Time to explore!

Tot School

We decided to play and make a mess today.  Chunk had a blast exploring different textures.  We started out with just some cheerios on his tray...then I added a spoonful of butterscotch pudding.  Yum.

He figured out very quickly how much fun it is to smear it all over the high chair tray.  Then we added in some ice pop pieces to the mix.

I was surprised because usually he doesn't like things that are really cold in his mouth, but he sucked on hat ice pop for a few minutes!

In other Chunk news, he's officially in a big boy seat.
He's the only one of the goobers to make it past a year 8 months in an infant seat.  Spawn and Sweet Nut both outgrew them by weight by 6 months, and Cute Boy was about 8 months when he outgrew his.  Chunk made it to 13 months and 2 days!  The only reason we switched was because we couldn't loosen or tighten the seat belt anymore.  He was at the limit.  He still has a while to go to his the weight limit (he was 28 pounds at his 1 year check up, and 25 pounds at the immunologist last week).  To say we are happy with the seat is an understatement!  The seat he had was the Graco Snugride 35.  It's a little sad, I'm slightly attached to the seat, but happy with what we got.  We bought the Graco MyRide 65.  I've been eyeing it for awhile, and I was actually trying to hold out for the Graco Size4Me to hit stores, but I didn't want to wait longer with not being able to adjust his harness.  And we got lucky-our Target has all the MyRide65s on clearance (so I know the new seats are coming...darn) So we got a deal on it.  It was a pretty easy install, or as easy as an install can be in the Beast.  We did it in the Target parking lot and he had no problems getting into it.  The one thing I don't like, and might end up still getting the Size4Me is that I'm going to have to uninstall it to rethread the harness when he gets bigger.
