The staff at Gothenburg Health happily introduces the first baby born at their facility in 2022. Hope Adams and Dirk Earll of Cozad welcomed the New Year’s Baby, a girl on Jan. 8.
Everly Violet Earll arrived at 2:14 a.m. weighing 9 pounds and measuring 20 inches in length. Everly is also being welcomed home by two brothers, Teagan and Kyler, and a sister, Hynlee.
Grandparents are Mike Earll of Gothenburg, Monica Earll of Cozad, and Jenny Hayes of Cozad.
New mom Hope said she thought she was going to be induced on Jan. 8, but apparently Everly had plans to enter the world on her own. “We’re pretty excited,” added dad, Dirk.
Everly shares her birthday with a cousin. The Earll’s first grandchild was also born on Jan. 8, and Everly is their first granddaughter - making her arrival special in several areas.
As the first baby born at Gothenburg Health Everly and her parents received some welcome gifts both from the hospital and from local businesses. Those include the Gothenburg Leader - gift basket filled with baby care items and their first Swede apparel; Country Partners - gift card; Fresh Seasons Market - gift card; and Flatwater Bank - youth savings account donation.
