New decade begins with
trio of new babies
By Doug Lowe
In the first three days of the 2020, three pairs of Sanpete parents happily welcomed one of the first babies of the new year—and new decade—at the area’s three different hospitals.
First to arrive was Remlee Dawn Baldwin, who came on Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2020 at 10:42 p.m. at Sanpete Valley Hospital in Mt. Pleasant. Weighing 7 pounds 9 ounces and measuring 19.5 inches, Remlee is the daughter of Ephraim residents, Caitlin Leatham and Gavin Baldwin. According to her mother, the baby came earlier than expected. “My due date was supposed to be Jan. 7. But, instead, we ended up coming to hospital on New Year’s Day.” The delivering physician was Dr. Eric Jones.
The second New Year’s baby born to Sanpete parents arrived on Jan. 2, at 12:41 p.m., to Kristine and Michael Everitt of Mant
i. Recalling that day, Kristine’s said, “We had to drive in a blizzard to Central Valley Medical Center in Nephi because of my high risk pregnancy.” Delivered by Dr. Reed Skinner, the baby arrived weighing a healthy 6 pounds 8 ounces and measuring 19.25 inches. By mutual agreement from the baby’s eight siblings, she was given the name Violet.
Sanpete’s third baby of 2020 arrived on Jan. 3 at 9:26 p.m. at Gunnison Valley Hospital. Soon afterward her delivery, the proud parents of baby Renny, Joni and Casey Thomas, who are Ephraim residents, reported that the baby’s two older sisters, Constance and Rohwyn, “can hardly wait to start spoiling their new little sister.”
