When a happy couple welcomes a healthy, firstborn child into the world, the moment is as endearing and glorious as any miracle imaginable. Those incomparable emotions were evident on the beaming faces of the young Prairie du Chien couple who delivered the New Year’s baby at Crossing Rivers Health on Tuesday, Jan. 5.
With her warm, smooth complexion and full head of dark hair, Kinsley Olivia was born to Josh and Danielle Snyder at 1:45 a.m. under the watchful eye of Dr. Robert Key, of Mayo Clinic, Prairie du Chien. She weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces, and measured 19 inches long. They were the first of numerous families who filled Crossing Rivers’ birthing suite last week.
Kinsley was the very first grandbaby on Danielle’s side of the family and the first granddaughter for Josh’s family. Grandparents include Shelley Buss, of Cedarville, Ill., Kevin and Donna Buss, of Davis, Ill., and Scott and Crystal Snyder, of Manistique, Mich.
