Happy Valentines Day!

Now that all three kids are proficiently crawling, I am not sure depicting them as angels is necessarily accurate. They are all over the place at this point and, for the most part, it's hilarious. They are in the process of child proofing our house right now. The good thing is that all three kids understand the word "no", and 2 of them obey it. You're correct if you guessed that Lukas is the naughty one. When told "no" both Niklas and Gabbie immediately stop and pull away. Lukas grins and laughs. It's so fun now to come home from work and have three excited little people crawling to get to me. Today when I got home from work Gabbie greeted me with a "Bye-Bye" and a wave. I think She thinks it's like aloha.

Tomorrow is a big day for Niklas. This will be the first follow up since his latest shunt revision in October. The poor little guy (along with his siblings) got 5 shots yesterday and will now have to undergo a CAT scan tomorrow. We are really praying that things look good as we don't really want him to endure another surgery right now. Nonetheless, I couldn't be more thankful as our life couldn't be more blessed. I could not ask for a more perfect family (Greta really is an Angel). Greta found a quote today that I think sums up how we have dealt with all of this...

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance the rain

I like that quote A LOT. It reminds me of this quote:

"Sometimes the Lord calms the storm; sometimes He lets the storm rage and calms His child."

Stay strong and stay focused no matter what the news is and as always, thank you for sharing with all of us!

PS: (Happy Early Birthday, Greta!)

This is proof that my granchildren really are angels and that God continues to watch over them. Way to go today Niklas; glad your appointment is over. Look forward to seeing my little angels next week.
