Madi was just a few ounces away from the max on her car seat so as an early birthday present she got a new one. After A LOT of research and asking friends and family we went with the Britax Boulevard CS. We really wanted the cow fabric but I couldn't justify $50 more for the fabric so this it is. She wanted to sit in it and play with it and seemed to really like it... until we put it in the car. :D She HATES being in her car seat in the car and cries every time we put her in it.
