And Here They Are

We finally got to naming the three little boys. I guess they weren't quite 48 hours old yet so I'm not feeling too badly about it. Here they are:

Samuel Joseph was born at 14:56 on Wednesday, October 8, 2008. He weighed 5 lbs 4 oz,(length TBD).

Next came Isaac Thomas, also born at 14:56 on Wednesday, October 8, 2008. Isaac weighed 5 lbs 2.9 oz and was 18.5 inches long.

And finally, Alexander Steven was born at 14:57 on Wednesday, October 08, 2008. Alex weighed 6 lbs 1 oz and was 20.1 inches long.

The boys and mom are doing pretty well. Alex will be in the NICU for a little while longer. His breathing issues have been resolved and we are just waiting for the last of the antibiotic. Big sister Amelia got to visit yesterday. The visit went really well, even if we had to work to keep Amelia from jumping on Mommy.

As you can see, the nurses have helped us keep the babies straight

Precious Precious Precious! I love the names! Miss Amelia looks pretty thrilled!

I'm dying to know if your mom still holds the record for correct guesses on grandchildren.

I cannot wait to see them in person!! They are beautiful! Imagine what they feel like with all that open space around them- its probably frightening if babies can feel that way!!

Baby said...

congratulations!!! i found your blog randomly, and i was thrilled. i am currently 32w3d with BBG triplets, and i'm finding it hard to believe i can go much further. your 36w success gives me hope :) i speak from experience when i say i know exactly how much of a challenge it is!!! way to go, and lots of love to your babies.

My mom still has a pretty good track record, but she guessed two boys and a girl. I think that third boy surprised us all. Even the doc said he thought we'd have one girl in there!

They are sooooo cute!!! Great, strong names for big, strong boys. I can't believe you're all going home tomorrow. Take care of yourself, Christy!

The boys are absolutely beautiful...or...handsome might be the proper terminology! I don't know how you held out on finding the genders! I had always wanted to keep it a secret too, but with 3...I figured this operation requires some additional planning. Love the names you picked...Samuel was on our list too! Congrats again, and soak it all up because with those awesome weights they'll be coming on home with not much recovery time for you! Isn't it such a blessing to finally meet them after carrying them around for 8 months! Best wishes,
-Erin & Steve & the boys)

Beautiful. We have a Sam also. He's a total mama's boy and so beautiful. I know all your boys will be so precious to you and they'll be so fun for big sis to play with as the years go by.
