The triplets have arrived

IMG_5647

Maybe I was a little ambitious wanting to have a blog with new born triplets. This has been on my to do list for the past 11 weeks and I’m just getting to it now. But here I am, 12 weeks down.

On the 25th of November at 35 weeks and 2 days, Poppy Frances Kate (2.19kg), Henry William (2.25kg) and Charlie John (2.25kg) entered our life. We were incredibly lucky and were all discharged on the 8th day as they all fed well from breast and bottle and gained their initial weight loss. The only minor complication we had was that Charlie had jaundice. So really, we have been handed 3 amazingly healthy babies…all at once.

Pat and I have had so much support from our family and friends, it’s been overwhelming. You really see who cares and are your good mates. From doing the midnight feeds with us, cleaning our house, cooking us meals, picking up a crying baby or walking our dog, we thank you a million times over!! THANK YOU!! We really don’t know how we could have got this far without you all.

In fear of sounding like a broken record, the past 12 weeks have been a complete blur, filled with every emotion. It’s been filled with feeding (lots of feeding), settling, changing nappies, crying (lots of crying), watching the clock, trial and error, people coming and going, gorgeous gifts and meals. It’s also been filled with lots of gummie smiles, a sense of complete satisfaction that this is our family and a lot of love. I now get it. You have this absolute sense of protection and love over these little people. Stuff that mattered before…just doesn’t matter. It’s amazing and nothing you can describe easily (that’s totally not me trying to get out of writing more).

I don’t know when I will get a moment to write the next blog, but I will be amping up my instagram page for our friends and family who want to see their progress. I’m going to change the name too…as I’m 30 in under a month and the triple threat, well they aren’t a threat. If you are interested in following go to…
