My triplets have arrived!!!!

It's been so long since I have posted and I have a GREAT excuse! My TRIPLETS have arrived!!!!

On December 24th, Christmas Eve, my 3 precious girls were born via c-section.
They were born at 32 weeks (8 weeks early), but they are all doing great!
My little sweeties are still in the NICU and probably will be for the next 2-3 weeks.
I am already so in LOVE with each of them and feel so so so blessed for these 3 little miracles.

Please help me introduce:
Kensington Hope: Born at 9:29 am on 12/24/13, 4 lbs 4oz
Madison Grace: Born at 9:29 am on 12/24/13, 3 lbs 11 oz
Londyn Faith: Born at 9:30 a, on 12/24/13, 3 lbs 15 oz

This is the first time I got to hold all 3 of my girls at the same time and have "kangaroo care", 
which is skin to skin time.
Kensington and Madison are identical and Londyn is fraternal.

This is Daddy's first time holding all 3 girls at the same time and having "kangaroo care".

It has been such a long journey trying to get pregnant and I feel so blessed God has given us these 3 precious gifts. Now we have 4 beautiful daughters (including my 6 year old daughter Makena).
Last year on New Years I was part of a Linky Party for the new year. 
I had to come up with one word for the new year to describe myself.
This is what I posted on 1/1/13:

1. One Little Word:
My daughter Makena was our miracle baby and I feel so incredibly blessed to have her!
It took almost 4 years to get pregnant with her and now we are on year 3 for trying with
baby #2. I feel hopeful because Makena, all on her own, prays ALL the time for 2 babies
(not just one!!!). She has been praying this prayer for over a year and
 it was her birthday wish for her 4th and 5th birthday!!!
Her prayer, "Dear God. I pray for 2 babies...a boy and a girl." Oh, the faith of a child!
So many times, I want to give up but her persistence and faith keeps me going.
So, I am left with one word for 2013: HOPEFUL!
