Babies x 3!

A little history of the triplets... I think we'll start when they were born instead of re-hashing everything from before they arrived. The babies were born by c-section at 34 weeks 6 days on May 29th, 2008. Kathryn(Katie) was born first at 1:19pm weighing in at 4lbs 8oz and 16 inches long, Seamus was born second at 1:20pm weighing 5lbs 7oz and 18 1/2 inches long, and Helena came third at 1:21pm weighing 4lbs 7oz and 17 inches long. They were all in the NICU for the first day and a half or so. From there they were transported to the Special Care Nursery. Katie spent 9 days there and Seamus and Helena both came home after 11 days. Needless to say we were very blessed to have such healthy babies. I think a large part of that was due to the awesome care we received from our doctor! He took great care of our high risk "special delivery!!"
The last picture in this post is from the day they were all finally home and back together again.
