On the coldest day in January, a precious new baby girl was welcomed into the world at Prairie du Chien Memorial Hospital, and her name is Jaelynn.
Jaelynn Autumn Faulkner was born through an emergency C-section on Monday Jan. 6, 2014, at 9:58 a.m.
Mom Angela Benish and dad Josey Faulkner were happy to hold their new daughter who was 7 pounds, 5 ounces and 19.8 inches long.
The family’s doctor who oversaw the process was Dr. Robert Key.
Being Angela’s third child, Jaelynn will join two siblings, Brittany, 15, and Tyler, 13, at home in Monona, Iowa.
With a lot of family birthdays in December, Jaelynn almost ending up sharing her birthday with someone, including her sister Brittany.
“She just had to have her own day,” Angela commented, who wished Jaelynn could have arrived on a somewhat warmer day. “I was even hoping she’d come before the end of the year.”
