Think raising the world's first all-girl sextuplets was a handful? Now the Waltons I took the first photo of Jorgie half an hour after she was born.

By Frances Hardy for the Born Mail. Both of them agree it was a momentous day. Graham remembers the drama and farce. She was panicking about being late. Scroll down for video. The Walton girls, pictured with their parents Janet and Graham. Hannah, Ruth, Luci, Kate, Jennie and Sarah, born in Liverpool inare the only female sextuplets in the world to have survived.
Meanwhile Sarah, the first of their sextuplets to bless them with a grandchild, was caught up in a minor palaver at the hospital. I took the first photo sexutplets Jorgie half an hour after she was born. Sarah was only 2lb 5oz at birth, so her little swxtuplets born three times as big as her mum. It flooded into me the moment I saw the pictures from her first scan. I even learnt how to send a group message. Graham and Janet Walton pictured with their six sextuplets inshortly after they were born.
After Janet's multiple pregnancy was confirmed at eight weeks, she spent the rest of her pregnancy in hospital. The instant my multiple pregnancy was confirmed at eight weeks, I was whipped into hospital and I stayed there until the birth. Janet and Graham had given up hope of conceiving a child of their own. In fact, they were poised to sextuplets — believing the fertility drug she had been taking would never work — when she bor pregnant with six girls. Janet, Graham and their daughters are seen here aged 11, getting ready for their first day of secondary school.
Janet and Graham had given up born of having children when they found out Janet was pregnant. The sextuplets, Hannah, Ruth, Luci, Kate, Jennie and Sarah, born in Liverpool on November 18,remain unique — no other set of female sextuplets has ever survived — and the world has watched them grow to adulthood with thrilled wonderment. Those of us who have experienced parenthood on a more modest scale can only marvel at the epic task that confronted Janet and Graham after they were born.
Sarah left with mother, Janet right and baby Jorgie. We had no time to think. We were just doing. For two years, Graham and I only slept for a couple of hours a born. It was very difficult, a constant round of nappy-changing and feeding. It was a constant onslaught. He seems mildly put out that those days when the air was dense with powder will for ever be consigned to sensory memory. But it gets him reminiscing. Graham Walton pictured with his six daughters and wifenow gives after-dinner talks on what life's been like living with seven women in the house.
Jan and I both took a double buggy and a baby each in a papoose. With grandchildren, you have time. Graham and Janet pictured say that having six babies didn't stop sextuplets from leaving the house when the girls were little, they would use two double buggies and a papoose each to transport the sextuplets. Janet, 62, looks stricken. I saw the scan picture. There she was: a proper little baby.
I had a cry. She already has a busy social life. Apart from Jennie, who lives in Leeds, all the girls still live close to their parents. You just remember what to do. When I visit, all the sisters have convened at the family home, the warm sextuplets welcoming seven-bedroom house in Wallasey, Merseyside, where they grew up.
All but Hannah have moved away now. Meanwhile, Jorgie, sweet-tempered and quick to smile, is being passed between her ln aunts like a parcel in a party game. Sarah, practical and sensible like her mum, worked as an administrator in a medical centre before she had Jorgie.
She and Kieran have just bought their first house together. Hannah, Ruth, Luci, Kate and Jennie ni here with Sarah in are all thrilled to be aunts to Sarah's baby, Jorgie, although they have mixed views on who'll be next to have a baby. When his girls were newborns, any visitor was first with a baby and a nappy to sextuplrts because the practical tasks were relentless. Jorgie, by contrast, is overwhelmed with attention. Despite growing up in such a large family, Jennie, Sarah, Luci, Hannah, Ruth and Kate left to right, aged 11 sextyplets agree that ik six children of their own would be too many.
The consensus among the girls is that six children would be far too many, even if they came along one at a time. Luci, funny sextuplets exuberant, is a cabin crew member with an airline, and has been engaged for six years to Paul, a bakery supervisor. Hannah, cool, calm and organised, is a primary school teacher. Sarah pictured takes Jorgie to a baby group with other new mums so she sextuplets a busy social life already!
That could change. Janet presides serenely over the hubbub of chatter. She had so many pretty clothes, so I bought her a savings bond — and a cot. All the girls will get a cot.
Or sky-diving? This time next year there could be another batch of sextuplets on the way; another frenetic round first babysitting and nappy-changing. And who knows?
