Happy 1st Birthday!
Exactly one year ago I sent out this email to coworkers…
I am in the office this morning, but will be working from home this afternoon, stepping out at 1:00 to take my wife to yet another appointment. I will be back online shortly after.
I was completely clueless as to what was in front of me. One year ago I was wandering around the NICU staring at our little babies who shouldn’t have been born yet. I wanted to be a proud father, but proud didn’t really seem appropriate. I remember looking at all of the machines and thinking that this was now my life. This is never going to end. That day I put things in God’s hands. I must say, in the course of one year, all of our prayers have been answered.
When I look back on 2007, it was truly an amazing year. There are about 3-4 months which I have almost completely blocked out. I remember the bits and the pieces, but I am perfectly happy not recalling the details. Around May, things started getting fun. The medical equipment was gone and we became a ‘normal’ family. Since then, time has started accelerating and the babies have been doing something new almost every day.
I want to thank everyone who has read and made comments on this blog, it has been a big part of us being able to cope with everything that we have faced this year. This site is going to be something I will continue for a very long time and will someday be my gift to the triplets. Consider this a birthday card. Sign it by leaving a comment. Even if you don’t normally leave posts on here, please make an exception this time. It will be fun for these guys to see all the people who were following their progress.
On Wednesday, Greta brought the triplets to the Christmas lunch at Arbortext. Afterwards, she took the triplets over to Briarwood mall to see Santa. What a difference a year makes!
