Meet the TRIPLETS

This week the triplets will be 2 MONTHS old, and we don’t even know where the time has gone! It is incredible how much they have changed in such a short time!

Though they are still very young, we absolutely are able to see some quirks and personality traits that are specific to each baby. What a blessing it will be to witness them grow into their individual personalities! I can’t wait to see them all grow into unique little humans!

Meet Mila (Baby A)

Our sweet Mila is laid back and predictable, which is great for a mom juggling 5 children. While I was pregnant, this girl was always defying the odds and measured ahead of schedule at every appointment. She was born weighing 4 lbs 14 oz. and was the strongest one in the NICU from day one. Now she is already weighing over 8 lbs! She NEVER cries unless she is hungry. She is attentive and observant, always looking around and studying her environment. She looks EXACTLY like her big sister Amari when she was a tiny baby, so Mama’s heart is especially weak at the sight of that little face. Mila is definitely a very special girl and we are the luckiest parents on the planet.

 

Meet Colette (Baby B, but supposed to be baby C)

Our Colette took me by surprise in the operating room when the doctor announced “Here comes baby girl B!” I sure was confused due to the fact that Baby B was a boy (Noah) throughout my entire pregnancy. But here Colette was, jumping in line in front of her brother. Colette is already smiling and becoming more animated. She has the chunkiest little cheeks that I could just kiss all day (and I do). Colette is a little firecracker and does not like to stick to schedules. She eats and sleeps whenever she feels like it, and almost never at the same time as her siblings. You can only imagine how fun that is! She likes to eat small amounts all day long instead of having “full feedings” and likes to keep us busy. The twins are especially drawn to Colette for some reason and they love to say her name. We are excited to see the amazing little person that Colette develops into.

Meet Noah (Now Baby C)

I could go on and on about this sweet little boy. Our ONLY boy! While we were in the NICU Noah struggled to hit milestones at the same rate as his sisters. He would take two steps forward and one step back every day. Until one day he decided that he was not about to be left behind while everyone else went home, so he got rid of all of those pesky wires and oxygen tubes literally overnight! Noah is very expressive with his face and has eyes that completely melt me. His favorite place is snuggling his mama, but he will never turn down snuggles from anyone! We feel so blessed to finally get our little boy. He will definitely live a unique life being surrounded by all of these girls! We can’t wait to see the man that he will become, but for now we are just enjoying our sweet boy.

I will make sure to post updates on these ever-changing personalities as they grow. We are thrilled to get to know them along side all of you. We feel incredibly lucky to share our family with you all, and humbled by the fact that you would take the time to get to know our little angels. Thank you so much for loving our family.

Love to you all,

The Sherwins
