Wordless Wednesday - sort of

I think they're both about 9 months old in these pics. I totally forgot about Kira's chair insert. Kira's physical therapist built it for her so that she would be totally supported when she ate. The theory being that she could concentrate on eating and not have to worry about supporting herself. I think it really helped with her eating skills. We used it until she had perfected her trunk control. I wanted to go ahead and write about it for those who are working with eating right now.

The highchair is the one Derek and his brother used when they were babies. The kids used it at my in-laws when we visited.



  1. Awww...they are so precious!

    btw, I'm loving the No Time For Flashcards blog I found under your resources list!

  2. They are sooooooo cute! Happy babies and LOVE the high chair!

  3. You have definite cuties! And what a fun chair. My mom has a chair that was their family highchair (she had 12 sibs) and went through countless grandbabies and great grandbabies. Not that we wish my mom ill BUT my brothers and I are already quibbling about who will someday inherit the chair, hehe.

    The insert is brillant. I have a now 13 year old Downs nephew. The insert reminds me of all the modifications we've come up with over the years. Isn't it amazing how seemingly simple things can improve quality of life so much?

    Have a lovely day!
