First week all home!

Well, we made it through our first week with all the girls. It seems more like four weeks but I'm sure it's just the lack of sleep. The girls are doing so good! They have all gained at least 1 ounce to 2 ounces a day since they have been home. They were weighed last Friday and Mckenna was 6 lbs. 2 oz., Madison was 7 lbs. 5 oz. and Carly was 7 lbs. 11 oz. We are so glad they are doing so well. They definitely do their fair share of crying and don't always sleep for a good consistent time between feeds but it's usually every other day that they are a little naughty. And I guess that is just babies. I don't know, this is my first experience. Here's a few pictures below. The first is trying out tummy time. Madison loves this! Mckenna falls asleep as soon as we put her on her tummy. And Carly does not like it at all. Carly actually likes being on her back more than the others. But we've got to start building up the muscles!

And I had to put a picture of Grandpa and Grandma Pendleton holding the girls. My mom has been staying with us for a few weeks and my dad missed her too much so had to come over for the weekend (and of course to see the grandbabies too).

Also, congrats to Justin and Nicole! They are having their second baby in February, number 6 grandbaby for my parents (all in the past 2 years)!


  1. Thanks :) That is a cute pic of grandma and grandpa! I'm glad that Shelley will get to have a break. I'm sure she's been a lot of help. Love the first pic of tummy time!

  2. Oh, Val and Shelly are cute grandparents! How nice that they can help you out. The girls are so cute and look healthy :-)

  3. Hi Sunny, Sue told me you had triplets, how busy you are. Congrats I am glad everything is going well and they are home. If you can't remember me I am from the BYU golf team. 2000-2004 we played together. Well good luck, beautiful baby girls, I lover there names,

  4. Hi Sunny! So glad to see all your babies home and healthy! They are so sweet and I am so happy for you! They have been in my prayers since I saw that they were born so early! Both of my boys were born premature so I know what heartache and blessings come from the NICU. Best of luck with your mircle girls and try to get some sleep! Ashlee Erickson Neuenschwander
