The L'Esperances, who brought three other children to their marriage, say some things haven't changed. Veronica, the flirtiest baby, now has guys lined up at the door. Alexandria, a "long, lean screaming machine" as an infant, says her mom, is now "taller—and screams louder." As for the lone boy, Raymond? He's still the lucky one: "The girls fight with each other," says Michele, "but they leave him alone."
