New Year’s baby is here!

Brennan William Weidenman was born Jan. 7 at 6:21 am at the Queen Charlotte hospital, after only two hours of labour. He came into the world at 8 lbs. 4 oz. and 21 inches long. Brennen is a little brother for Nathanial, and another grandson for Roy and Susan Wiedenman, Jim and Sandy Boguski and Clayton and Sandy Merritt. His parents, Jill and Ryan, said, “we are very much in love and everyone is settling in nicely.” They would also like to pass on a “huge thanks to Celina Laursen, the amazing staff at QCIGH, and our friends who were there to lend a helping hand. We are so grateful for everything you’ve all done.” Noah Barton, from Sandspit, was born Jan. 1 in Prince Rupert to Kate and Blake Barton. Congratulations to both families, we at the Observer wish you all the best!
