It's a boy!
MEGAN HEDLEY OF Benson cuddles her son, Sawyer Jensen Porter Downey, the first baby born in Addison County in 2019. Sawyer, who weighed 7 pounds, 4.6 ounces and is 22 inches long, was born at 2 a.m. on Jan. 1, the day after his due date. Hedley added “Porter” in honor of the hospital, where her own mother used to work. Sawyer’s three-year-old sister, Jocelyn, had mixed feelings about the baby before he was born but was excited once she met him.
