One little, two little, three little miracles


The babies are here!


This is Mindy, Kara's sister-in-law, stepping in to post about the sweet new babies in our family. They arrived around 12:15 a.m. on January 7th and are doing well for being born over 12 weeks early.

Baby A is named Christian Hinckley. He is the oldest by 1 minute. They are each one minute apart. He was 2 lbs. 6 oz. and 14.25 inches long. Chris said, "So far he is the strongest. He needs very little support and is eating well." Here he is:

Baby B is named Gabriel James. Chris said, "Little Gabriel is a cutie. We haven't seen his little face since day 1. Hopefully he will be off his headgear in the next few days. He is doing good overall. He doesn't have that tube in his mouth anymore which is good news, but this first pictures shows off his bald little head with his little bit of blonde fuzz. He was 2 lbs. 3 oz. and 14 inches long:
Baby C, the little girl, is named Sunshine Grace. Chris said, "She's so pretty! She has her mommy's nose and beautiful hair. She's having a rough time right now. She has a tube that sucks out excess air from the outside of her lungs, a heart murmur, and some trouble breathing. I have no doubt she will get better, it just might take a little more time. Keep her in your prayers. The nurses say her issues are minor, but we prefer no issues. She was our biggest weighing in at 2 lbs 6.25 oz and her length is still unknown because of her health issues. She is probably about the same as her brothers, though." Here she is:
As you can see, they are all absolutely adorable! I can't get over how cute and sweet they all are! Kara is busy trying to recover and is doing well. She and Chris are so happy to be parents and want to thank everyone for their prayers, love, and support.
