How hasn't it? Danny's physical disabilities are minor in the grand scheme of things, and they've still completely changed the way we do things. Any time we're thinking of going somewhere, the first thought I have is, how will Danny handle it? Overly crowded environments we tend to shy away from because the sound can overwhelm him and make him tired very quickly. He also *thinks* he can do more physically than he actually can, so any time we go places, it's a lot more difficult because he doesn't want to carry or ride in a stroller, but we constantly have to keep him very close. We try not to NOT do things because of Danny, because we don't want Eric to feel like his brother is holding him back, you know? But sometimes it's just...hard.

right now I'm feeling very grounded. I mean, stuck-at-home grounded. Kaiden is too big for an infant carrier, but doesn't sit up well in shopping carts, even the ones with straps. he's heavy, so I don't want to carry him everywhere - but taking him in the stroller doesn't always work - especially when I need to use a shopping cart. Anywhere we go out to eat - have to make sure they have highchairs, and that those highchairs have at the very least a 3 pt harness. So I always have to have someone with me, or make only necessary trips.

Once he's mobile though there won't be much stopping us! OMG I am so looking forward to that!!!

It was really hard before Luke started sitting up well. I couldn't go anywhere by myself with both boys. Now, no problems..... as long as I can use a stroller or shopping cart. Once he starts walking it will be easier..... carrying him for an extended amount of time plus trying to hold onto Andrew can wear ya out lol!

I feel you there, Stacy! Eric will want up sometimes just because Danny's up, and I've tried, but phew! It is NOT fun, haha.

well its just different. Getting used to doing contacts, telling people to not stand 5 feet away and talk to her, not letting her rub her eyes, having to keep sunglasses on her even when its cloudy because hse is light sensitive ect.. life is just different!
