The Southern Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - BY COLIN FAR­RELL

The first baby to be born at the Burin Penin­sula Health Care Cen­tre for the New Year has made her ar­rival.

Kins­ley Michelle Picco was born on the morn­ing of Jan. 5, shortly af­ter 8 A.M. to parents Charles and Denise.

“I was hop­ing for a 2017 baby so it’s kind of ex­cit­ing,” said mother Denise.

The mother of two said Kins­ley weighed 6 lbs 12oz when she was born.

The cou­ple’s news edi­tion is their sec­ond child — they have an older daugh­ter named Katie.

When asked what she tought of her new lit­tle sis­ter, the eight-year-old didn’t waste any words.

“She’s pretty,” said the ex­cited big sis­ter.

Charles said for him, when Kins­ley was born wasn’t an is­sue, “… as long as she was healthy.”

Be­fore re­turn­ing home, the fam­ily was pre­sented with a new car seat from the New­found­land and Labrador Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion. The or­ga­ni­za­tion does the same for all the first ba­bies of the year born at the 10 fa­cil­i­ties in the prov­ince that per­form de­liv­er­ies, as a means to en­cour­age parents to use car seats from the time the child leaves the hos­pi­tal. Mom, Dad and big sis­ter Katie wel­comed Kins­ley Michelle Picco into the world on Jan. 5. The lit­tle girl was the first baby of 2017 at the health care provider in Burin.
