Thinking ahead to the convertible.

I have a 2.5 month old butterball baby boy. His infant seat goes to 22 pounds so I need to start thinking about what to do for a convertible seat for him. He is probably around 17 pounds right now, but is growing fast (born at 6 pounds 13 ounces). I think I have a couple of months left but I want to be looking for sales/deals on whatever seat we decide to go with.
My middle DD is currently 2.5 and RF in a Marathon (33 pound RF limit - DOM was early 2008, I think). She only weighs about 24 pounds right now and has lots of room for height. So, I do have the option of buying her a new seat and letting the baby use the Marathon for now, as I've heard that other seats give kids more room for their feet RF.
Cost isn't too big of a deal, since it will very likely be used for several years (hopefully until it expires) and I want a nice seat that is easy to use and is comfy.
It will go in a 2006 Town and Country van, in 2nd row captain's chair.
TIA for any advice/thoughts/suggestions!
