So Long Carrier

     Alright, so I am not sure if I am alone on this one, but I LOOOOVEEE the infant carrier part of our travel system:
Chicco Cortina Travel System ~ Luna
     Yes, it is a bit bulky, but we travel (drive) so often, that Gwen OFTEN falls asleep, and I love that I don't have to wake her, just plop that sucker onto the stroller and continue on our way.  I am dreading not thrilled with the fact that Gwen will soon grow out of this (like any day now).  Am I alone with this feeling?!?!  Will I really be able to let it go?  Lol.  I know that I will, and I also know that I am probably holding on to it longer than I should, but I'm a first timer here, and I like comfortable things... and this was comfortable. 
     It seems, with MommyHood, the minute you think you have mastered "something", a whole new "something" comes along... and without warning :)  This seems like an easy adjustment so I am ust going to try and roll with the punches. 

Gwen's 8 month Dr. appointment is in a few days, so I am waiting for the official "weigh in" to start our transition.

I'll let you know how it goes.

I am the same way about the carrier! I know I should just leave it in the car...but it is so easy to just pop it in the stroller!

We have the EXACT same one as you. Even down to the pattern.

And yes, I love it, but DANG it's heavy to carry with my little chunk inside. And really, she LOVES sitting up in her stroller, or riding the cart much better than she likes being reclined in the infant seat. So hopefully it's a good transition for you.

I totally hear you on this - we love the simplicity and comfort that comes with Addie's carrier and I am dreading the day we have to change over to the big girl car seat. Plus, we will need 3 of the big car seats - which I'm pretty sure is going to set me back a few pennies - yikes! But like you, I know its just around the corner!
