BIRTH day




Our babies were born on April 16, 2007 at 10:56, 10:58, and 10:59 a.m. I had a scheduled c-section; after 2 weeks of hospital bed rest the 2 medications I was on couldn't stop the contractions so the doctor (Dr. Mandsager) decided to take them at 32 weeks.


The first photo is of Nathan Robert. He was the middle child and had to have suction used to get him out because he was so far into my back. He weighed 4 pounds 5 ounces and measured 17 inches long. He was on oxygen for awhile and had a few days of bili lights. He came home on May 10th.

The second photo is of Karly Jo. She was the first born and the tiniest of them all. She weighed 3 pounds 15 ounces and measured 16 inches long. She was on oxygen as well and under bili lights. She came home on May 11th.

The last photo is of Anna Louise, she was the last to be born. She weighed 4 pounds 1 ounce and measured 17 inches long. She was on oxygen for awhile and had a few days of bili lights. She came home on May 10th.

We feel so blessed to have our little miracles home with us. Each one has their own little personality already and they're only 6 weeks old!!

Oh my gosh Jenny, they are beautiful!! Congrats!!! That is so great that you were able to carry them until 32 weeks, I don't see that very often in the NICU! I'm so happy for you, that is so exciting to have three perfect little babies!
