For the first time in a number of years, Waldo County General Hospital’s 2012 New Year’s Baby made her appearance on New Year’s Day. Kaylee Ann Skaggs, who tipped the scales at 8 pounds, 3 ounces, was born at 11:21 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 1.

Kaylee was due Christmas Day and her mother was scheduled to check into the hospital Sunday evening to be induced but Kaylee had her own schedule. Her mother woke up at 5 a.m. on New Year’s Day when her labor started.

Kaylee, who received a basket of special gifts from the hospital, is the first child of Jonathan Skaggs and Amanda Nickerson of Belfast.
