I arrived around 3 on Saturday afternoon. All was quiet and no one was crying or fussing. The sunlight was flowing through the two big windows in their colorful living room. Oliver was fast asleep in his swing by a window. Zoe and Quinn were each held by Christina and her mother-in-law. Both girls were smiling and observing me with they’re big beautiful eyes. Then, Ozzie (one of my favorite sweet dogs) greeted me with some drive-by leg kisses. Grandma handed Quinn to me and ushered Ozzie to the backyard. Holding/cradling a 6 month old baby is good for the soul. Sigh.
I must say, Christina is such a wonderful new mom. She and Justin have really tackled raising triplets like it’s no big deal. She’s so organized, but still has fun with the babes. She can hold a baby in one arm while sitting on the ground and reach over and pick another baby up at the same time (!) She’s also great at photographing and documenting the babies as they grow. (Check out Christina’s awesome blog). There’s so much love in their house it just might explode.
For the next two hours we cuddled with the babies, caught up on life, looked at some of the cutest little outfits that her mother-in-law has sewn/crocheted, watched Ollie sleep peacefully in his swing, photographed the babies, giggled with (and at) the babies, fed Ollie, and as Ollie awoke Quinn went down for a nap.
Christina, thanks for letting me play with your adorable babies and take some photos. I can’t wait to see them again soon! Here’s a sneak peek to some of my favorites. More to come soon.
