Avery sleeps on the left, Grayson in the middle, and Graham on the right.
Shannon made these posters in Illustrator. We're not very subtle with the messages we're trying to send the kids...

Tomorrow marks two full weeks that we've been home as a family! What a special time it's been for us, and what an amazing and encouraging story God has made of our challenging journey to parenthood. There were many times that we wondered if we would ever have one baby, much less three at the same time!
When we think back over the past three years we’re taken aback at God’s kindness to us. We’ve seen how God works through people to provide encouragement and refreshment in the times when we’ve needed it most. Through friends who cried with us and supported us through the heartache of infertility. Through our church family who provided perspective and much-needed guidance for us as we made seemingly impossible decisions. Through loved ones who provided practical help (like making peanut butter sandwiches) for us during a difficult pregnancy. And through acquaintances who have taken a personal interest in our growing family, and who have surprised and overwhelmed us with their generosity.
A passage from the Bible really sums up our feelings about our experience: “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy (Psalm 126:3).” We really have experienced so much joy through this process, and we thank God for his kindness to us. We look forward to walking with Him, as a family, in this next chapter of our lives.

Shannon and I are ecstatic to have our kids, all together, at home and we thank God for seeing our little ones through this.
We'll have more updates and pictures soon!
Graham buckled in and ready to rock! (10/9/11)

Turns out Gray isn't the biggest fan of family pictures after all. Like father, like son :) (9/27/11)

A close up of Graham as he was sleeping. Each baby still has their feeding tube so the nurses can continue their regular feedings as they learn how to eat from a bottle. (9/25/11)

Here's a shot of Tom feeding Avery this morning. She finished her bottle for the first time. Way to go!

My phone croaked before I got pictures of Avery's bath, but our sweet nurse, Karin, helped me get a few of Grayson. You can see here that he wasn't too happy about getting bathed (unlike Avery, who apparently thought she was getting a spa treatment).
But he was fine after we got him dried off and fed. And he looks very cute in his monogrammed outfit (an adorable gift from our friend, Meredith Newton). He's much less angry here. I'm pretty happy, too. :)

Shannon holding Grayson. He's doing well with the pacifier, and will have another shot at bottle feeding later this week. (9/11/11)
Avery and I. She still squirms so much - you can see her working her little hand out of her blankets. (9/17/11)
Shannon holding Graham. He seemed to really like sitting with Shan. I think he kept his eyes locked on her the whole time! (9/17/11)
