Just 10 days old -- meet Abby, Laurel and Brin. Hannah and Tom Hepner are already looking for ways to tell the three apart.

"Three sisters who are going to play all sorts of tricks on our town," says Tom.

Multiples don't run in either of their families and the couple wasn't using fertility drugs to try and conceive.

"When we first found out, we just sort of laughed in that nervous way."

Dr. William Gilbert at Sutter Memorial Hospital says with multiple births there can be complications.

Hannah lives in Quincy, California so she was brought here a few weeks before the big day - to keep an eye on things. The doctor says the little ones are doing better than expected

"they're going to go to kindergarten, graduate from high school, bring home bad boys...."

Everything -- times three. And for now the couple says there aren't any other babies planned - anytime soon.

"This is more than we bargained for. I think we're good,"says Hepner.

The doctor says he hopes the triplets will be able to go home to Quincy in just a few weeks.
