Third Perkins sextuplet goes home

Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - It is going to be a great Father's Day for David Perkins, the recent father of sextuplets.

A spokesperson from Texas Children's Pavilion for Women said baby Andrew has now joined his brother and sister at home.

Andrew is the third of the Perkins pack to leave the hospital while Allison, Levi and Leah still remain in the neonatal intensive care unit at the hospital. The three are making strides each day and are on schedule to come home at or near their original due date of July 1.

The babies continue to work on learning to take a bottle and maintaining their breathing in an open-air crib.

The Perkins want to reiterate their thanks to the media for giving them their privacy in these first weeks at home and are still considering releasing pictures when the final baby is released from the hospital.
