Ann-Marie's Birthday!

Ann-Marie celebrated most of her birthday today at the hospital with the triplets as she is doing "3-a-day" feedings where she feeds the girls at 10a, 4p, and 10p. The 7a, 1p, and 7p feedings are all done by the nurses through the feeding tube.

Ellis was excited to give Mom a party. He led her on a treasure hunt to find the card that he had written to her for her birthday.

Ann-Marie sends out a thank you to everyone for the many birthday wishes that came via text messages, facebook, email, phone calls, voice messages, regular mail, etc. etc. She felt very loved and appreciated!

Taking pictures right after we start waking them for feeding time results in a lot of fun stretching pictures.

Happy Birthday Ann-Marie!

Hi Mom!

The nurse helping us this evening didn't know the girls' bow colors. So now's your chance to guess which one is which since the colors aren't coordinated.

Annie took her first bottle today and did great! She ate 55 ml and 61 ml is a full feeding for her today.

That facial expression is how they look after feeding them and they get sooo relaxed!
