When asked to describe her life with 5-month-old triplet girls and an almost 5-year-old son in one word, Pennsylvania mom Karae Coursey offered two: “organized chaos.” One look at the pics she shares on Instagram of her family, and you might add “adorable,” too.
Coursey, who is a twin herself, had a hunch she was having twins when she felt more nauseated and tired than she did during her first pregnancy with her son, Kanon. During an appointment, the ultrasound technician confirmed her suspicion. Then, a doctor came in to review the information and said she was actually pregnant with three.
After welcoming her identical triplet girls ― Bailey, Beau and Brook ― five months ago, Coursey decided to share photos of them, often in coordinated outfits, on Instagram to coincide with the blog she started as a creative outlet called Truly Triplets been helpful and fun.
“People’s responses to the triplets have been amazing,” she said. “I didn’t personally know of any triplets before having them. Now I look for other triplets and multiples on social media.”
Coursey also posts photos of her almost 5-year-old son, Kanon. She said he “adores” his little sisters.
“He’s very affectionate towards them, takes his big brother role seriously and wants to help,” she said. “He wakes up in the morning wanting to lay down next to them. He thinks he knows what they are saying and already wants to show them off. He knows they’re special.”
