Sorry grandmas, I'm having trouble uploading pictures.
I've been researching convertible car seats for awhile, so we'd be ready when the time came. I couldn't remember whether her current infant car seat is good for 20 or 25lbs., so I looked it up the other day. Either way, she won't hit that milestone for quite awhile, so we have have plenty of time, right? Well, apparently she can use her car seat until she's 20lbs. OR 26 inches tall (long). Umm, it looks like it's time to buy a new car seat! We measured her when she turned 3 months, because we're obsessive like that, and our future supermodel was about 25.67 inches already. 4-month well-baby checkup is in a few weeks, so we'll get the official measurement then, but by then she'll probably well over 26 inches tall.
One thing I've been wondering about, though, is what am I going to do when we go shopping? All I have to do right now is snap the car seat out and snap it on the shopping cart. She can sit up pretty well when she's propped up, but she's certainly not ready to sit in the seat area yet. I know a lot of places have plastic car seats attached to some carts, but what about the places that don't? I'm going to the grocery store when she wakes up and we'll have to make sure they have those seats. I know my beloved Target does, so at least they won't be able to keep me away from there. There's a reason why she's not supposed to outgrow the infant seat until she's older! She needs to quit growing already.
