Tobias, born at 9:11 a.m. – 2 lbs. 8.5 oz., 14.37″ long (Baby B in utero)

Eleanor, born at 9:12 a.m. on Nov. 22 – 2 lbs. 5 oz., 15″ long (Baby A in utero)

Callista, born at 9:13 a.m. on Nov. 22 – 2 lbs. 7 oz, 15″ long (Baby C – ninja baby! – in utero)


PB&J were born when I was 28 weeks, 1 day.

Toby is on a ventilator but was down to 65 percent oxygen the last time Rob visited.

Eleanor and Callista are only on CPAPs for some extra breathing help.

You can call me Bessie, because my first attempt at pumping produced 19 mL of milk. Seeing as they’ll start the babies on just part of 1 mL, I already have a stock saved up!

Your thoughts, prayers and well wishes are beyond appreciated. We’re all doing well, but we have a long, long road ahead of us. Continued prayers would be awesome!

(oh, me? I’m doing pretty well. I’m sore but not in much pain. My c-section went amazingly well – no blood transfusion necessary. I hear they’re going to try to get my up on my feet tonight. Owie! But I’ll do it. I’m a champ, just like my three gorgeous babies.)

(oh, Rob? He can’t stop grinning and staring at his bracelets that claim the babies as his. He’s been to see them several times. To say he is a proud papa is the understatement of the century.)

If you’re feeling clicky, mosey on over to the sidebar and vote for What the Blog? for best overall in The Bump’s 2nd Mommy Blog Awards. An iPad would be pretty sweet about now, right?

    Congratulations to your family. The babies are all beautiful and I hope your NICU stay is short and uneventful! I’m curious – what are the babies’ middle names? I’m 33w with a singleton and we’re stumped on boy names, so I’m exploring any and all names of new babies!!

    I’m also a c-section mama — take care of yourself and let everyone help you!!
