POCATELLO — Just a few hours into the new year, a couple from Pocatello welcomed their first child into the world. Baby Zoe Baker is the first baby born in the new year at Portneuf Medical Center; she was born at 1:58 a.m.
New mom, Kelli Baker, and new dad, Martin Baker, came to Portneuf on New Year’s Eve around 6 p.m. While the due date was still a few days away, mom and dad chuckled about maybe having the New Year’s baby. Zoe weighted seven pounds four ounces at birth and was 19 1/4 inches.
The parents are overjoyed by the safe arrival of their beautiful daughter.
Being the first baby born in the new year, Zoe and her family received a red wagon full of diapers, wipes, a baby rocker, baby monitor, baby gift set, a bath and a cuddly stuffed animal. The wagon of gifts was generously donated by the Portneuf Auxiliary.
