Jonah Franklyn, 1:07 a.m. 4lbs, 3oz. 17″.

Jess is doing fine, only four stitches. The doc said they triplets were the “biggest and healthiest pre-term babies he ever delivered.” Technically, they were due July 27, but we got them to 31 weeks.
The boys are moving to NICU for about a week of observation. The only little issue was that Gradey had wet lungs — easily resolved.
Ryan and Candace and I got to share in their birth, which was really cool. Jess was uncomfotable lately and had contractions off and on for months. Once the “real” contractions hit this evening, she was done and delivered within four hours.
This went about as perfectly as it could have — mom is safe and healthy and happy, and the triplets are in good health.
