Addison Meints

It’s a girl!

The Meints family is welcoming baby Addison, the first Houston baby of 2012.

Tiny Addison Meints checked off a lot of firsts in her first five days.

Addison took her first breath at 4:11 a.m. on Jan. 7, making her the first girl in her family and the first Houston baby of 2012.

Just five days later, Addison gave her first media interview.

“Waah!” she told the Houston Today, after posing quietly for several family photos.

Addison’s mother Melanie said she had a good pregnancy, adding that she and her husband Chris were right to guess that Addison wasn’t going to wait for Jan. 19—the due date predicted by ultrasound.

Addison’s brothers Austin, 15, and Dylan, 3, are excited to have a sister, and Janis Garratt is celebrating her second granddaughter.

Asked what tips she would give to new parents, Melanie said first children are easy because you can sleep when the baby sleeps.

“It’s different when you have a three-year old running around,” she said.

Chris said that’s especially true when the three-year old happens to be Dylan.

“He’s a wiry little guy,” he said. “He likes to up and go all the time.”

“So by all means, invite somebody to stay a while,” said Janis, laughing. After visiting from Alberta for Christmas, Janis stayed on in Houston to see the baby and help her parents get a little shut-eye.
