Two years of triplets

Today marks two years to the day that everything changed at the Baby Home with the arrival of...
We never ever thought to be blessed with newborn abandoned triplets.
I can't believe how tiny they were back then...
And so, in honor of the day, I'm reposting "Triplet Top Ten" from last year, below!
As the triplets near two milestones (their first birthday and returning to their mother), we are running around with preparations here at Casa de Amor.

Today, which just so happens to be the two year anniversary of their much-heralded arrival, I assembled all of the pictures of or with the triplets. Can you guess how many there are?

And that's even before their first birthday next week, which by all appearances will be the social event of the year for Casa de Amor.

Even with so many pictures, here are ten that immediately came to mind as my favs from this absolutely unique experience:

March 11, 2010, my first picture with all three, newly at "home"
It TOTALLY hadn't sunk in yet...not even during that same night, taking the first night shift. Alone!

St. Patrick's Day 2010
Photography, dresses, design all by volunteer Elena Boisvert

Easter 2010
Flower crowns from volunteer Savannah, dresses borrowed from baby Fabiana

April 2010, first park outing!
with three proud {slightly sleep deprived} mommas

May 2010, Baby Burritos
(All I've gotta say is: Praise the Lord for Miracle Blankets!!! My night shifts didn't begin till I'd located all three.)

May 2010, barely able to juggle all three at once
Picture by Melissa Dickey, professional photographer visiting from Texas

July 2010, Happy US Independence Day!
And we thought they were getting so big and chubby in July, ha!

September 2010

September 2010
Right in the thick of the "chewing on the shirt" phase. Obviously!

September 2010

November 2010, Live Nativity Scene!
Never seen more adorable wisemen babies!!

That's 11, you say? Aw, who's counting.

And a few runners-up...
(There are 641 pictures, after all!!)

Gotta say that when all three pipe up, it's dangerous for the ear drums!
{Both from volunteer Savannah when the babies were three months old}

Christmas 2010
Definitely goofy!

The biggest blessing we've had in raising these babies: the V family, successful business owners in Bolivia. Their daughter, on the right, is the triplet's madrina (godmother).

So till the birthday bash pictures, that's it!!
