While Nova's Graco 4ever Car Seat was quite expensive, it's been well worth the investment! That's the way I look at it. The way that most car seats are designed, you have to end up buying 4 or so seats when your child is little, including booster seats.
There are a lot of pieces to it when the kid is little, but as they get bigger, parts get adjusted and even come off. It really is working out quite well now that Nova's gotten bigger and it's the only seat she should need until she's ready to sit in a regular seat on her own.
Essentially, it was well worth what I dropped on it.

Sometimes you take pictures that are just too darn cute that you just feel like you have no choice but to post them. Here are some shots of Nova Skye in her Graco 4ever Car Seat.
Ever since Nova got her Graco SnugRide Click Connect 30 Infant Car Seat, she likes to be in it a ton. That's a good thing since we're a very active family. She's got the Zuba design, but it comes in many choices. Whether she rides it in our '77 Winnebago, our '97 Toyota 4Runner, or her Graco LiteRider Click Connect Stroller, Nova enjoys every moment in her car seat. Enjoy the photos posted below.
Sometimes Nova even wants to play in the car seat when we're not going anywhere. Thanks a bunch to Grandma Rowell for buying it for her. She also has a Graco 4Ever (which is super awesome), but the SnugRide is more portable, whereas the 4Ever generally stays put since it can't latch into the stroller. We use both though, depending on what's going on. The 4Ever can be used all the way throughout her childhood, as it converts into a forward-facing car seat, as well as a high back booster and a bigger child booster.
