Our sweet little Ashlyn

Today we got to hold our third beautiful little girl - Ashlyn. It was an amazing feeling to get to hold her. We weren't sure this special day would come seeing how sick she had been the past couple of weeks. We are so blessed to have her and to now be able to hold her in our arms. We are just so grateful for our beautiful children. The lord loves them so much and he has given us this opportunity to be their parents and to raise them. What a special gift! I couldn't have asked for anything more. We look forward to holding them all again and continuing to watch them progress and grow. All three girls are being fed mommy's milk again. I'm so happy about that. It will help them grow strong. The girls have had a great week this week and we are happy about that. We hope for more good weeks like this.

  1. What a great week for all of you - I bet today has made your day getting to hold all the girls this week! So glad the prayers are working and the girls are getting stronger each day. Thinking of you guys often and what a long/rough road you have had.

  2. Beautiful! just beautiful! i am so happy for you - what a wonderful treat! Bless you all. love, Erma in Midvale, Utah

  3. It is going to get better and better. You two just look so amazingly happy. These girls are so lucky to have such amazing parents. I know my life is better having followed you for the last several weeks. Way to go to Ashlyn too! She is my little hero!

  4. I am thrilled to see the first pictures of you with the girls! What a beautiful moment, times three!
    I am so glad to see that the girls are having lots of good days in a row. Hopefully they will stay stable so you can hold them more often. I am a firm believer that babies thrive better in loving arms. I am so happy for all of you.

  5. What a blessing this week has been for you and Thomas. I will be showing my kids (14,12 & 6) these beautiful pictures, so they can see who they have been praying for. We pray for all 5 of you every night. May our Father in Heaven continue to bless you and your lovely family.

  6. Alleluia! The power of prayer is amazing. May God continue to guide all involved the in the care of your precious trio. Remember to look after yourselves too. I remember the NICU Supervisor saying to me "You are on a marathon, not a 'normal' sprint. Rest while you can as you'll have this one for the rest of your life!" She was so right!

    Good night from our little family in Australia.


  7. More great news, I love it! I'm so excited that you're held all three, it must be so special. I'm sure there will be lots of snuggles with them in the future-they're doing so well! I also glad to see YOU GUYS doing so well, I know this must be exhausting. Your girls will be home before you know it!

    Praying for you always,

    I keep praying for the days to get better, each time you go up there! I'm so glad all the prayers are working and the next thing you know, you'll have all three of your beautiful little girls at home with you!
    My BFF had twins that were 26 i've seen her on a roller coaster of emotions before. The best part, is that her twins are 3 now and thriving just like mine.
    Many Blessings!

  11. What a great week! I'm so pleased for your family.

  12. They are such beautiful little girls and congratulations on getting to hold them. They are so adorable. usually preemies are kind of alien looking but they look like just tiny babies.

  13. Congratulations, on getting to hold each one of your sweet angels this week. We pray that the days get better and better and the girls get stronger and stronger. Thank you for sharing you faith, hope and courage with us as well as your precious little girls. You are an amazing family.
