GREENCASTLE -- He was the first baby born in Putnam County in 2010 and will be the last baby in the Cross family.
Dr. Charlie Ho delivered Garett Cross at 8:28 a.m. Monday by cesarean section at Putnam County Hospital. He arrived weighing in at 6 pounds and 12 ounces and was 19 1/2 inches long.
Garett was born to Rachael and Ernest Cross of Spencer and is the youngest of five -- Bailey, 13, Kellee, 12, Ashlee, 11 and Wyatt, 3.
Ho also delivered Wyatt, noted Rachael.
"We really like him," she added with a smile and her husband agreed.
"We heard a lot of good things about (Ho)," Ernest said.
For having the first baby in 2010, the Crosses received a baby blanket made by Carolyn Perry, who makes something for every New Year's baby at PCH.
Rachael said she was unsure when she would be taking Garett home. It is expected to be within the next few days.
