It is sometimes hard for me to sit back and think about what Al and I have been thru this past year. What an amazing journey it has been. God has been taking care of us every step of the way. We wanted children so much ... and God blessed us 3 times over. Then, He watched over me during what could have been a difficult pregnancy ... While I wouldn't call it a cup of tea (and wouldn't recommend it to you!), it was a relatively easy pregnancy ... for triplets! Just as a recap for all of you who have been following our story: Our 3 beautiful babies ... Jackson, Addison, and William were born on Thursday, September 14th, 2006. *Jackson (born first) was 4 pounds 5 ounces *Addison (born 2nd) was 4 pounds 11 ounces *William (born 3rd) was 4 pounds 5 ounces

Here are the 5 of us on September 14th, 2006! The BIRTH day!

And here are the 5 of us on their 1st Birthday, September 14th, 2007!

*Jackson 20 pounds 13 1/2 ounces

*Addison 20 pounds 7 1/2 ounces

*William 21 pounds 8 1/2 ounces

The above picture was taken at the end of the day on September 14th. Believe it or not, I was sad to see the end of the first year (but maybe not the first 3 months of the first year :) )

Thank you to everyone who has helped us this past year ... from Family and friends, to our church, Richardson East C of C. We couldn't have made it without you. And thank You, God, for entrusting us with these 3 precious souls. Thank You for watching over us this year, for giving Al and I such a strong marriage and for blessing us so richly.

And yes, eventually we will get around to posting some birthday cake pictures!

Well, we have so much to catch you all up on! Seems like August just flew by! We had a wonderful birthday weekend with so many family and friends in town. The morning of their birthday, we went to Portrait Innovations and had their pictures made. I must say that it is getting increasingly more challenging to get a picture with all 3 in the same frame ... much less all 3 smiling! As a side note, Mommy took sewing lessions ... and I made their 1 year outfits. That explains why William's it a little too big!

I mean EVERYONE:) Grandma Jack, Mimi, Grandaddy Pollard, Grandaddy Coblentz, the Coblentz Twins, Tulie (Tommy and Julie), Dananna (Daniel and Joana), Aunt Ronda, Great Grandma Smith AND Quenta! Quenta was on a business trip until Friday.

So here you are........ the FIRST BIRTHDAY!!!!
At least part of it:)

Lunch at the Dallas Aquarium on their Birthday

"The Bus" at the Aquarium. Notice the diaper bag on the bus and the backpack on Daddy. You never know what you may need:)

Jackson takes note that some of the fish are MUCH bigger than he is.....

The Coblentz Twins taking in everything....

The Day of the Party... What do you get when you add..

Triplets and two sets of Twins?

William's First Haircut!!

As we are over-achievers and all.... we decided to get William's first haircut on his 1st Birthday!
This was right before getting pictures and going to the Aquarium. The beginning to a full day!
He did a great job but was not all that excited about it:)
