There’s a new girl in town

GLASGOW — Ciara Coffey, 19, of Cave City, spent her New Year’s morning counting the fingers and toes of her newborn daughter, Addison Jane Coffey.

Coffey had been in labor for more than four hours when she finally came face-to-face with her baby girl. Addison, who weighed 6 pounds, 3 ounces, was the first baby born of the new year at T.J. Samson Community Hospital. All Coffey could think about was how wonderful it was to hold her daughter for the first time.

“I couldn’t wait to see what she looked like,” Coffey said. “It was the most painful experience of my life, but it was worth it.”

She could hardly believe Addison was born with a full head of dark hair.

In fact, the dark hair was the first thing Coffey’s cousin, Laura Bennett, saw of Addison.

“I saw her come out. I said ‘Ciara I can see her hair,’” Bennett said. “I was so excited.”

Bennett didn’t want to miss anything and stayed with Coffey during the entire process. Bennett said she and Coffey were raised together and it was important to her to be there for Coffey.

Every little thing Addison did was magical to Coffey who watched her subtle facial changes and movements. She said the newborn recognized her voice from frequently talking to Addison in the womb.

“She looks at me like she knows what I’m saying when I talk to her,” she said. “She looks just like me when I was a baby, same nose and everything.”
