Woohoo to Jacob!!

He has graduated to pill swallowing!!

Sunday I put a Claritin pill in a bite of applesauce and he swallowed it without knowing the difference. I told him afterwards what he'd done. Monday morning I told him about it and he swallowed a vitamin (3 or 4 times the size of his Claritin pill) on the second try. And this evening he swallowed a very large magnesium capsule!! (This one is twice the size of the USANA vitamins. I would put it in the horsepill category.)

This is so good for him because his vitamins usually taste nasty. (Corn is what everyone uses to flavor pills, so I have to buy capsules and open them up.) Now he just has to have his enzymes in powder to use up what I have.

Go Jacob!!!

Go Jacob!! I am so proud of you! Not too many 5 year olds can swallow a pill - you are AMAZING! Even your Aunt Candace has a hard time swallowing pills and she could not even do it when she was 10 years old! So you have a huge one on her! Good job Jacob!!

Amazing! When I think of the years of encouraging SOME of our children - who shall remain nameless - I am floored that he has joined the ranks of pill swallowers so early! But then, he usually amazes me....

Big hugs to Mommy and Jacob - and of course, Mattie, just because....
