Our sweet triplet boys turned eight on June 21st. Which means, I wanted to write this post two weeks ago (and everyday since then), but as a busy mama and bakery owner – life kept getting in the way. Well, better late than never!
I thought it would be fun to look back and share cake and party highlights from their first seven years. The last photo is them getting this year’s birthday gifts, and is a foreshadowing of their 8th bday party that I’ll feature in a few weeks (once I get the photos).
Of course, though, I have to start off with a photo of them when they were first born. Is there anything cuter than these preemie triplet boys? My heart bursts every time I remember the anticipation and excitement and FEAR of that day!!!
People always ask what it was like in the beginning with three babies. My answer has always been… “The first year was like one long day. Then all of a sudden, we woke up and they weren’t newborns anymore.”
As you can imagine, the 1st birthday was cause for a big celebration!

Memorable Moment – With as much as they love sweets now, it’s hard to believe that we had to help them “smash” into those cakes.

Memorable Moment – Seeing them go from smiling together to teasing each other in a matter of seconds. Story of our life!
The boys get their tortoises!!!
Full party and cake feature to come.
As I reminisce about these past eight years (how we waited and prayed for them and now celebrate with them), I’m filled with nothing but TEARS OF JOY!!!
We love you boys!
