Their baby weighs 6 pounds and 8 ounces, and is 20.5 inches long.

In celebration of being the first baby born at Grove Creek, their team presented the Arrington family with a $200 gift card to Target and a Doona Car Seat & Stroller. In addition, diapers, wipes and baby swaddlers were also given to the family.
