CARMEL, N.Y. – A Mahopac family welcomed Putnam County's first baby born on New Year’s Day at Putnam Hospital Center, a baby girl, on New Year's Day.

Erin Cavanna entered into the world at 11:58 a.m. Friday She weighed precisely 6 pounds and was 19 inches long.

The newborn joins an older brother and sister.

“My first blessing of 2016 – the first of many,” grandmother, Anita Grant said.

The baby came one week prior to her due date and less than one hour from when mom Keisha Cavanna was admitted to Putnam Hospital Center for delivery.

“I was hoping for a tax write-off or a New Year’s baby,” Keisha Cavanna said. “Either way, I’m happy.”

Dad Nate Cavanna said he felt fantastic.

“There’s no way I’d rather start the New Year,” he said.
