How did we get here?

I had Monday night free.  Did I do a big night out?  No.  I went to the grocery store and took a bath.  At the grocery store I picked up some Corona Light for our weekly fiesta.  While in line, some cute college girls started a conversation with me about Corona vs Corona Light.  We laughed and carried on like three hip, cool, care-free young ladies.  As I'm loading up the minivan (oh did I forget to tell you?  The winner of the  debate....) I realize my two friends are getting into the car next to me with a look on their face that is unmistakable...it said, "OMG is that our future??????".  And I gave them a look back that said, "Damn right it is". 

Despite the minivan (which btw, I'm not going to lie, is awesome), how did we get so lucky with these three precious girls?  One year ago TODAY I was the most nervous I had ever been in my entire life, up to that point.  We drove down to Jackson to transfer the two tiny embryos that made it through the in vitro process.  I back seat drove the whole way home worried that a bump in the road was going to cause something to go wrong. 

I cannot believe how our life has changed in a year.  From the nerve wracking in vitro process...to the 4 am positive hpt...to finding out we were pregnant with twins...to learning we were pregnant with TRIPLETS...to the awful morning sickness...to all the scares and doctor visits and google diagnoses...to finding out it was THREE GIRLS...to the boring home bedrest...to six weeks living in the hospital...to the surreal delivery...to visiting our babies for the first time in the NICU...to daily NICU visits for 30 days...to bringing each baby home...to finally having all three babies home...to the blur of the sleepless, chaotic, hormonal first few months...to watching each baby grow and develop into amazing little baby girls.

So here we are with three babies and a mini-van (and a gigantic stroller).



And now, a video montage:

That, my friends, is how we got here.  Now if I could only freeze time with these three smiley and immobile babies.

  3. LOVE the video!! I cannot believe they are almost 5 months old. I'm still amazed how quickly your life changes as soon as they get here.

    Hey Sage! I don't remember what winding road led me to your blog, but since I discovered it (last night) I haven't been able to read fast enough! Your girls are absolutely beautiful (obvi) and your posts are hysterical. I'm so happy for your growing family and am looking forward to future updates!
