August 28

August 28.
The triplets' due date.  Not sure I'll ever forget that date.  I think most preemie mamas can relate.
In a perfect world, that's when (or around this date) they should have been born.  But instead, they arrived 3 1/2 months early.  In my eyes, they are finally and officially two years old! They've come so far!  
They are walking, running, talking, eating, growing and keeping this mama extremely busy.

Happy Homecoming day Marcos, Sofia, (August 23, 2011) and Carlos (August 27, 2011)!! But most importantly...
Happy Due Date birthday!!!!

I often wonder if these dates will always be a part of me, I'm sure others do too.
 You look at my kiddos, and unless you know what we have been through, you would never know.  They are thriving and look perfectly healthy and normal (for lack of a better word).  And then, I come across articles like this ONE and I'm reminded that they truly are miracles and our lives could have been completely different.  So I'll say it again...
Happy Homecoming days!! Happy Due Date Birthday!!

One day you will understand why these dates are so important to us!

Picture Time...


The trio...Carlitos in the middle.
Sofia, always so serious, just like Isabella at this age.  She really is having fun! 
Brothers!! Sitting is a challenge for these two, they prefer standing and climbing on chairs. 

We celebrated with some frozen yogurt yesterday after picking up Big Sis from school, 2nd grade! Can't hardly believe it...and so happy the school routine has quickly fallen into place!

The trio is napping, and I'm enjoying the silence, plus trying to make dinner, fold laundry and working on invites for  Isabella's birthday party that is quickly approaching.

Hope to post again soon!


  1. Wow! Really Two, they are all so beautiful and healthy thanks to all of your hard, consistent, relentless love! I remember the days too, so glad Carlitos got be be home with you all, but it left an empty spot at Kaiser! Love that baby boy! I know I can only imagine the amount of work and lack of sleep it has taken you to get to this point, but what a payoff-they are all so truly amazing! Angelica you are a hero to me! XOXOXO
