This is Jack...

Posted by Picasa

Jack is 10...he is great. He hates to have his photo taken, but when the twins were born he was THE ONLY one of the kids that would let us take a photo of them at family day at the NICU, and it is a great one.

The other thing I do is tell him he has to let me take a picture of him if he wants to hold the half naked babies, and it works!! Sort of manipulative, but so worth it. Here he is with Tess.

And with Lily. They LOVE him. He is great with them, he speaks their language, and he NEVER leaves them to cry...Which means he's an absolute softy for them. They are so lucky to have him.


Last night I had sort of a rough evening...meaning I was GRUMPY and Luke was out...so at dinner I was apologizing to the kids and Jack said,"It's okay Mom. We know that when you're trying to take care of the babies and get dinner together and everything it can make you feel tense." TENSE!! So sweet and thoughtful that boy. And growing up so fast. I am lucky to have him.

I agree with Angie. Jack is a looker! You are going to have tons of little girls calling soon. Maybe you can put some of them to work helping you out with the girls during the toddler stage!

What a sweetie!!!

Does it get easier from 8 to 10? My oldest is 8 1/2 and just starting to really be a huge help. ON HIS OWN, he started icing and cutting up the cinnamon rolls for the twins yesterday. I almost cried! LOL
