The first baby born in Lacombe this year waited a while to make her entrance.

The baby girl, weighing 8 lbs. 2 oz., was born on Jan. 5th, making her appearance at 9:05 a.m.

Parents Lisa and Jesse Bouwknecht said their daughter Lacey Elise Bouwknecht was due on Dec. 28th but didn’t arrive as expected.

Lacey was the first baby born in 2016 at the Lacombe Hospital and Care Centre. The couple, along with their daughter Jaida, 2, moved to the rural Lacombe area from Abbotsford eight months ago.
