New Year arrival
Molliers family celebrates birth of healthy new daughter
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.
