Jeshua Raymond Moreno was delivered by C-section at Bartlett Regional Hospital. He’s the third child of Elizabeth and John Moreno.
“He was 9 pounds, one ounce and a half, 21 and ¾ inches, and he’s a beautiful baby boy,” said the father.
John Moreno says his wife was supposed to go in for the C-section on December 31st, but it was rescheduled for today because of a requirement that the surgery take place after at least 39 weeks of pregnancy.
He says everybody is doing great, but they’re not really sure how to feel about having the first baby born in Juneau this year.
“I think we’re really concentrating on having a new baby instead of the time of the year,” Moreno said. “But it’s good to be a father again.”
Moreno says older brother, John, and older sister, Ina Mae, both had an opportunity to hold Jeshua shortly after he was born, and they both love their new baby brother.
