Munson Medical Center celebrated the new year with several January 1st babies on Wednesday, but the very first one came into the world just after 4:00 a.m..
While other people were celebrating at parties, new mom, Kristina Vanvleet, was in labor and awaiting the arrival of her son, Beau Robert Fasel.
Father, Bryan Fasel, and Kristina welcomed their baby boy into the world at 4:12 a.m.. Beau weighed 8 pounds 3 ounces, and was measured at 21 and a half inches long.
Kristina and Bryan were originally expecting little Beau on Christmas Day, but say he decided to hang on for a little bit longer before making his grand appearance on New Year's Day.
"I'm happy that he's finally here," said Kristina. "Happy that he's healthy and all that. Feeling a lot better than I thought I was going to be not even 12 hours afterwards."
Kristina and Bryan say they are looking forward to many exciting birthdays with Beau while everyone else is also celebrating.
