Two first-time parents welcomed their son and Cayuga County’s first baby of the new year Monday evening at Auburn Community Hospital.
Cayden Lee, weighing 9 pounds, .5 ounces and measuring 22 inches long, was born at 6:53 p.m. on New Year’s Day to mother Shunlan Yuan and father Changkook Lee of Auburn.
Lee said he and his wife were not expecting to have a New Year’s baby because Cayden’s due date was supposed to be Dec. 21. Although Cayden was nearly two weeks late, Lee said the labor and delivery went fine.
“(We’re) really happy,” Lee said with a big smile when asked how he felt having the first baby of the new year.
