Levi and Stephanie Webster welcome their third son, Jeremiah, on Jan. 2.

    More often than not, the first baby born at RiverView each year arrives in the second week of the month, but not little Jeremiah John Webster. Jeremiah beat his Jan. 5 due date and was born Jan. 2 at 7:12 a.m., making him the first baby born at RiverView in 2019.


    Jeremiah is the third son born to Levi and Stephanie Webster of Crookston. He is the little brother to Jackson, 3, and James, 19 months, both also born at RiverView. Jeremiah’s grandparents are John and Nancy Webster of Kennedy, Minn., and David and Linnea Genereux of Crookston.


    Weighing 8 pounds 5.8 ounces and measuring 20 ½ inches, Jeremiah was delivered by Drs. Erik Kanten and Kari Wessman.


    In partnership with the Crookston Daily Times, as the first baby of 2019, Jeremiah will receive a care package from area merchants.
