CT200 Storage Capacity--Worried Before Purchase

Hi all, I've fallen in love with the CT200 and could own one this week only I can't decide if I'm choosing love and impracticality (the CT) where I should be choosing good enough and more functional (a Prius? something else?). After packing up from a weekend away, I'm not sure the CT's small trunk is enough. I have one child, age 2, and would typically be using the car for weekends away.
Any CT owners out there have any insight on the day to day use and storage capacity of their cars? Any CT owners also parents of a small child (with all the bags upon bags small children seem to generate)?
I'm currently the driver of an old Honda Civic (1993).

If you see your family growing and plan on keeping it for 5-10 years maybe a larger hybrid such as the avalon would suit you better. They're limo like in back and plenty of storage/comfort for about 10,000 more or as the salesman put it.....another 100 bucks a month.
MSRP on the CT is 32k and on the Avalon Hybrid is 35.5k. Even with the base CT and fully equipped Avalon Hybrid, I don't think you will have to pay anything close to 10,000 more!
BTW, the trunk of the CT (without folding down the backseat) could fit 1 27" luggage, 1 24" luggage, 2 20" carry-ons and 1 backpack. I did just that on my last trip to the airport. ;) I did have to take out the bar with privacy shade and the rear window was completely blocked.
