Sister's New Chair

We have been looking for a chair for Sophie Kate for when she is just hanging out and kickin' back in the family room. We have her purple Special Tomato chair, which we love, but it is mainly used for therapy purposes. It's a chair that makes her sit up properly, it has a five point harness and a tray that goes with it so that we can put toys on it for her to play with.



It's a great chair but we were looking for something a bit more relaxing and this is what we came up with.



Her very own papasan chair...



Although this is what has been happening every morning after the big kids go to school and I turn cartoons on for this guy...



And then sometimes he's nice enough to share her own chair with her...



So sweet...



I'm not completely sold on the chair yet, we are still giving it a trial run. Sometimes she sits a little funky in it and it doesn't look like she's comfortable at all...



And then sometimes she looks just as comfy and snugly as can be.



Oh to be able to sleep that kind of sleep again. Alas, I think it may be gone from me forever. Can you hear the jealousy coming through yet?

Your daughter is so beautiful! I ran across your blog from Kelly's Korner and cannot get over how similar our situations are - my son Bennett is 2, has CP due to an oxygen depletion at birth (after a normal pregnancy), has a g tube, has seizures, cannot sit/stand/walk/talk, and is our total JOY. The journey has been far from easy, but God has been so incredibly faithful. Our website is: http://www.totsites.com/tot/bennettmitchell

BTW~ I love that purple chair of Sophie's- supportive positioning is always a challenge for us as well, so I feel like I could ask you 100's of questions. Feel free to email me at speckhome@gmail.com~ thank you for sharing your story and for being such an inspiration! Your 3 boys and daughter are all absolutely adorable. All the best, Kelly S.
