New Year’s baby born in Queen Charlotte

  • Jan. 18, 2008 1:00 p.m.

A Queen Charlotte family’s newest addition has taken the official New Year’s baby title. Cayanne Rose Yalte Evans was born at the Queen Charlotte Islands General Hospital on Jan. 14 at 9:26 pm. She was 7 pounds, 12 ounces and 20 inches long. Her mom, Maryanna Yalte, started labour at 6 am that morning and was assisted by nurses Marla Kaminski and Gabriela Kunz and Dr. Carolyn Schooner. Proud new dad Ken Evans told the Observer that Cayanne’s brother Bracken, who just turned three years old on Dec. 14, was born in the same room with the same nurses, but a different doctor. Bracken and Cayanne even shared the same due date, says Mr. Evans, but Bracken came a little early. Ms Yalte was also born in the same hospital. Mr. Evans said they planned to have the baby here and offered thanks to the hospital staff. “The staff was great,” he said.
