An eventful year

2012 wasn't what I expected. If someone had told me a year ago that I was to have five kids, I would have said that was crazy. Now it is the truth.

Over the last twelve months we have gone from 'hoping to have a third kid' to 'expecting a baby' to 'trying to take in that it was twins' to 'picking up our jaws from the floor after having found a third fetus' to 'having three babies in our arms' to 'living as a family with five kids'.

Each step has been big, but also small enough to cope with. It's been joy, happiness, chocking, scary and a few other feelings along the way. I must say that I'm happy that all didn't struck us simultaneously - imagine going from not knowing if you were to have any more kids to be presented with the fact it's going to be triplets - that would probably have knocked me to the floor literally.

Nothing can beat this roller coaster!

Thanks for the support we've received along the way. Sorry if we haven't repaid as much as we would have wanted, and still continue to as for more support (in the future). What we do try to do is to pay it forward. We learn of new to-be-triplets-parents through our Facebook community every now and then - the latest this very morning - and we try to give input and support here as much as we can. We know how valuable it is!

All five kids last Friday evening.

All three babies sleeping in their bouncy seats while the rest of us (out of picture) eat our New Years Eve dinner.
