NAGS HEAD, N.C. — Outfitted in a tuxedo T-shirt, Grey born on January 1, 2011 at 2:48 am, weighed 8 pounds 9 ounces and was 20 inches long. As the old year passed and the New Year began, the hospital was a flutter with several deliveries. “I was kind of hoping we would have the New Year’s baby,” said Nicole who works as a nurse in the ER at Albemarle Hospital. Brother and sister T.J and Gwen were ready to welcome Grey home.
