Chamber welcomes the first baby of the year

Saturday, January 5, 2013
The first baby of 2013 was born on Jan. 3 at 4:26 p.m. Swayzi Mahalia Hanson, born to Zach Hanson and Abbey Bryan, weighed seven pounds, five ounces and measured 21 inches at birth. Swayzi was also welcomed by older brother Wylie, three years old, who is "very excited" and "wants to help change diapers and feed her." Hanson and Bryan didn't anticipate Swayzi becoming the first baby born in the year. She wasn't due until Jan. 7. Bryan, born on Jan. 5, was the third child on the year she was born. The Spencer Chamber of Commerce presented Hanson and Bryan with a gift basket filled with donations from area businesses. (Photo by Kate Padilla)
