Big Brother Jack has learned new skills!

Posted Oct 01 2008 8:27pm

Last Sunday we were busy painting the ceiling in the kitchen (notice the cover on the counters in back of the photo) and it came time to feed Jenelle. I told Brett it was time to teach Jack how to feed Jenelle and he agreed. Jack was very excited about it as well. See Jack holding the syringe (bolus) for Jenelle's g-tube feeding? Jack was so proud of himself and only spilled once when Jenelle accidentally hit the syringe (which is something she does frequently.) He even learned how to "clamp off" the tube!

Not sure why he felt it necessary to wear his swim goggles. Sometimes he like to wear them and pretend he is Spartacus (a cartoon character on Lazytown)! Someday soon, Jack will be big enough and strong enough to lift and carry Jenelle as well. And someday, only Jack and Brett will be the only ones able to lift Jenelle. My back is already not dealing well with her 30 pounds.

What a different life Jack will have, huh?
