Oh my gosh - we have three kids! Three babies! Three little people that will call us mom and dad! Agh! It WAS an absolute joyous day!
I'm not sure how to upload photos from the hospital yet - sorry! But, here are a few stats...
- Olivia Ann Byrne, Baby A, arrived first at 8:22am at 2 pounds and 12 ounces - and with a ton of dark hair on her little head. Must take after dad :)
- George Alfred Louis Byrne, Baby C, arrived second at 2 pounds and 10 ounces - and has recently decided that he likes both arms to stick stright out... try to swadle him and he pitches a mini fit :)
- Samuel Wright Byrne, Baby B, arrived third at 8:24am at 1 pound and 9 ouncex - he's tiny, but a real fighter... plus, he's got to be loving his new set-up, with lots of room and food :)
Today we are celebrating many highs! I got to see them twice, and DB was back and forth between the NICU and our room all day. Olivia is off the ventilator and requires minimum assistance with much of anything - she even tried a little pacifier. She is being fed what I can give her - yea! George is about to try going off the ventilator tonight, with hopes of switching to eating what I can give him soon. Samuel may also try to go off the ventilator tonight - from what it sounds like, he is currently acting his gestational age, instead of like a baby that is only 1 1/2 pounds.
Thank you for all of your thoughts, prayers, and well wishes! Today they were answered! DB and I are in awe every time we look at them, and can't wait for the day when we can hold them. Hopefully soon! So much to write... but so tired :) So far being parents is exhausting... and totally worth it!
