Quintuplets Celebrate 1st Birthday


BURGAW, NC (WWAY) -- Five little ones celebrated a very special birthday this weekend at West View United Methodist Church in Burgaw.

Lorna, Layton, Carleigh, Rucker, and Eason Matthews all turned one year old this Friday and even had their own birthday cakes to remember it by.

Parents of the adorable quintuplets say the quints are a handfull, but they could not be any happier.

"We are blessed. I mean, we could not have had a better outcome," said Carmen Matthews. "There was a lot of prayer that was going around for us, and making sure the babies were healthy. They got here healthy. We could not be any more blessed than we are."

"Would not trade it for anything," said Mike Matthews.

Carmen and Mike say it was a year full of firsts for the babies. So far, the quintuplets can say "dada" and "mama" pretty well.
