Can't wait to see this film (and an update on the wee guy)

I'll start with the update on Turtle. He had an orthopedics appointment today. I was expecting it to go badly, because he has been crying in pain again at night. Rene kindly took him while I stayed home with the girls.

Turns out the Dr said he is doing perfectly. He x rayed the bone and the bone is still fine! That was the main worry. He also said that when he operated on Turtle's knee, he saw that his muscle, which was badly infected, had torn and was bleeding (I didn't know muscles could bleed?!) and everything. It was in very bad shape. He said it will take a while to heal, but it's coming along just great. Turtle is allowed to be out of his cast as long as he can cope with it. We've to put it back on when it starts to hurt, to give him a break.

He's still not bending his knee, but he's limping around, causing mischief as though he had no disadvantage. So it's all good.

Now about the film. This documentary comes out in May, and it looks great. It follows 4 babies from 4 diverse cultures, (Mongolia, Namibia, San Francisco, Tokyo) and it seems from the trailer that the message is one of a universal human nature. We may have different techniques, baby gear, language, skin tone, customs etc. But we were all made by the same God (I doubt the documentary goes down that particular alley, but I'm goin' there) and at the core of it, we are all the same. We have the same human nature. History, present, future, all over the world. We're all people.

But best of all, it looks like an adorably cute movie. Beautiful videography, adorable footage, lighthearted and sweet. Watch the trailer. There was no way to embed it here, but it won't take that much effort to just click on this link. You can do it, you know you want to.

awesome Babies trailer

and here's a weird pic of my boy and I, because I'm quirky.
