The Elk Valley’s first new resident of 2012 arrived New Years Day at the Elk Valley hospital.

Elliott Kurlen Adams was born at 7:40 a.m. He is the third child for parents Cristy Gavan Adams and Ian Adams, from Hosmer.

He weighed in at a healthy 8lbs 2oz and stretched to 21 1/2 inches long.

His expected due date was December 30, but two weeks earlier Cristy had experienced false labour and doctors expected that he would arrive much sooner.

Cristy said, “We attended a New Year’s dinner party at our brother and sister-in-law’s home and by 11 p.m. we were more than ready to get home for a good night’s rest.

“We made it home in time to watch the apple fall and share a kiss for a Happy New Year and headed straight to bed. Thankfully we did so because; after a long and anxious two weeks Elliott decided at 4:30 a.m. New Year’s morning to begin his descent.

“To our delight he held out to celebrate the New Year of 2012 with a bang! Baby and I were healthy and happy and were home by 3 p.m. that afternoon. We arrived home to the excited and welcoming arms of Elliott’s big sister, Brittany, 14 and big brother, Avery, 16 months. Both siblings have been extremely loving and helpful with our new addition.

“We were also blessed to have Elliott’s grandparents, Dennis and Viola Adams here visiting from Sudbury, Ontario to meet their new grandchild.”

Elliott’s unusual middle name, Kurlen, came about by combining his uncles’ names, Kurt(Adams) and Lennox(Gavan). Elliott would have also shared his other two uncles’ names, Troy(Gavan) and Nick(Adams) but the parents decided it wouldn’t be right to call him ‘Trick.’

“We are so blessed and could not ask for a better way to begin 2012!” said Cristy.
