Quick Update and Some Pictures
I haven't been updating much because I've been totally exhausted. Between that, going back and forth to the NICU, keeping up with the holidays, and being attached to Maggie Moo (the pump), there's not been much time for updates. I imagine time will only become more scarce once the babies arrive. Anyway, I realized I never posted pictures here of the babies. So I'll do that in a sec. Meanwhile, just as an update, they're all doing great... they're just little and need some time to grow. Not sure when they'll come home, but it won't be long, we don't think. We think we'll probably have at least Ellie home by early next week. Our little man shouldn't take long to follow. Abby is doing quite well and probably won't be too far behind her bigger siblings, but she will need a little longer to grow a little bigger.

Anyway, here's a couple quick pictures:


Abba with the Trio (about 10 minutes old)



Smiley, Ellie, and Abby (3 days old)


Abby Eating (2 days old)


Karen with Ellie (2 days old)


Baby Boy's Fuzzy Head (1 day old)

They're so teeny! I hope they come home soon, and I hope they are sturdy and healthy.

They are absolutely lovely, and you and Seth look so happy being Eema and Abba.

I presume baby boy's bris will be shortly after being released from hospital?
mindycl From: mindycl Date: October 1st, 2007 02:36 am (UTC) (Link)
he has to wait til he's six pounds, and they usually release babies at four pounds. My son, who weighed 3 pounds 11 ounces at birth, had his bris at 4 1/2 weeks old, when he finally weighed six pounds.

btw - my 3 pound 11 ounce, 17 1/4 inch 33 weeker - is now at age 2 a BUSTER at 32 pound and 34 inches!!!

May all your children bring you much naches.

Oh! They are beautiful, and you look great too.

I continue to pray for you, Seth and all your little ones (including the big brother). Much health and happiness to all of you!

Karen, you look amazing! And you look so happy (or is that just the drugs :) I am so thrilled for both of you.

How on earth have you managed during the holidays? I assume you spent most of the time at the hospital and/or pumping.

You look fantastic, and the babies are so beautiful! They look like a very nice, healthy size. Pink and happy and ready to just grow up and run you around the house. If I were any happier for you I'd bust.

When I was pumping, I had the pump set up right next to the computer. It made things SO much easier. It's a bit hard to type, but you can at least read LJ and email while Moo does it's thing.

I'm set up with the laptop, but it's all I can do just to get through my email. I almost never make it to LJ.

Incidentally I think I received a box of stuff from you, am I correct? (the name on the return address was obscured, so I couldn't tell for sure) If so, THANK YOU! (and you must tell me how much I owe you for shipping!)
