Triple Dooty

I headed to the far reaches of 7th St. and Happy Valley yesterday to help Tina with the triplets. She has a nanny a couple of times a week and her mom takes the night shifts, but she relies on volunteers on the other days. As a matter of fact, she and Brian also manage the Saturday night round, so I'm sure she's up with them right now. I don't think "exhausted" quite covers it. All three babies are home and weighing in between 8.5 to 9 pounds each.
I spent a good chunk of the day with Braden. He took a couple good naps on my shoulder.

My aunt Yoshiko was there as well. We got to visit with each other for a bit while we rocked and fed and burped and held and soothed and changed the babies. This is Yosh with sweet little Alyssa.
I didn't get a picture of Davin, but I'll get one next time. They all seem to be doing well. Tina got a nap and a shower - complete with a good hair washing and I came home with a renewed appreciation for babies that sleep through the night.
