Casey first baby of year, decade
January 30, 2020
Eliot Robert Casey arrived at 1:16 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, to win first baby honors and prizes at Whitman Hospital. He is the seventh child born to Patricia and Robert Casey of Rosalia.
In addition to being the first baby of 2020, Elliot is the first baby for the new decade.
Birth weight was six pounds, eight ounces.
The baby joins Arianna 15, Bryce 14, Shane 11, Finn 5, Violet 3 and Bailey 2.
His mom said she was surprised the first baby contest remained open 25 days into the New Year. Two years ago, Bailey was born Jan. 7 at the hospital, but the contest was already over by that time.
Both parents resided here during the years they attended Washington State University, and they later lived in Bremerton. They decided to move back to Colfax, but landed in Rosalia when they located a house that fit their needs.
