A Car Seat Fiesta!

Ok, so we realize that we still have at least a little time left before the three little munchkins make their appearance, BUT, we are running out of room in our house what with all the baby stuff times THREE everywhere!! So today, Brian (and Piper) decided to put together the car seats and then...(cross your fingers) test them to see if we could even FIT three car seats in my Durango!

Now I have to say, I have long found myself to be pretty handy and pretty good at reading directions and putting things together, (I got that from my "Jack of All Trades Mother") but Brian is equally capable and actually ENJOYS doing these sorts of things. Lately, I have been thanking my lucky stars for that! Maybe it's the pregnancy brain drain (or maybe that's just my excuse) :) but I am happy to stand back, with the camera of course and simply watch the magic happen! Brian is absolutely AMAZING (ABC's The Bachelor is back on...what can I say? We have to use the word "amazing" at least 8 times in a day!) Those who are watchers know what I'm talking about... :)

But seriously, I've seen some people reduced to frustration and tears just putting one baby item together, and in all honesty, I don't discount their feelings! I myself find one to be enough. But I sit and watch in awe as he finishes one car seat, then sets it aside, then the 2nd and sets it aside, and then the third! With the same patience and good nature as he had when he put together three cribs, and hung three name plaques, etc. It's surreal really when you really stop to think about it. I'm so proud of him and so glad that he looks forward to being the "dad" of our three babies. And folks, I just wish you could have seen his face light up when he finished assembling the two boys' car seats and then ended with his little girl's pink one. :) She's not even born yet and already she can make her dad's heart melt. Life has a funny way of working itself out. Our perfect little family is almost here. And I couldn't be happier!

Away he goes! Car seat #1...
Car Seat #2.....
Piper is being a big helper. Can you tell? She's bringing him all the right pieces!

And Car Seat #3!
I'm very proud of them both!

So here they are, waiting by the front door...ready for the babies!
And....YES! They fit! They fit! And we still have the third row and the back trunk area to accommodate strollers, bags, the dog, etc. :)

That is crazy. The most car seats we have had in our car at one time was 2! Just wait until you have to get those babies in and out...it is a work out within itself. I am very happy everyone fits AND with some room to spare. Your hearts will be in puddles when those cuties are in there for the first time to come home!
