First baby of 2014 arrives|
|Jaylen Elaina Kolpack is already gaining a reputation for impatience.|
Jaylen waited just 20 hours and 37 minutes into 2014 to make her appearance at Langlade Hospital, the first baby of the new year and the winner of a boxload of gift certificates and prizes from the Antigo Daily Journal and its advertisers.
The daughter of Derek and Jennifer Kolpack of rural Antigo, Jaylen arrived early—she wasn’t due until Jan.19—and petite, weighing six pounds, eight ounces and measuring 19 inches.
Attending physician was Dr. Dennis McFadden, who hospital staffers said has had the honor of delivering the first baby for the past three years.
The Kolpacks, who have been married 3 1/2 years, said they read about the contest in the Antigo Daily Journal, but with Jaylen not due for weeks, they never expected to win.
They spent a quiet New Year’s Eve at home with friends, but then things changed quickly.
“She wanted to be the first one I guess,” her dad said. “We weren’t expecting her so soon.”
Derek is a dairy regional account manager for Genex Cooperative. Jennifer is a dental hygienist for Dr. Stan Brown. Jaylen is their first child.
As the contest winner, the Kolpacks will receive a long list of prizes from contest sponsors.
“We really would like to thank everyone who participates,” Jennifer said. “This will all come in very handy with a new baby in the house.”
