Northern BC's first baby of 2019 was born in Smithers -- to parents from Stewart.

He weighed  six pounds, 14 ounces. 

However, he wasn't the first baby born in the province this year -- that honour falls to a little boy born at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster at 12:01 yesterday morning.    

Terrace's New Year's baby is an eight-pound-12-ounce girl, born to Claire and Shane Wiebe at 2:33 yesterday afternoon.

She joins big sister Ava in their growing family.
