Not only was Elliette Noojin the first baby born to her parents, she was also the first baby born at Woman's Hospital in 2022. Kenneth Noojin and Stephanie Rhodes welcomed their baby girl into the world at 3:40 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2022.

Elliette was born at 3:40 a.m., weighing in at 7 lbs. 2 ozs. and measuring 20 inches long. Mom and baby are both doing well.

Woman's Hospital gifted the family a basket with books, supplies, and a onesie emblazoned with "First New Year Baby.” With 8,000 babies born each year at Woman's, Eliette is the first of many special lives that will be welcomed at the hospital in 2022.
