Does anyone have any recommendations on a toddler car seat? I am trying to decide between a Britax and a Recaro. I went to USA baby today to look at the Britax seats. That was what I was pretty sure I was going to get. I got to talking to the sales lady and she highly recommended the Recaro seats. I had never heard of Recaro but apparently, they were the first manufactures for the seats in the porshe and also design the seats in professional racing cars. Now I can't decide since she said Recaro got better safety ratings than Britax and they also meet the European safety ratings. Does anyone have any information or personal experience with either brand? Thanks!

Tomorrow is Eric's first official Father's Day and just happens to be his 28th birthday as well! I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband and daddy to Mason. When Eric walks into a room, Mason's eyes light up and he just smiles at him and can't wait for his daddy to come and pick him up. They really have a special bond, that I have loved to watch grow more and more every day. Eric, thank you for being you. I hope you have a great birthday and Father's Day! We love you so much!

9 months later, and the bathroom is finally done!! If you haven't read our blog previously or just forgot since it's been so long, here is a rundown of what happened.
-Sept 08- noticed a leak in the shower
-Oct 08- suspected we might have mold damage and called a mold remediation company. Remediation company confirmed we did have mold damage and told us they would have to rip out half the bathroom all the way down to the studs. We decided since the bathroom was over 20 years old that we would go ahead and update everything. It was in our long-term plans to do it one day anyways.
-Oct/November/December 08- Searched for a contractor to rebuild the bathroom once the mold had been removed. You would think in this economy, general contractors would be on top of returning quotes but out of the 6 contractors that came out 2..that's right 2 got back to us with a quote.
-January 09- Mold removal begins
-April 09- rebuilding of the bathroom begins
-May-09 Bathroom is finished.
Take a look at the before and after shots. I love, love, love my new bathroom. I would spend all day in there if I could.
