Cupid made several special deliveries to the Beaufort Memorial Collins Birthing Center on February 14.

The first little Valentine to arrive was Karee Smalls, who was born at 9:37 a.m. to Jasmine Scantling and Tywonne Smalls of Beaufort – and who looks pretty content resting on a quilt of pink hearts and flowers donated by the Sea Island Quilters.

By the end of the day, Karee (far left) had lots of company in the nursery with three additional little sweethearts arriving that afternoon: Lincoln Williams at 3:07 p.m. (parents Emily and Johnathan Williams of Beaufort); Luisa Valeria Gomez Cobos at 3:40 p.m. (parents Carla Dominguez Cobos and Daniel Gomez Castillo of Ridgeland); and Everly Krushel at 2:50 p.m. (parents Skye Hayes and Keith Krushel of Bluffton).
