This was the very first time Canyon sat in his "big boy seat!" He absolutely loved it! Yes i know the car seat is in our kitchen floor but we just couldnt wait for it to be in the car befor we tried it out!! He laughed the first time his daddy put him in it the he had to make it his own and spit up in it too! People say that a front facing car seat will change your life and they were right! Me and Canyon are much happier with this seat!!!
