Keeping the princess busy!

After our tornado princess's day of chaos, I thought maybe if we give her a job, keep her busy, she wouldn't be so destructive!
Since her big brother is so much work, we thought we'd give her a Jaxson job.
At first we thought she could do Jax meds. She was excited about this at first, I mean those bottles are super fun to bang together...

But then she thought about the responsibility of making sure Jax got over 20 meds a day. Some life-threatening if given wrong, and she didn't think she was ready for that big of a job yet!

Then we gave her a go at getting Jax feeds, another fun bottle to shake.

But those fine motor skills aren't quite ready to get that tubing primed!

In the end, she found her job, and the one she's been best at all along!
Keeping her big brother busy, and making sure he gets plenty of kisses a day.

She is very serious about her job. After all, its a big responsibility!

But so far its keeping this tornado out of trouble!

Lacey, those two are a match made in heaven, what a sweet sweet relationship and because of the unselfishness of you and your husband you made it all possible. I am always so amazed at families that have a biological baby with down syndrome and then adopt another one. Thank goodness God put people like you on the earth.
