Now 8 months old, a set of rare identical triplets returned to Memorial Hermann to meet the team that brought them into the world.

We first introduced you to the Harris triplets about eight months ago as they went home from Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital. Later, our own Gina Gaston, who has triplets of her own, made a visit to the Harris house.

The babies are bigger today, but some things haven't changed, says mother Stephanie Harris.

A rare set of triplets went home yesterday after nearly a month in the hospital.

"We've become friends and family with 5 different nurses that worked with us while we were here. Friends on Facebook, that are checking in on us at 9 weeks old. Those will be friendships we keep for a lifetime," said Crystal.

For the Memorial Hermann Southeast staff, the event reaffirms their work.

"They're here for a visit, not because they have to be and that's the best part and it reminds you why you do the things you do," said Nikole Keenan, Director of Women's and Children's Services.

When it comes to the triplets, they shared a great update. The girls are weighing in now at 14-16 pounds each. Stephanie says the girls are healthy, happy and eating more than ever. Her own mother, Lynn Sweatt, marvels at how she gets it all done.

"She is so calm and I would be a nervous wreck."
