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
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!
