(just a disclaimer for this post and all future posts… please forgive typos. :-))

My heart overflows and there are no words to express to my Jesus the thankfulness Chris and I have for the answered prayers. Thank you for your prayers. He has HEARD and ANSWERED us! I have learned so much about prayer over these last 9 months and how crucial it is to our faith. So, thank you for taking your time to call out to the LORD for us.

We left the hospital on Sunday afternoon with all three of our little guys. We had a great time in the hospital with such an amazing staff. The doctors and nurses took such great care of us, and we were able to sing praises to our LORD every time one of them mentioned how “uncommon” it was to have ALL THREE boys so healthy and in the room with us on the day of birth! I love it when God shows off!

Just wanted to let you know that we are home, and doing well. Our first night wasn’t bad. Chris and I did it ourselves!!! We wanted to know how it was first hand. We were pretty tired the next day, but managed. Nancy came in from NC on Monday night, so we split the middle of the night feeding time with her and mom. It worked out well!

Monday we had to take the boys into the Dr’s for a little visit to get weight and jaundice checks. They are fine on the jaundice – still a little yellow, but nothing to be alarmed about. Their weights turned out to be fine. They are slowing down on losing weight, so hopefully we should start seeing an increase soon. Their little appetites are picking up, so next week at the doctor, our boys should be a little heavier!

They are just absolutely the tiniest and sweetest little ones. I am swimming in a sea of love crazy post-partum hormones! I am so happy to be a momma to boys! Every time I walk by their crib or pack-n-play, I look in and can’t believe those 3 babies are mine… much less… how in the world did they fit in my tummy?!?!

I have several things I want to blog about, and hopefully will be able to before they become jumbled in my memory. (I’m making this list mainly so I won’t forget all I want to say!)
– Visitors we had during pregnancy (I never finished that one)
– The Night Before Triplets
– Their Birth Story (not graphic, just what I remember)
– My Hospital Stay
– Coming Home Day
– Our First Night

These will come in time. Oh, along with pictures of the nursery. It is still a work in progress as Mom is living in it right now. The boys sleep in a crib in our room right now, so it works out well.

Here are some pictures of our first few days home :-)

The Blanton Six

Maverick, Crews, Warner

Harper taking a peek at “babies” (as she calls them). She has been doing great adjusting. When we are feeding them, she comes over and gives them kisses on their heads – even without being asked to. I held up Crews to her yesterday when his eyes were open. I told her that he wanted to say hi and that he loved her. She just looked at his little face, said “awwwww”, and then reached to hug him. It was so cute to see her (what now seems to be gigantic) little hands and body completely engulf this little guy. I can’t wait to see them grow up together.

Harper loving on Daddy & playing with him

Our 3 little Gnomes :-)

    Another blog topic for you: Do you breastfeed at all, do you pump or do you use formula only. This is purely out of interest sake – I have never fed three babies at once!
