One factor that might contribute to the in-car puking: snot. [sorry, should I have set this topic up a little better?] When the kid sits back in her car seat with a runny nose, and that runs down her throat, it can exacerbate her throwing up. Just a heads up (and an antihistamine ready). To her credit, though, she has gotten pretty good about maintaining her composure while she sits there covered in her curds and whey.
Anyway, the car seat cover's drying on the radiator; it'll be ready in time to go to Brooklyn for the final stages of the DT DIM [Design It Myself] Crib-to-Todder Bed construction. It's been a long time since we cut the wood for this thing, and it's sat nearly finished at the woodworking shop for
a couple of [yow] three months to the day, waiting for some final decisions on joinery. It's gonna be pretty solid, and though it'll travel well initially--I designed it to be flatpack-able--clean, invisible, strong hardware that still lets us disassemble it again some day is proving to be a challenge.
Stay tuned, and maybe watch for a pic or two.
