We have been blessed to be able to purchase special chairs and a stander through Early Intervention and to borrow a walker to help Brett. Despite all the products out there I find myself constantly saying "if we could only..." make that chair higher, make his car seat more comfortable, make it easier for him to play with that toy and the list goes on. With help from his therapists and our family we have learned how to "MacGyver" odds and ends to help Brett with everyday activities - a piece of Velcro here - a bit of foam there. But I wanted to share the latest. It started as an idea I turned over in my head for awhile. I shared it with Tate and he mulled it over and made some adjustments. Auntie Kiki added some feedback. Granddad cut some wood.
This is the result:
What made Brett smile so much?
Daddy adapted our Choo Choo Wagon so Brett could ride too! An old high chair seat, some wood, screws and a bungee cord and Brett can now ride too. I love our wagon and when the boys were big enough to ride in it I was sad that Brett wasn't able to sit in it. Jackson & Peyton have gone in the wagon while Brett was in a stroller and it always made me a bit sad.
On our inaugural ride Monday night Brett talked and giggled the whole time. He wasn't the only one with a big smile!
