BUTTE — The rare identical triplets born to a Butte woman last fall are nearly seven months old and for the most part, thriving.
The Whitaker triplets — the sons of Nikki Whitaker of Butte — are pictured recently. They are, from left, Cooper, Cameron and Robert. The three, born last fall in Seattle, are rare identical triplets. Two remain hospitalized until their lungs develop, and the third is with his mom.
