Since the world of blogging began long after the birth of our triplets, I thought I should share a picture of our miracle triplets. I had emergency surgery at week 20 in my pregnancy and was then on strict bedrest for 10 weeks. Our sweet babies were born 10 weeks early at 30 weeks 3 days gestation. C came home from the hospital at age 3 1/2 weeks, weighing only 3 1/2 pounds! (C was 2.3 lbs at birth) D came home at 5 weeks old & weighed about 5 pounds; she was 3.2 lbs. at birth. Our baby boy, A, weighed 2.5 lbs at birth & really struggled to learn to breathe on his own. Our sweet boy came home at age 7 weeks and about 5 pounds! When we took this picture, we both remember thinking these were the most beautiful babies in the whole world!!! We couldn't see the wires and we had no idea how fragile they were!! What a gift that these babies are now 7 years old! God is good... all the time.
