Good Samaritian welcomed its first baby of 2021 on Monday, January 4th. 

Banx Kyle Long was the first baby to make his debut to the world at 9:39 a.m. on the Good Samaritan Obstetrics Unit. Banx weighed in at 8 pounds and 2 ounces, and was 22 inches long.

His parents are Shelby Criss of Lyons, Indiana, and Davon Long of Haubstadt, Indiana.

Banx will be welcomed home by siblings Brody, 4, and Colbie, 3. “It’s sad not getting to have my other babies here, but this time because of the visitor restrictions I feel more relaxed and get to spend more time with Banx,” Criss said. “We’ve had a great experience and everyone has been extremely nice.”

Not only was the couple congratulated with a gift basket from the hospital, but they also received a special gift from the family of the New Year’s baby of 2001 who wanted to pay it forward for what they received when their baby was born at Good Samaritan.

Autumn officially begins at 2:21 PM today! The fall-like air will be firmly in place thanks to the strong northwest wind flow. Winds will gust as high as 30 MPH. On and off rain chances will continue through the early-afternoon before clearing around 5PM. Highs will struggle to make it out of the low-60s.
