NOAH Carr was so de­ter­mined to be the first baby born in Cam­paspe this year he ar­rived three weeks ahead of sched­ule. At 10.31am on Jan­uary 1. And while he was a first for 2019 there is no ques­tion he is the last for his mother, Ebony Crump, and fa­ther David Carr. She said four sons were enough, and oc­ca­sion­ally more than enough she laughed. His brothers are Cooper, 9, Levi, 8 and Do­minic, 1. “I came into the hospi­tal on Mon­day night cer­tain I was in labour, but the med­i­cal staff weren’t so sure,” Ebony said. “At one stage on Tues­day morn­ing they were go­ing to send me home but when a doc­tor checked, I was al­most fully di­lated so he broke my wa­ters and Noah was born 20 min­utes later,” she said. The fam­ily has only re­cently moved to Tor­rum­barry from Bendigo be­cause of David’s work with By­fords so it was des­tiny that made Noah the re­gion’s first baby of 2019. Noah weighed 3315 grams and was 50cm long at birth. His grand­par­ents are Su­san and Bill Aylett and Dar­rell and Robyn Crump.
