2018 Baby New Year is New Mom's Little Miracle

New  Years  Baby 2018 content images

January 2, 2018 - Rebecca Green of Lindsay wasn’t expecting her first baby until January 11th. Welcoming him at 6:14pm on New Year’s Day was a surprise. Rebecca’s baby boy has brought one happy surprise after another.   

His name is Emrys, which is derived from Celtic/Welsh origins and means “immortal”.

“I know he’s not immortal, but I didn’t think I could have children, so it seems appropriate,” Rebecca said. Rebecca has a genetic disorder that affects her connective tissues.

Traditionally, the first baby of the new year is celebrated as a sign of rebirth. His early and safe arrival is certainly a welcome sign for Rebecca. “I always wanted to be a mom.”

Emrys’ middle name is Gustav, which is a variation of Rebecca’s late father’s name.

Emrys Gustav Green weighed 6 pounds 2 ounces.
