Valdosta - To say Christal McCullough has her hands full is an understatement. "It's going to be a challenge, but I think we can do it," said Christal.

Newborn triplets Tyson Cole, Hunter Dean, and Ethan Edwards are ready to head home. "Cole weighed 4.3, Hunter 4.6 and Ethan 4.4," said Christal.

They're only a week and three days old, but each one has already formed his own distinguishing personality. "Ethan doesn't like you messing with him a whole lot, Hunter eats the most, and Cole is very vocal!" said Tom McCullough.

And those personalities are the only notable difference between the three. The McCulloughs are trying to find a way to distinguish the babies once their hospital bands are removed. "Some people have told me to paint a toenail," said McCullough.

And the amazing part of this story, Christal didn't take the first fertility drug. She was only planning for one baby, since she and husband Tom already have three kids at home. "They're so proud, and ready for them to come home," said McCullough.

But the place they're going home to won't be home for long. "We're building a new house," said McCullough. Three new babies require a little more space, a few extra car seats, and one thing this family won't have trouble giving, three times the love.
