Wordful Wednesday: The Big, Big, Big News

In honor of the second anniversary of that fateful day in 2008 when we learned that we were having triplets, here's how we told our family we were expecting again:

Amelia, 22 months, and on her way to becoming the BIGGEST of big sisters.

We just showed up to meet family at the water park with Amelia in this t-shirt. It took a minute for the news to sink in. And amazingly, I was there in my regular swimsuit, 10 weeks pregnant with the triplets. A couple weeks later and I never could have pulled that off!

Looking back, I cannot believe I survived the shock of learning I had triplets on the way when I already had one under 2. Then again, it was so surreal to be expecting three babies that I'm not sure I fully believed it until we delivered.

Despite all the fears and concerns we had that day, everything has worked out. I sailed through my pregnancy, Amelia has taken her uber-big-sister role in stride, the boys are all healthy, and although every day has its challenges (and some days many, many challenges!) overall life is good. And we are very blessed.

This post is part of Wordful Wednesday over at Seven Clown Circus.

This is too funny. We totally announced our triplets the same way. It was Christmas time for us and we had shirts made up for Hayden and just had him wear during the holiday parties. Sometimes it took forever for people to notice but it was fun to see their reactions.

I thought carrying one was tough, I can't imagine three. If they all go the hiccups at the same time it must have felt like an earthquake.

The t-shirt is really cute, so is Amelia's smile
