    The only thing that makes me nervous now is I don't think the Prius can handle another carseat. Three kids no problem, three booster seats maybe, but we may have to cross our fingers for a hybrid minivan soon! :p

    Congratulations! You've been busy!

    Do you have two or three?

    iVillage has a great carseat forum that I used to frequent when my youngest was little. A frequent question over there are "three across" scenarios - what carseats will fit three across on a bench seat in what cars. New carseats will probably be cheaper than a minivan, so it's something you might want to look into.

    Congratulations. That's great. Love the picture of the two.

    BTW, efusco has managed to get some sorta combination of three across in the rear. When the time comes you can search for his posts and pictures on the subject

    Congratulations!

    Suggested nicknames for kids: Call one "Pulse" and the other "Glide".

    Thanks, everyone, for the warm wishes!

    Asha Lynn.

    I have two so far. I'll check iVillage out! Thanks!

    I do remember that. It looked like he was pushing it a little, though if I remember correctly.

    My wife says no. :-(

    Oh, selling the Prius is out of the question. We'll just be replacing our Honda sedan in the next few years here.

    Ugh, it's been a long week. The worst part is that mom caught pnemonia and I have some nasty something (doctors don't know) that makes me want to rip my tonsils out. :p

    Anyway, on a more positive note, thanks again for the encouragement and compliments! The girls really are a joy!

    Congratulations! I still only have the 1 baby to haul around in the Prius, and I won't have another for at least another 9 months (hopefully longer :D).
