A new life leads off in a new year

Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital welcomed its first baby of the year, Brahm Fimbulvetr Farrell, born at 2:47 p.m. Monday, Jan. 2, 2023. His parents, Chelsee and Jered Farrell, of Albany, honored their family tradition of allowing the mother to choose the child’s first name while the father selected the middle name.
Brahm weighed 8 pounds, 2 ounces and was 21 inches long.
“His original due date was Dec. 27, so it was time to evict him,” Chelsee said.
Brahm will go home to two older brothers.
“We are very excited to welcome him to our family,” Jered said.
The couple resided for eight years in Lebanon, recently moving to Albany to raise their family.
To celebrate Lebanon’s first baby of 2023, Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital presented the Farrells with gift baskets that included baby towels, a blanket and a onesie for their newborn.
