"Sufficient unto the day is one baby. As long as you are in your right mind, don't ever pray for twins. Twins amount to a permanent riot. And there ain't any real difference between triplets and the insurrection."
~Mark Twain, 1879

Babies

A family friend gave birth to triplets this past Monday. They made it to 35 weeks 4 days-amazing!!  Monster sized babies in the triplet world. Identical girls weighed in at 4 pounds 9 ounces each and their brother was a whopping 5 pounds 6 ounces. That's over 15 pounds of babies! The pictures of the new trio looked like they were full term. None of the little old person look that more premature babies have. I went back and looked at some of our first photos from March 2000. My three made it to 32 weeks.
Just 7 hours old

Easter-2000 They were 23 days old

They're a little larger now
