Alden Roy Shields, First Baby of 2012

Posted in

For the first time in seven years the New Years baby in Sheridan County was actually born on New Years day. At 7:20 am on Sunday, parents Scot and Jennifer Shields welcomed Alden Roy Shields into their family.

Hospital Community Relations Director Cecile Pattison said that this is the first time a baby has been born on New Years day since 2005. A surprising statistic, since they average about 400 deliveries per year at Sheridan Memorial, Pattison said.

Alden weighed 8 lbs 15 ounces and was 21 ½ inches long. They went home from the hospital on Monday. The family was given a case of diapers by Sheridan Memorial Hospital.
