Our three little punkins have arrived!

Our dream of being grandparents has come true, and our precious little grand triples were born Tuesday, October the wee hours of the morning...beginning at 5:16 a.m.!  God is so good, and has entrusted all of us with raising these three little lives.  

Happy birth-day to...

Thomas Michael William Hewitt III (aka "Trip") - weighing in at 4 lb. 3 oz. - at 5:16 a.m. (Yes, he's named after his Daddy...who is a "Jr.".)

Finnegan James Hewitt (aka "Finn") - weighing in at 3 lb. 6 oz. - at 5:17 a.m. (our little guy)

Oliver Dean Hewitt (aka Ollie) - weighing in at 3 lb. 12 oz. - at 5:18 a.m.  (yes, they were playing "follow the leader!)

Finnegan and Oliver share their Grandpa Jim's name (James Dean).  Their names are so perfect for them, and we can't wait to see their little personalities develop.  

They were scheduled to arrive on October 13th at noon, but they had other plans, and couldn't wait to meet their wonderful Mommy and Daddy, and two sets of very impatient grandparents!!!

All three are doing well, Trip needed a little help with breathing and some extra fluids (not unusual for preemies), and Finn and Ollie are doing well.  They are all snoozing away - they have been practicing their ninja moves over the last few weeks, so they're all three tuckered out!!

Kristen is doing well...tired and recovering well - getting ready for the adventure to come.  Daddy Tom has been such a great support...and planner in helping to prepare for our #hewitthattrick 😀😀😀

We feel so blessed and thankful that all has gone well, and now we get ready to learn how to change diapers, feed, etc...  It's been a while, and we've never had boys before - so...let the fun begin!  

Congrats to Mommy and Daddy!!!  Your three perfect tiny gifts from God, will be the biggest blessings in your lives (and ours) -- forever!!  Love our Hewitt family!!

This post is short (which I know is way different for me), but I wanted to share our wonderful news, and also a poem that I had planned to post before our three little punkins arrived.  Great Grandma Marti wrote it in bits and pieces, and it came out so beautifully - from her heart...

Three Little Punkins

By Great Grandma Marti

We are three little punkins, on our way
We can't wait to get out and learn how to play.

We have thirty little fingers, and thirty little toes;
Six beautiful eyes, and three button nose;
Six cute little ears, and three adorable lips, that Mommy and Daddy will really love to kiss!
Six little legs that will love to run and play;
Six little arms that will hug you both each day.
Put this all together, and what do you have? 
Three little punkins you'll be so proud of!
But most of all, there is one more thing,,,
Three little hearts just for you,
So full of love our whole life through!

Thank you Mommy & Daddy for trying so hard; finally your wish has come true!

We know you would have been happy with just one, 
but Jesus had a plan to bless you both with us, us three little punkins...
And we're on our way, with tons of fun and our love all day!

We can't wait to meet you, and we know you feel the same!
What a friend we have in Jesus, and that will never end.

Well that's all for now; see you real soon...and, oh you'll be so proud!

Grandpa, Grandma, Kristen...AND Oliver, Finn & Trip

Daddy time!

Will share more as we go, and don't forget to check out Kristen and Tom's blog (now known as Mommy and Daddy)!
