Lake Chelan Hospital’s First Baby of the Year!
January 6, 2020
We’ve been waiting all year for the New Year’s baby and he has arrived. Gael Robles Sierra was born Saturday January 4th, 2020 at Lake Chelan Community Hospital. It is an exciting start to the New Year for the proud first-time parents. Gael was born at 13:15 p.m. Saturday. He was 20.47 inches and weighed 8 pounds 7 ounces.
Silvestre Robles Ramirez and Ximena Sierra Oliveros have been living in the Lake Chelan Valley for about five years. When asked if they were nervous, Ximena said “Yes, we are nervous because we are new parents, but are happy to have friends and family to help us along the way.”
Dad, Silvestre Robles said the baby was due Monday, but because Ximena was having strong and painful contractions Friday evening, they decided to go to the hospital. “Watching the birth of my son is a feeling I can’t explain,” said Silvestre. The new parents were filled with joy and excitement to be told that Gael was the first baby of the year at Lake Chelan Community Hospital and received the generous New Year’s Baby basket donated by Lake Chelan
