Contreras is Newnan’s first baby of the year
by Bradley Hartsell
Newnan’s first baby of the year, Connor Phillip Contreras, was born Jan. 1 at 2:07 p.m.
Little Connor weighed 8 pounds and 2 ounces and measured 21 inches long. Mom and dad, Krista and Christopher Contreras, are thrilled about their first child, as well as his special arrival on New Year's Day, and they are happy to report that everyone is doing great.
“We’re just thrilled. We live in Newnan and it was so nice to be close to home,” said the proud father of the couple’s firstborn child. “Connor is just fantastic. The staff was just amazing, and everything went off without a hitch.”
Was there any thought Connor Phillip would be the first Newnan baby of 2014?
“It never crossed our mind, because it wasn’t until 2 p.m. [that Connor was born],” Contreras said. “It was very surprising to us when they came and told us he was the New Year’s baby.”
Piedmont Newnan presented baby Connor and the Contreras family a gift basket filled with newborn essentials, which included a baby monitoring system donated by the Newnan Babies R Us and a certificate for a $500 savings account presented on behalf of Delta Community Credit Union.
“We were overwhelmed, it was awesome.” He joked of the savings account, “It makes up for missing out on the tax break the day before.
“We’re just so thankful that people would do something like that. Connor is very loved and very blessed.”
