Yesterday was our first Thanksgiving with the triplets, and it marked the first time we took them out of the house for anything other than a doctors appointment. We had a great time with our friends Nathan and Tina, Matt and Joy, Tim and Traci, and Brenda.

With the exception of a full-blown triple baby meltdown when getting into the car seats, the kids did great! We've always been big fans of Thanksgiving, but this year was a special one. We're thankful to have our children home and healthy, and looking forward to many holidays to come - triple meltdowns and all.

We thought we'd add a few pictures of the babies' nursery. Enjoy!

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...

If only this was true more often :)

Two Month Check-Up

It's been a busy week! Last Friday the babies hit the gestational 40 week mark. Normally that's when babies are born, but Graham, Avery, and Grayson came quite a bit early. For the past several months they've been catching up developmentally to where they would've been had they made full-term. It's pretty strange to think that under different circumstances they would've just arrived.

We didn't throw a party to celebrate them arriving at their scheduled due date. Instead, we did nearly the complete opposite of a party: we took them to the doctor (talk about a wet blanket.) The babies had their two-month check-up, immunizations, and an additional shot to help inoculate them against RSV. They all did really well, and we were able to get some fun pictures of their visit.

From left to right: Avery, Grayson, and Graham waiting to see the doctor. They've all made serious gains in weight. Avery now weights 8lb 8oz, Grayson weighs 10lb, and Graham is at 7lb 12oz! (11/1/11)

Moving the triplets is something of an operation, but we're getting pretty good at it. From closest to furthest away: Grayson, Graham, and Avery waiting ready to go! (11/1/11)
