WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. Florida's first set of surviving sextuplets are turning 2.

Brady, Eli, Ryan, Jackson, Charlie and Mackenzie Byler celebrated their birthday at a party with about 40 friends and family members on Sunday.

Ben and Karoline Byler's sextuplets are starting to play with more toys and are in the so-called "terrible twos" stage. They are also learning how to self-feed, walk and climb.

The children, who were born at a St. Petersburg hospital, are 14th set of surviving sextuplets in the country.

Ben and Karoline Byler also have an older daughter, Zoe, who is in first grade at a Wesley Chapel elementary school this year.
