we did it

we conquered the bath!!!!
that seem menial but this is a HUGE deal!!!
(months of working with OT has paid off)

sofie's preemie-ness has brought with it some challenges and to see such an accomplishment is well, just delightful!  around these parts we love occupational therapy (sensory...yikes) so right now, we are doing the happy dance for Wendy, our OT!!!!

until this week, sofie couldn't even hear water running in the bathroom without having a panic attack.  we have slowly progressed to touching moist things, to playing with wet objects to splashing in water...all with a lot of other stuff (brushing and joint compressions).

but, it doesn't matter...

we came
we saw
we conquered the bath!!!

WOOOOHOOOOO! Oh I know what a HUGE accomplishment this is! Not to the degree you obviously do, but when our preemies conquer milestones it is amazing! It took Lincoln FOREVER to learn to sit up which made bath time no fun - especially because he was quite big. Ha! HA! Oh bath time is fun now though. You should celebrate with some new fun bath toys!

YAY! As another mom of a preemie, I know exactly how BIG that milestone is! My kiddo is 5 now, and still in OT as she has a dx of Sensory Processing Disorder. We *heart* OT! She has come such a long way since she started.......

Hope you and your cutie continue to have happy bathtime! :)

Cheers!
