Part-time Grand Lake residents Jeff and Kim Buckley celebrated the birth of their first grandchild on Friday, who was born on Nov. 11, 2011.

Nurses said baby Pierce Robert Billecco, of Erie, drew his first breath precisely at 11:11 a.m. on that special date 11-11-11, according to the baby’s grandfather. The delivery was not a C-section; “This was natural all the way through,” Jeff said.

When the baby was all the way out of the birth canal, the time was 5 seconds into 11:12 a.m., Jeff said.

Although Pierce was born three weeks early, weighing 5 pounds, 6 ounces, his condition of health was good, the grandfather said.

The baby was released from the hospital on Monday.
