Souris couple welcome baby boy at QEH New Year's morning
A Souris couple are the proud parents of the first baby born on P.E.I. in 2014.
Baby Dmitry was born at 11:15 a.m. New Year's Day at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown for parents Kathryn Negonova and Max Negonov.
He weighed seven pounds, 13 ounces (3.54 kilograms). He is the couple’s third child, joining sisters Bella, age 3 and a half, and Lita, 2.
In a conversation with The Guardian Wednesday, Kathryn said her water broke while they were all at home in Souris on New Year’s Eve so they traveled to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown.
Overnight the labour seemed to stop so after some medical intervention Dmitry was born in the morning of New Year's Day.
Kathryn has lived all her life on P.E.I. and husband Max is Russian by birth.
“We were a little excited that he might be the first. It’s just a nice way to bring in the new year,” said Kathryn.
“He’s doing great,” she said. “He’s sleeping good and he’s beautiful. He’s awesome.”
