First Birthday Memories!

Well here they finally are!!! The amazing pictures Miss Amanda took for us at the triplets' first birthday party. It was such a wonderful day of celebrating the amazing (yet sometimes challenging) first year with the three best babies any parent could possibly ask for:-D Thanks so much to all who came as it meant SO much to us. Enjoy the pictures!

Here they are at the end of their big day!

The whole happy family:-D

With Grammy and Grampy Skinner

And with Nana...that's an armful;-D

Can you find Harry in the picture? He loved the wrapping paper as much as the new toys!

Daddy helping Harry and Olivia open their presents

Madeline reading her card...she is very advanced;-D

This is a very special picture for us because this is Dr. Bobbi Byrne who took AMAZING care of our three angels during their long stay in NICU. We cannot tell her enough how much she means to our family and how much it meant to us that she cam to celebrate such a special day:-D

Doesn't Olivia look to be about the happiest baby you've ever seen eating her cupcake?

I just LOVE this picture...all 30 toes we love more than anything in this world!

So Harry does not like sweet things so as you can see he did not really care for his cupcake. Olivia helped him out with it though:-)

This is such a funny picture! They are all looking at their cupcakes like "what do we do with this?" Well it didn't take them long to figure it out!

Sweet little Madeline:-)

Here's all five of us getting ready to sing the trio Happy Birthday!

Such happy babies! They loved being the center of all the attention:-D

Still happy of course...

Isn't this a beautiful picture of Olivia? Love the coloring!

Beautiful little Madeline...

She has a look like "I'm caught!"

This is too cute of Olivia! She looks like a little jailbird:-D

I love, love, love these pictures! After all the medical complications from pregnancy to premature birth--every one of their birthdays will be a celebration of the miracles they are. Congrats on surviving the first year :-)

Ash - these pics are precious. Looks like a wonderful day of celebration of life. I think that's really cool that their dr. came. Congratulations on getting through the first many more sweet memories ahead. Thanks for sharing your pictures with us.
