Meet Moab’s first baby of 2017...
Adrian Angel is the first Moab newborn to arrive in 2017, clocking in at 3:55 p.m. on Jan. 4. Born to Jamie Stoughton and Efren Santana, Adrian measured 19.25 inches and weighed 6 pounds 12 ounces at birth. Both Stoughton and Santana say it feels “amazing” to meet their son. “He’s my first boy, so it’s just amazing,” she said. Stoughton said her daughters, Jocelyn, 2, and Selena, 9, have been “very loving” to their new baby brother. Describing the feeling of having the first baby of the year, Stoughton and Santana had two huge smiles and just one word: “exciting.” Stoughton and Santana will receive gifts from more than 20 sponsors who participated in The Times-Independent’s New Years Baby contest.
