My Triplet Ballerinas: An Ultrasound Gift of Triplets
My triplet ballerinas are my triplet grand-daughters, Makenna, Jaeli and Maysie. On December 24, 2007, almost 13 years ago, my husband and I found out we were going to be grandparents to triplets.
My daughter and her husband invited our whole family to their home on that special Christmas Eve so many years ago. Obviously, we all knew Megan was pregnant, but we weren’t prepared for the surprise we were about to get of how many babies she was pregnant with.
When we arrived at their house, I was handed a card that said, “You must be so excited! Hope the time just flies and you’ll be holding that precious little one/s (the “s” was handwritten) before you know it.” Inside the card was also 2 ultrasound pictures. One of them was for a 5-week pregnancy that my daughter explained to me showed twins which I thought was wonderful. It was a different story for the 6-week ultrasound picture (above) because one of the eggs had split in that week’s time. I found this out later, but at the time, when I was looking at this ultrasound picture from six weeks, I thought it was still twins. But then, one of my other daughters looked at the ultrasound picture and said, “Wait a minute, A, B & C…triplets???” That Christmas was just the beginning of the miraculous journey I would take as a grandparent of triplet girls and as an author of a children’s book about triplet ballerina sisters.
