We decided to go ahead and turn her seat around last weekend (since I was getting my car detailed and we had to take it out anyway) and she loves it!
Every time we get in the car she says "WOW" and looks around. She still looks backwards when she says "mommy" and then remembers that I am right in front of her. =)
I am so glad we waited until she was (almost) 2 to turn her around.
