Cub-date: 10 Days Old!


I thought I would provide a brief "cub"-date now that the boys are ten days old. Of course this is unfortunately all second hand as I have yet to meet them - just ten more days or so to go for me!

According to Kerry, everyone is doing well. Liam and Ciara are quite "helpful" though Liam is apparently the more gentle helper at this point. The cubs mostly eat, sleep, and use their diapers at this point and Kerry is obviously grateful to have help for another week from Chris with the trips (and of course Jean, who continues to look after Liam and Ciara).

I think what I found most surprising is Kerry's statement that it is in fact easier right now having three newborns and recovering from a C-section than the last 4-6 weeks of her pregnancy. Just another testament to what an incredibly strong and amazing person Kerry is.
Okay - I will leave you with a few photos from the Lyons Family photo shoot with the Irish Voice yesterday (the family will appear in the paper tomorrow) and some words from Kerry herself after their third visit to the pediatrician in one week. It appears there was a mix up with the triplets at one of the first visits which suggested one was losing weight while another had gained a lot of weight but two subsequent visits proved all three are right on track....from Kerry:

Here's today's Cub-date/Trip-date:

Kevin weighs in at 6 lbs -- his color is red although, it's really become "all but blue & green" Declan weighs in at 5 lbs, 10 oz -- his color is blue -- b/c he was baby "B"
Cormac (aka Baby Mac) weighs 5 lbs, 7 oz and his color is green.
We're trying to tell them apart by using any combo of clothes, hats, bibs, blankets, etc. in their color. I haven't resorted to the nail polish yet but i did buy it and, much to Des' dismay, am not afraid to use it!
