New bundles of joy

(Continued)



Joshua and Stephanie have been married two years, and he said he was glad to ring in the new year with the start of a new family.

"I mean, we were married, but it's not really complete until you bring in that child," he said. "... It's a very special time for us."

The second baby born in 2009 was Dillon Wayne Smith, born at 12:24 a.m. at Norman Regional Hospital. He weighed 6 pounds 3 ounces and was 18 3/4 inches long.

He is the son of Sandra Sharp and Michael Wayne Smith of Blanchard.

Although Dillon was due Jan. 1, Sharp said she didn't expect him to be the first baby born at NRH in 2009.

"I actually thought he was gonna be here a lot sooner than he was," she said. Sharp, who has a 2-year-old as well, was on her feet most of her pregnancy working at the Goldsby Gaming Center. Sharp started having contractions Dec. 30 and checked into the hospital the afternoon of Dec. 31.

Dillon's paternal grandmother, Kim Kates of Norman, was happy to have another grandchild.

"I think he's neat," she said as she held him at the hospital. "Can't get no better New Year's present than this, can you?"

Sharp said she hopes 2009 will be "better than last year."

"Maybe he'll bring us some good luck this year," Kates said.

In Moore, the Goeders family also saw hope for the new year in their new baby. The year has already started out on a great foot.

"I think it's pretty good, like it's gonna be a good year," said Stephanie Goeders. Her husband agreed that 2009 had a lot of promise.

"It's a new beginning," he said. "I mean, it's a chance for us to move on and grow as a family. It's maybe the greatest feeling I've ever felt in my life."
