Carole Mikita ReportingBorn nine weeks early, the Clark quadruplets are now nine weeks old and three of them are pretty lively, the fourth is a fighter.

Pamela and Steve Clark have their hands full, literally -- four newborns in two hospitals. Each one needs a bottle eight times a day, a diaper changed more than that, or simply wants to be held all the time.

Pamela Clark, Mother of Quadruplets: "We get a lot of comfort in knowing that the three are here and doing very well...."

Abigail and Dillon are in open cribs, eating on their own. Carter had heart surgery and is still in a covered bed. Stephan was moved to Primary Children's three weeks ago. Two days after birth, he suffered a massive pulmonary hemorrhage. Christmas Day he had a brain hemorrhage, then problems with his bowels.

Pamela Clark: "We feel very encouraged by what we're seeing with Stephan right now. He had another surgery on Friday, his fourth, and he's just starting to eat today at the first time."

We introduced you to Pamela Clark when she was six months into her pregnancy. She was in the hospital so that the babies wouldn't be born too early. But they only waited three more weeks. It was an emergency delivery - four babies arrived in 25 minutes.

Steve Clark, Father of Quadruplets: "Doctor called and told me to valet park, I needed to get up here now..."

Steve only made it in time for the last baby, Dillon's arrival. That was enough he said.

Steve: "It's like Jell-o, there's always room for more..."

For now, Stephan will remain in newborn ICU at Primary Children's for four to six weeks. Carter will stay at LDS for a few more weeks, but their brother, Dillon and sister, Abigail could be ready to go home in about ten days.

The Clarks live on the east rim of Zion National Park. They say their home and everyone in their small town is ready to welcome four babies.
