Carver got his new "Childrite" seat today. It's like a larger version of the "Bumbo" seat. I'm surprised how well he is able to sit in it. It doesn't prevent his back from curving, so I don't think it's ideal for long periods of time. We have a "Rifton" chair and "TriStander" for proper sitting/standing. This is just nice for floor time, so he can participate in circle time or fun floor activities with everyone else. It's also nice for therapy (hearing/vision). The company at www.childrite.com is offering a $50.00 discount right now on these chairs. They normally cost $200.00, but you can get them for $150.00 right now. Carver is about 32 1/2 in tall and weights 22 lbs - just for an idea of his size.
He looks so big in his new chair.
Carver got his bandages taken off yesterday. Everything seems to be healing like it should. He does have some subdural hematoma and some swelling, but that should all be gone within a couple more weeks. We're trying to schedule his activation day the 3rd week of November.
Kinnick is feeling better and eating better. She still sounds like she has a rattle, but then again, when doesn't she? Her stomach is still gassy and big.
