Coming in to the world a few days later than expected, Heidi and Mark Plant were pleased to discover their first son was the first baby born at Deniliquin Hospital in 2014.
Despite being due on December 28, Christopher Alan Plant waited to make a grand entrance on January 2.
He was born at 11.45pm, weighing 4309g (9lb 8oz).
‘‘It was a big shock,’’ Heidi said.
‘‘We weren’t due in January so we weren’t expecting it.
‘‘When he was born on January 2, we wondered whether it was the first baby of the New Year,’’ she said.
The Plants received flowers, baby essentials, chocolates and wine from Gail McLean, who has been welcoming Deniliquin Hospital’s first baby with gifts for the past 25 years.
Baby Christopher is a brother for Emily, 1, and a grandson to Yvonne and Ian Lance and Debbi and Fred Littmann, all of Deniliquin.
