PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - The baby boom at the Phoenix Fire Department is bigger than first thought.

After doing a photo shoot late last year to celebrate babies born for Phoenix firefighters in 2018 with eight babies, the department said it missed a few or a lot.

So on Sunday, they redid the photo shoot with 42 babies, including two sets of twins.

The babies were put in turnout coats and spelled PFD.

The department said they used ladder 20 to get high enough to take pictures of all the babies.

Firefighters say getting all the babies to sit still was challenging and hilarious but well worth it.

All of the babies have either a mom, a dad or both parents in the Phoenix Fire Department.

The department said it is thinking about making the baby photo shoot an annual event.
