Victor Harry and Jocelyn Isnardy of Williams Lake are settling in at home with their first-born son who happens to be the city’s New Year’s baby.

Their baby, who has yet to be named, was born on Jan. 5, 2014, at Cariboo Memorial Hospital, at 4:15 a.m. He weighed eight pounds and two ounces.

Mom and baby arrived home on Wednesday.

Both Harry and Isnardy were born and raised in the Cariboo Chilcotin. He's from Dog Creek and she is from the Toosey, Riske Creek area.

Their son will be welcomed by “lots of cousins” on both sides of the Fraser River, Isnardy smiled.

When asked if they had noticed anything about their little guy's character, Isnardy said he is a little toughie already.

“When he was getting weighed and lying on his tummy, he was already on his knees and holding up his neck," she said.

Smiling Harry said when they were at the hospital it was almost as if the baby had figured out the sound of the nurse's shoes when she would walk into the room.

"He would hear her coming, shut his eyes, and then wait and open one eye," he said.
