Matthew's new chair

Matthew got his new adaptive stroller. He loves it. See: Excuse the mismatched clothes. We are hanging out at home. He doesn't care anyway.

The seat can be taken off the stroller base and put on the spring base. This is what his seat is on in the pictures. It's like a very fancy (read: expensive) office chair base. It goes all the way down like this picture below to act more like a floor sitter. Matthew can look out the window.


or it can be elevated all the way up to act like a highchair. We use it in the kitchen while I'm cooking and we're eating.

I don't have a picture of him on the stroller base. We're leaving that out in the car, and it's too cold to get it out. The stroller has a shade and even a rain poncho. It sits rear facing or forward facing. It's SOOOOO nice!! As my pediatrician said; "It's the cadillac of strollers." We love it!! Special thanks to our wonderful PT, Chrissy for suggesting this stroller and writing the pages and pages of justification to the insurance company.

He looks SO incredibly cute sitting there!!! It is wonderful to see his little smile. I haven't "seen" his smile for a looooong time. It was worth the wait!

I love that chair! How nice that just one chair can do so much. Sure simplifies things instead of needing several different items for different functionality. And Matthew sure looks like he loves it, sitting there just chilling and happy. That's the way we love to see him!

Matthew just looks so great in there! He's obviously enjoying himself immensely.

What is the model? I'm working on a new page for the website to cover strollers and chairs in more detail and that one looks like one that should be included.

I didn't even notice the chair at first. I was so busy looking at the adorable pictures of Matthew. He looks so grown up. Cayman will be swooning over him the next time they see each other!

Ok the chair is nice but that smile is much nicer!!

I love Michelle's chair.. We don't use hers all that much as the double stroller is a life saver but she does use it to go to and from school and they use it there too.. Otherwise she is on the floor crawling around getting into all sorts of mischeif...

Yay for cadillac of strollers!!!

He looks great! Hoping you will give him time (minutes even) in upright. I have a post called "Tilt or Recline" - not that you have the chair. It is linked in the Equipment box.

Merry Blessed Christmas!
