Three 3 Year Olds!

It is so hard to describe the past three years. Having triplets has been the biggest challenge and the most rewarding experience of our lives. I speak for me, Clif, and Austin when I say I don't know what we did without these three.

I vaguely remember life before triplets.

We . . .
  • slept more.
  • laughed less.
  • never had anyone ask, "Are they all yours?"
  • never answered, "Yes, they're triplets."
  • spent a lot less on groceries.
  • didn't buy diapers and wipes by the case.
  • didn't get hugs and slobbery kisses from so many directions.
  • didn't hear toddler-speak in stereo.
  • had a little less gray hair.
We have made it 3 years with 3 kids the same exact age plus one "little bit" older brother. That is a miracle and they are little miracles.

This post would not be complete without the belly picture and the NICU pictures.
