taking medicine

There's been a breakthrough at our house!  Carter learned how to swallow his pills!  I used to crush them and mix it with chocolate syrup, applesauce, raspberry syrup, etc.  Medicine time every night is not nearly as painful as it used to be.  We're all very happy about this new skill :)  What makes it even better is that Carter will be on the "yucky medicine" (steroids) again in a few months and now he can just swallow it quick.  I know they have gel caps, I'm just hoping they have them in a small enough dose for him.

Here's a video of him taking his medicine last night.  He always has to do a practice before he does it for real :)  Just about the cutest thing ever.
