Briana Driskells got her wish — times five as her babies Zoey Hart, Dakota Faith, Hollyn Grace, Asher Blaze and Gavin Lane were delivered via cesarean section on May 2. Coming after two years of heartbreak.
And on Sunday, November 19, the 7-month-old quintuplets posed for their first holiday shoot with newborn photographer Ashley Childress.
“While Ashley was taking the pictures, I was thinking, ‘I can’t wait to order our Christmas cards. Each one is going to say, “Merry Quintsmas”!, the elated mom said.
The images came out better than Briana ever imagined. I thought they were going to be crying and screaming the whole time. But the infants were on their best behavior: They only cried when we changed outfits and when they got hungry.
According to Briana, she and Jordan, 26, prepare 35 bottles a day — which works out to $1,380 in formula each month. Someone eats every 30 minutes. And we go through 60 to 70 diapers a day.
Though there is “never any down time,” the sleep-deprived Driskells have never been happier. All five babies are thriving and Zoey, who weighed just one pound, 13 ounces at birth, is now 13 pounds. I’m super blessed that they’re all healthy. I couldn’t ask for anything more. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the Driskell family with the expense of raising five kids.
