Texas quintuplets have been reunited under one roof, after the last baby was finally released from the hospital, Dallas News reported.

“It’s a little hectic,” said Carrie Jones, the mother of the quintuplets, plus a 9-year-old son, Issac, told Dallas News. “But we are just so happy, happy, happy to have Seth home; the hectic is OK.”

Jones, and her husband Gavin, have been updating the public about their journey to carry and deliver five babies through a popular blog, which has had more than one million hits.

It seems everyone is a little curious to learn more about this family of eight.

“There’s never a baby without a need,” said Gavin Jones, 35. “Every once in a while, we have one or two babies asleep, but it’s never-ending neediness.”

The babies, named Will, David, Marcie, Grace and Seth, were born August 9 at St. Paul University Hospital. Seth had a tough time in the beginning – he had severe breathing problems.

The babies will need medical attention for a while, but Dr. Rashmin Savini, divisional director of neonatal-perinatal medicine at UT Southwestern and Children’s, told Dallas News they were “making steady progress.”

The family has an average of 25 volunteers come in to help.
