Baby carseat vs UFC. Who will reign triumphant?

The further into my pregnancy I get, the more limited my clothing options have become.  I now have four outfits that are constantly on rotation until the baby arrives.  Sometimes it’s tempting to stay in my robe all day:

That belly is definitely monopolizing the room.

Did I mention this is a Men's robe?

I was pleasantly surprised to walk down the hall this afternoon and find my husband tackling the tedious task of shortening the straps on the baby car seat:

I swear I caught him off guard...

Workin' it. The camera that is, not the carseat.

For the life of me, I have NEVER excelled at reading and following instructions.  Even step by step IKEA diagrams confuse me, but baby instructions take the cake:

It's all Chinese to me.

By thankfully Fran can figure it out, probably because he actually reads them:

But needless to say, the job was faithfully completed and didn’t require me to change out of the robe (phew):

Almost finished.

Now we just need a baby to put in the carseat!  Today marks 39 weeks, so hopefully not too much longer to go.  My robe is running out of belly space!
