Batavia couple welcomes Delnor's first baby of new year

GENEVA – A Batavia couple earned the unexpected distinction Friday of becoming parents to the first baby born at Delnor Hospital in 2016.

“He was two weeks late,” Jon Pfautz said, noting his wife’s due date was Dec. 18. “We did not think he was going to be close to the new year. It’s actually my birthday today.”

Pfautz, 33, said he is happy to share his birthday with his son, adding it’s something they can bond over and celebrate together.

He and his wife, Marisa, welcomed the boy at 11:27 a.m. The infant weighed in at 10 pounds and measured 22 inches long.

“He’s got a full head of hair and big cheeks, a nice disposition,” Pfautz said. “We’re very lucky.”

The baby had not been named as of Friday afternoon, Pfautz said.

“We’ve got a list,” he said. “We really wanted to take a look at him, get to know him, see if a name jumps out.”

He and his wife, who was in good spirits following the birth, decided not to learn their baby’s gender in advance, he said.

“We figured this is our last, so we thought it would be fun to have a surprise,” Pfautz said, noting their new son has two brothers and a sister.
