Maxwell is really starting to understand the concept of his Gtube...and it is incredibly fun and cute! And quite smart too! :)
Whenever he sees me preparing a syringe of formula and medicine or programming his feeding pump, he lifts up his shirt!!! :) And then he puts his sweet lil' finger on the small hole of the Gtube. Not only is that sooooo clever, but what fantastic fine motor skills!
We had a very fun moment the other day with this new skill, and Jackson (Max's cousin) continues to replay it every day for me. (He loves telling stories over and over again! Such a cutie pie! And most importantly, he is sooooo sweet with Max!)
This is how it goes...
Jackson: "Amy, remember that day when you asked Maxwell if he wanted to eat, and he lifted his shirt?"
Amy: "Yes I remember Jackson, that was funny, wasn't it?" (How could I forget Jackson, we just talked about it ten minutes ago???)
Jackson: "That was funny becausse you were trying to feed him in his mouth, but he thought you were going to give it to him in his tummy. ha ha ha ha"
* On a side note, Max's oral feeding has not improved. It is pretty much non-existent and continues to be a source of daily frustration. But when he is being so cute and funny about the gtube, how can you complain? I feel blessed! :)
