Some Advice

Emily went to Georgia last week for a whopping 1.5 days, that is a very long (distance) trip for a bearer of triplets and not a lot of time to spend there (A huge thanks to those who made it possible for her to go, and to Emily Maycock for getting married and making the whole trip worth it-Congrats!!!).  She was a nervous wreck before her flight to ATL, the only option available to her for the flight was any middle seat of her choice, she even called Delta and told them that she is pregnant with triplets and that she has a hard time breathing which can escalate to a panic attack, just so she could get out of a middle seat.  Believe it or not, someone at a call center actually listened!  She said she got on the plane, which was completely full, and there was nobody next to her!  Everyone else had to sit 3 to a row, not my wife!  On the way home, the same thing happened, she was the only one that had no one sitting next to her.  Moral of the story: when you are going to go on a flight, call the company and tell them that you are pregnant with triplets and you get panic attacks, apparently it works!

She had such a great time in ATL, she got to see her roomies from The BYU, and she even got on the dance floor (thank you to whoever got the photographic proof of this!):

So, not only did Emily have a great time, but I'm sure the triplets were loving the dance party going on in the belly, usually they are the ones making the movement, but now their mom was teaching them some sweet moves!

She got back on Sunday, because she had a very important ultrasound on Monday (yesterday) to get to.  It was the 21st week ultrasound.  Every time we have gone in for an ultrasound something has changed, number of babies, sex of the babies, etc.  This time she went in and there was nothing different!  Wow!  There are still 3 babies, and it is still 2 boys and 1 girl, heartbeats looked great.  Baby A (boy) was measuring at 21W6D, Baby B (Boy) measured in at 21W1D, and Baby C (girl-Taya) came in at 20W6D.  Everyone was measuring well, and they are not worried about anything at the moment, there were no red flags.  That is awesome news!

So, we have thought, and debated long and hard about what to name the boys.  Naming kids is a huge responsibility, unless you just don't care or think you are cool and it doesn't matter what you name your kid because you are a rockstar and you can do whatever you want in life.  I am not going to allow us to name a child Apple, Moon Unit, or Jermajesty (these are real celeb's baby names).  So, for the boys, we have decided to go with Dean Don and Harry DeGuy.

Harry DeGuy

If some of you think that I am kidding, you would be absolutely right.  We really like the names Bennett and Davis for the boys.  We have not come up with any middle names.  We like to do a family name for the middle name, at least that is what we have done with our current children.   Here are some ultrasound pictures for you to go "what in the world is that?"  

Taya Rebecca
Baby B (Maybe Bennett)
Baby A (Maybe Davis)



  1. So glad everything is looking good still! I love the name Davis (it is Chandler's middle name and a family name). The naming part is so hard for me. Stresses me out. Tell Emily I think about her a lot! :) Miss you guys!

  2. I like Bennett a lot, I would go for David before Davis, but maybe David is too traditional for you. :) How about Henry? Maybe Henry Hutchings is a little too much alliteration. Anyway, is Taya pronounced with a long A sound? Isn't that was Jenn calls Emma? Either way, they'll all be cute!
