FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Forty fingers and forty toes. A Fort Worth family says they were blessed in one delivery. Anna and Josh Hall welcomed their quadruplets, three girls and one boy on Monday at Baylor Regional Medical Center at Grapevine.
Baby Brooks lead the way and he’s the family’s first boy, followed by his sisters Sadie, Elle and Ivy. Elle and Ivy are identical twins. “We are just praying they are all going to be great sleepers,” says mom Anna Hall smiling “…great eaters.”
Mom says she couldn’t wait to hold them, “It was just instant tears; it was very special moment.” While the babies are in NICU their doctor says they are doing great and breathing on their own.
“The average quad pregnancy delivers at 29.5 weeks, and Mrs. Hall was able to reach almost 32 weeks, which was great news for the babies,” says Sherry Kappler, medical director of the Level III Baylor Grapevine Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
What makes this delivery even more special is that the babies were born on the day their proud papa turned 36.
“It’s going to be tough to one up this,” says Josh Hall as he laughs “Everybody teases me about paying for 5 weddings.” The Halls have two girls already ages 2 and 4.
They say they can’t wait to take their sisters and brother home soon. Doctors say that can happen as early as 6 weeks.
“We’ve been hearing 40 bottles a day 80 plus diapers a day,” says Anna Hall. “We’ll have our hands full.”
The Halls say they’re grateful for all the help from their families and church community who will continue to be there during this big transition.
