Coming home in the car seat

It was a chilly April day when we brought Elanora home from the hospital two days after she was born.  She’s wearing approximately 82 layers in this picture.

It was a pretty long walk from the hospital room to the car. We hadn’t bought a stroller yet and poor Paul had to carry the awkward car seat at a snail’s pace while I did my post c-section slooooow stroll. I remember feeling slightly alarmed at how tiny and vulnerable she was as we walked through the parking garage. There obviously could have been a manic driver ready to come around the corner to hit her at any moment!

We actually don’t use the car seat too much – so far we’ve been sticking close to home and taking tones of walks up the avenue in the stroller. Luckily she doesn’t put up much of a fuss on the odd times that we do plop her in the car seat. Here she is two months later on a much warmer June day – I think this is only about the third time she’s been in the car seat.

We’ve already had to move the straps up a level. I can’t believe how fast she is growing!
