Austin has been wanting a new carseat for a while now. He really wanted a booster so that he could use the car seatbelts, but I didn't think he was old enough to really do that yet. I researched and found this carseat that has great safety ratings and will last him until he is completely out of a booster. It will hold up to 100 pounds and when he gets older, we can take the back off for a backless booster.
It has all kinds of bells and whistles, but the best thing is that he can buckle and unbuckle himself which will be GREAT when I am out with him and Colten. He can just hop in and out of the car without help and I can (hopefully) get in and out of the car a little faster than if I were to fasten 2 kids before going anywhere. :-)
Here's Austin taking his new seat for a test our living room! He was so proud of it that he wanted to sleep with sat at the foot of his bed in his room instead of IN the bed like he wanted.

The deal right now is that when he shows us that he can be responsible enough to get in and out of the car on his own and sit in his seat while the car is moving and not unbuckle himself, then we'd discuss using the car seatbelts. I guess we'll see how it goes!
