The McCaughey septuplets are 16 and say they don't mind that they're taking a lower profile than years ago.The children, who live in Carlisle, Iowa, became famous as the world's first surviving septuplets in 1997. They were on the cover of national magazines and featured on network television shows.But as the seven children celebrated their 16th birthday on Tuesday, the family told The Des Moines Register (http://dmreg.co/17JTyUP ) it's nice to live a more normal life.Nathan McCaughey says the attention was fun, "but in other ways I never liked it, all these cameras following you around everywhere."The parents, Bobbi and Kenny McCaughey, say they enjoy being able to have conversations with their children now that they're older.Bobbi notes, "It's fun to see the work pay off."___Information from: The Des Moines Register, http://www.desmoinesregister.com...
