It's been a long while since we changed from the previous car seat to this. We've come a long way. The initial excruciating experience was terrifying. I threw the car key and said I never ever want to drive with Ollie in the car again. Her loud wails were scary. Not to forget, she was back facing and couldn't see me, she couldn't feel the air conditioning blowing at her, it was horrible.
Today, I turned around (while the car was parked) and saw a complete contrast. She escaped from the belts, unbuckled on her own, turn off the video and waited for me to get down the car to wear the shoes of her choice. I'm thankful for her progress, thankful to Barney maybe. Haha.
