First Baby of the New Year

Congratulations to Dr. Sharon E. McIntyre and the entire OB team for safely bringing Zoey Rae Lindeman into the world. Zoey was Humboldt County's first baby of the New Year. She arrived at 10:54 a.m. Wednesday, January 2, to happy parents Melissa Heikkila and Larry Lindeman. Zoey weighed 5 pounds, 6 ounces and was 18 inches long, and she is beautiful. Zoey's family celebrated her timely arrival with a host of donated gifts including: a blanket from Second Street Seasonals; a teddy bear sweatshirt from Shoreline; a facial gift certificate from Serenity Spa; a $50 gift certificate from The Winnemucca Inn; a gift certificate for a hair cut from Attitudes Hair Salon; hair clips, a hair feather and baby necklace from Simply Trendy; a George Strait CD, stuffed pony, bandana and disposable camera from Boot Barn; diapers and a diaper bag from the HGH OB Department; and a check for $100 from the Humboldt Hospital Auxiliary. Special thanks to Kat Esquivel, R.N. for arranging for all of the lovely gifts.
