This past Saturday morning, I decided I was going to get some things done around the house. After cleaning a bit and picking up a lot, I came across the only thing I have bought for our little one on the way thus far….a car seat. A few weeks back, I had washed the covering so that it would be clean for our baby’s arrival…in only 5 months (I can’t believe I am already doing this stuff! Ha Ha.). After it was dry I just tossed it in the shell of the seat planning to finish another day, which turned out to be this past Saturday. The last task of the morning was to get everything back on the shell, like the way it came. After only about 10 minutes, everything was on the seat, but the only trouble I came across was that one side of the harness strap was looser than the other. I knew this could be remedied quickly so I went in for the fix. After a few attempts at jerking the strap tighter, and fiddling with the back of the straps, I realized this wasn’t going to be as easy as I had thought and needed something else to get it done. Then, suddenly it dawned on me, “I need a body in this thing.”

I still have my three favorite dolls from growing up stuffed away in our guest closet: “Baby,” “Kathryn That Can Walk” (don’t ask), and “Rainbow Brite.”  Since Baby was about the size of a 3 lb. preemie I immediately cancelled her out and Rainbow Brite was ridiculously -misproportionate so she was dismissed.  It turned out that Kathryn That Can Walk was pretty close to a newborn size – probably about a 6 or 7 lb. size (at least that is what I guessed).

I took K.T.C.W. and put her in the car seat. With some maneuvering and a lot of yanking and pulling, I finally got the dang thing even and taut on both sides. Thank God I decided to do this now, as I would have had one angry baby in the seat at the hospital.  

K.T.C.W looks so cute in the seat now! I think I might just have to keep her in there for a while! Hahaha!
