Gallery+Story: Hospitals celebrate first babies of 2021

The new year featured new arrivals for a couple of Borderland families, as the Hospitals of Providence (THOP) and Las Palmas Del Sol (LPDS) celebrated the first babies of the new year.

At THOP’s Memorial Campus, Isabelle January Morales made her way into the world, arriving at exactly the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Day.

THOP officials say that Isabelle, weighing in at 6lbs. 12oz. and 19in. long, is sweet and snugly and already sharing her precious little smile.

THOP officials share that parents Edgar and Belinda Morales are “incredibly happy to have their newest addition to their family and excited to get her home to her two other sisters who are anxiously awaiting to meet their new sibling and will be excited to hear they have a new little sister.”

Over at LPDS’s Del Sol Medical Center the first baby of the new year landed exactly on minute later,  at 12:01 a.m., as 10 lbs 11 ounce Catalina joined the celebration.
