?
Michigan state law requires your child to be 12 months and 20 lbs but recommends waiting till they are 2. We haven't turned him forward facing because we worry, but I'm just wondering if anyone else has? He seems uncomfortable sometimes!
On another note, we are working with Zach at each meal trying to get him to use utensils. It's quite entertaining. Some days he does really well and other days he just holds the fork and eats with his other hand! It's so cute! I guess it depends on what we're eating. I think he's doing a great job for his age!
