I've been without the ability to post real pictures from my own computer for a very long time. I thought I would do a blast from our very surreal past. Surreal because the picture below seems like it was a lifetime ago. Was I really that big? Did I really need to live in that chair for the last 2 months? But it was only 4 1/2 short months ago. I remember the feeling of missing their little kicking bodies in my belly. That is after I regained the ability to feel below my waist. After they were born I was so sad that I couldn't feel them close to me. Especially when they were all packaged in plastic warmers, not allowed to be held by their mama. Now they are all packaged in homemade blankets, kicking and grunting and sometimes sweet cooing, all together, next to each other, in their own crib, in their own home, trying to fall asleep.
This picture was taken 2 weeks before they were born. The sweet baby in my arms is my darling niece. It was kind of hard to hold her comfortably with the watermelon stuffed down my shirt. But here are all the babies inside their mom's belly.
And here they all are, 5 months later, outside their dad's belly.
And this was taken on the best 30th birthday a gal could ever ask for. I just can't get enough of my little family. (Seriously, who has triplets? What is going on here? I need someone to come over everyday just to pinch me that this is really my life. Let me know if you would be available.)
