The first newborn of the new year at Parkview Huntington Hospital, Kristine Bailey McMahon, was born Jan. 2, 2010, at 6:36 p.m. to Latosha-Renee Nicole McMahon and Joshua Charles Kelly, both of Roann.

McMahon named her daughter Kristine Bailey in memory of a late friend.

The baby, who was delivered by Dr. Eric Reichenback, weighed 6 pounds, 1 ounce and measured 18 inches at birth.

To honor the occasion, the family received a gift basket from Parkview Huntington Hospital that included baby needs and other gifts. A stuffed teddy bear was donated by the Parkview Huntington Hospital Guild/Gift Shop as well.

The arrival of the family's new addition will also be recognized in the Family Birthing Center at Parkview Huntington Hospital on its "A Star Is Born" Baby Wall of Fame.

The gift is compliments of the Parkview Huntington Hospital Foundation. A nameplate inscribed with the baby's name and birthday will be prominently displayed within a larger star display on the wall of The Family Birthing Center hallway.

The family will receive a certificate suitable for framing as well.
