Here are some pictures post bath time. They all pretty much like taking baths. Lukas splashes around like a maniac. Niklas splashes, but with a little more reservation. Gabbie would prefer candles and a glass of wine. She does not appreciate any horsing around.
This week, physical therapy paid us a visit. Normally, they tell us the exercises we need to do to help the babies compensate for this or that. This time, Pam was completely blown away. We no longer have to do anything special for any of them. They are right where they should be. Hearing that is definitely a relief, but hearing this kind of news is not as important to us as it once was. Through all of this, we have realized that God does not always give you what you are expecting. He rarely deals you the perfect situation you have laid out in your head. Things are never what you anticipate, and more often than not you are thrown a major curve ball. What's really weird is that I now see perfection as weird and boring. Of course you don't want anything to be wrong with your child, but everyone has flaws. I now view imperfection as a beautiful thing. I am seeing more and more that people who expect perfection from their children never seem to be happy. If I had a choice, I would never have let my babies go through the NICU experience. Looking back, it was the best thing that ever happened to the 5 of us, it completely changed my perspective. By the way, is Greta a talented photographer, or what? Also, to the folks up north, we are heading up there August 11th.
