First 2007 Baby Born In Grand Junction Is A Boy

A Grand Junction couple wasn't counting down to midnight Sunday night, but to the birth of their third baby boy.

Proud parents Deborah and Jim McNeill gave birth to the first baby born in the Grand Valley in 2007, just after midnight. After 12 hours of labor, and an epidural, Jadon Dennis was born at 19 inches and six pounds and ten ounces. Jadon's original due date was January 3rd.

Both the Mom and baby are doing well, and will be released from St. Mary's Hospital Tuesday morning.
