The birth of all their children was a special occasion for Brian and Kimberly Baker of Lawrenceville. But the arrival of their third child, a little girl named Lucy, was an extra special event for the place where she was born.
At 10:02 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 9, Lucy became the 100,000th baby to be born at in Lawrenceville. Big sister Sara, 4, and older brother John, 2, are also among all those children born at GMC since the Women’s Pavilion first opened its doors on the GMC Lawrencevile campus in April 1991. GMC also has a hospital campus in Duluth.
“After researching hospitals prior to the birth of our first child, we landed at GMC,” said proud dad Brian. “While Lucy was the 100,000th baby delivered here, the exceptional treatment we received previously was no different.”
Lucy was born by C-section. She came into the world weighing 7lbs. and 9oz. and 20 inches long.
Sara and John are already enjoying their little sister and helping out stay-at home-dad Brian. Kimberly will return to work as a civil engineer after she completes her maternity leave.
“Oh, they are in love,” said mom Kimberly about how her two older kids feel about the new baby. “They love her a lot. John likes to give her her paci, and Sara likes to hold her.”
