If you've found this blog, you already know the big news that after two and a half years of trying to start a family, we are going to have an instant family this fall when our triplets arrive!!! I've been thinking about starting this blog for over a month now, and have written a bunch of posts in my head, but never actually sat down and started this. Michelle and I bought a journal to write about this experience, but we haven't been great at that either! And sometimes I think "there is no way I will ever keep this up to date, especially once the babies come!" but, well, it doesn't hurt to try and it might end up being a really efficient way to keep our friends and family "in the loop." So we'll see how it goes.
As of today, Michelle is closing in on the 12 week mark and this news will go a little more public soon. I'll probably rewind the clock a bit in some future posts to talk about the experience thus far and get some of those journal entries in electronic form, but that can wait. At this point I think we are moving out of the initial shock and starting to come to grips with the reality of the situation. Of course we still have moments of "I can't believe this is happening" and being scared to death, and I'm sure those will continue throughout this pregnancy, but there is also a lot more practical planning going on and more feelings of excitement. We have appreciated all the positive responses and support from our family and friends thus far and know that we will continue to rely on all of you throughout this journey. Happy reading!
