    Infants delight in having an impact ...

    I would like to know the difference in meaning between "1" and "2"?
    1. Infants delight in having an impact and in creating change.
    2. Infants delight in having an impact, in creating change.

    Re: and comma

    Sentence one is about doing two things separately.

    Sentence two is about doing/achieving two things together.

    Re: and comma

    Generally, infants don't have the sort of aspirations you indicate. What are you calling an infant?
