BARRINGTON — It took more than 33 hours after the calendar turned to 2013, but Barrington’s Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital has delivered its first baby of the year.
Weighing in at seven pounds and six ounces, Bronx Brian Borscha was born at 9:32 a.m. Jan. 2 to parents Kelley and Sean Borscha. Bronx is the Cary couple’s first child.
“We were surprised because we got here New Year’s Eve,” the new mother said. “It’s been a whirlwind.”
After 39 hours in labor and at least another day in the hospital, the Borschas said they are excited to get home and settled.
More important than the special 2013 birthday, Kelley Borscha said she is grateful her son is healthy, because he was born three weeks early.
“We were going to go to an early dinner and a movie,” Kelley Borscha said. “What a change of plans!”
The Borschas knew ahead of time that they were having a son.
“We found out at our 20-week appointment that it was going to be a boy,” she said.
The parents already had their home ready for the baby, including a nursery. And the Borschas both have family in the area to help. Kelley said they plan on staying in Cary to raise their son, and possibly having more children.
Kelley Borscha also pointed out that she is not the only one in her family who has had a first-baby-of-the-year. Her cousin had a New Year’s baby in New Mexico a few years ago, she said.
Kelley added that her stay at Good Shepherd was pleasant for her and her new son.
“Everyone that has taken care of us here is very nice,” she said.
