Hudson Lee Cripe is Goshen’s first baby of 2013

GOSHEN — The first babies of the new year were welcomed Tuesday at IU Health Goshen Hospital and New Eden Care Center.


Hudson Lee Cripe was the first baby to be born at IU Health Goshen Hospital in 2013.

He is the son of Andrea and Todd Cripe of Goshen. Hudson arrived at 3:41 a.m. Tuesday and weighed 6 pounds, 11 ounces.

“We were actually expecting two weeks later, so he was a little early. But it was a nice surprise,” Andrea said of the New Year’s birth. “I think it will be a nice memory for him to have. It’s exciting to have a baby on a holiday and a special day, so it’s fun. It’ll be nice to have New Year’s and the birthday all at the same time.”

This is the second child for the couple, who also have an excited three-year-old daughter waiting at home for her new little brother to arrive.

“Our first, Ava, she’s three,” Andrea said. “She just loves it. She’s very excited to have a little brother.”

The hospital staff presented Hudson and his parents with a gift package, including a little baby swing, diapers and some onesies in recognition of his being the first birth at the hospital in the new year.

New Eden Care Center

Isaiah Yutzy entered the world at 4:59 a.m. Tuesday, becoming the first baby to be born at New Eden Care Center in 2013. Weighing in at exactly 8 pounds, Isaiah is the son of parents Waneta and Ivan Yutzy of Shipshewana.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
