The last of the all-girl quintuplets ever born in the United States joined her three siblings at their League City, Texas, home on Monday after being released from Women’s Hospital of Texas after three months in intensive care.

Danielle and Adam Busby, who are also parents to 4-year-old daughter, Blayke, made international news when Danielle delivered all-girl quintuplets in Houston on April 8. Born at just 28 weeks, they weighed between 2 lbs. and 2 lbs. 6 oz.

Now that the girls are finally home, the proud parents said they’re now looking forward to seeing their babies’ personalities emerge, the Houston Chronicle reported.

“It’s pretty crazy, I’m so glad we finally get to see them all together, and just stare at them all by each other,” Danielle, 31, told the newspaper about the quintuplets – Ava, Olivia, Hazel, Parker and Riley.

For the meantime, the couple has adopted a color coordination system to manage the quintuplets’ clothes and pacifiers.

“Not everything is gonna be in their color, but when we find five of something, or five of the same things that might be like, in the different color, it might not be their colors, but if it’s something five, we buy it.” Danielle said. “We try to get it, because it’s just so hard, like their pacifiers, I saw five different colors, bam. Done.”

The 3-month-old babies also go through 40 bottles and roughly 60 diapers daily. Adam said the formula bill will be “a little over $2,000” a month.

To help with the steep costs, a GoFundMe page was created that has raised over $20,000 so far.

“It’s a little scary, but I mean God’s provided all through this journey, and so I mean, we’re not scared,” Adam, 33, told the Houston Chronicle.
