Playing with my toys in my new seat!
For the LONGEST time, Gavin would just lay around and was not capable of playing with anything. It is so nice to watch him grab for his toys and seem to enjoy playing with them! He has a LONG way to go, and yet he has come so far!
This seat is actually a stroller seat that removes from his stroller frame and has a base to hook into for in the house. It's quite an awesome invention if you ask me! Since he isn't able to sit up on his own, it's great to have something like this that we can strap him into so that he can sit up, play and look around in! It's so hard to feel like I'm stimulating him enough, since he isn't able to sit or really play by himself. He struggles so hard just to grab for a toy, but he is definitely trying harder lately! We move him from place to place all day long trying to keep him as active and stimulated as we can, in between snuggle time, of course! :)
His physical therapist has been bringing in lots of new toys and contraptions lately, so hopefully he's enjoying himself! I'll share more pictures of him later doing PT. He's even going to try out a stander for the first time in the next couple of weeks! We are excited about this! Hopefully Gavin will be as excited as we are about trying this out!
Have I mentioned how much I love this little man?!
