Mafia Accountant

Mysterio predicts that our little August will one day become a mafia accountant. We picked up this shirt in June just before finding out we were having triplets. Mysterio has two more predictions to make so stay tuned.

Proud Daddy


One baby home and two to go.

After 16 weeks and 1 day August made it home yesterday. He had a pretty good night last night and seems to be loving/demanding a lot of 1:1 attention and holding. Luckily, we are able to provide that for him with no problem!! Hopefully, Luke and Henry will be home early next week.

First car ride. First time outside for that matter.

They finally meet.

My Three Sons

Henry's the first son you'll see. Luke is the one smiling his head off and August is laying on Otis Redding.

The Big Weigh In

August weighs 7 pounds 11 oz and is 19 5/8 inches long.
Luke weighs 7 pounds and is 19 1/4 inches long.
Henry weighs 6 pounds 15 oz and is 18 7/8 inches long.

What a week this has been. The boys all had eye exams on Monday, had their man procedures on Tuesday and then August had to have laser eye surgery on Wednesday. We're glad all of that's behind them. The eye exams and surgery seem barbaric to us. Unfortunately, they have to continue to have the exams for a while.

We're beyond ready for our little men to get home and it's finally starting to happen. We're thinking August and Henry could possibly be home by next week. Luke will likely be home closer to Feb. 22nd.

While the boys would love to welcome you as a visitor when they get home, they are under strict orders of no visitors, excluding caregivers. Their little immune systems are not quite ready for a lot of interaction. Plus, it's RSV season and they can't take any chances. It would break our hearts if one of our boys had to go back into the hospital with RSV or something after such a long road of hospital care they've received.

Thanks for understanding.


Tummy Time

Henry getting some much loved tummy time.

August sleeping like a baby on his tummy. You can see August's shunt line running down behind his right ear. He's got a little bit of hair that's starting to come in that will hide that line in no time.

Due Date

2/3/10 was my due date. How I wish I could have carried our sweet little boys closer to this date. For the first years of the boys lives we'll have to remember their adjusted age. We've heard once they're around two years old they should catch up to their actual age. August weighs 7 pounds today. Today Luke is on Sipap for 6 hours, the canula for 6 hours and then back on Sipap and canula again. Today Henry has been off his canula for approximately 36 hours. They've all made such great strides lately and we're beyond ready for them to be home.

The Big Weigh In

August weighs 6 pounds 14 oz and is 19 1/2 inches long.
Luke weighs 6 pounds 2 oz and is 19 inches long.
Henry weighs 6 pounds 8 oz and is 18 3/4 inches long.

August and Henry are scheduled to move to the "Red Team" today. The Red Team focuses on discharge. Luke can get moved when he's no longer on Sipap. COME ON LUKE!

Big Day

Sunday was a big day for the Hale Boys. We walked in to find August just laying in his bed relaxing with no Oxygen. He did get put back on Oxygen around 8pm last night but made it for about 10 hours without needing it. Go AUGUST!!

Luke was allowed 6 hours of Sipap freedom on Sunday. The below picture is of Luke trying to look inconspicuous, hoping his nurse Crystal would forget to put the Sipap back on.
Regarding Henry. Henry was offered a chance of no Oxygen, but declined at this time. They'll check back with him later this week to see if he's ready. Henry and Luke got a bath yesterday and Henry still managed to take about 40 ml's of his bottle after the bath. The boys are super relaxed and sleepy after their baths so this was no small feat.

The boys continue to prevail in stinking up the unit. Apparently, there has never been a pod in Baylor history that has smelled as badly as the boys does. I can't imagine what it's going to be like when they get home. I hope that Diaper Champ knows what it's in for.

We'll post the weights later.
