Meet Jackson, Cowichan's first baby of 2012
Duncan’s Jason Jordan is loving the quiet, special moments with his newborn son.
Proud papa Jordan, and mom Cary Ann Jackson, are the parents of the Cowichan Valley’s first baby born in 2012.
Jackson Anthony Ryan Jordan arrived at 9:28 p.m. on New Year’s Day.
The five-pound, eight-ounce bundle’s been a blessing, father Jordan said.
“He’s been absolutely great,” Jordan said from the Cowichan District Hospital on Tuesday morning, noting girlfriend Jackson is still in resting mode as she underwent an unexpected cesarean to give birth to the little guy.
“He sleeps pretty good right now, and he twitches lots and yes, he dreams pretty good.”
Jordan’s tickled about having a second son as is his seven-year-old son Jared Jordon to have a partner in crime.
The first baby of 2012 in the capital region, William Robert Haines, meanwhile, was born at 3:08 a.m. Sunday at Victoria General Hospital.
The first baby in the province, Isabella Marie Payne, arrived just three minutes into 2012 at B.C. Women’s Hospital.
