Family Celebrates New Year's Baby


Menomonie (WQOW) A Dunn County family has something new to celebrate this year.

The Miller family of Knapp had the first baby of the New Year in the Chippewa Valley. Gracie Kathleen Miller was born to Jolene and Curtis Miller.  She was delivered at 6:45 a.m. at Red Cedar Medical Center in Menomonie.

Gracie, who was due on January 3, weighs 6 pounds 10 ounces and measured 20 inches long.

Gracie's mother and father say they were winners any way you looked at it.

"We figured we couldn't lose last night. We knew (the baby) was coming between that time. Either we were getting a tax break or she was the New Year's baby," says Jolene.
