Bobbi and Chris Clark of Pocahontas are parents of the first baby born in 2010 at Palo Alto County Hospital.

Christopher Matthew Clark arrived at 2:02 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 3. He weighed 10 pounds, 5 ounces and he measured 21 1/2-inches long, and he has lots of dark hair.

Baby Christopher is the Clarks’ first child. Even though Bobbi arrived at the hospital on Jan. 1, baby Christopher just didn’t want to be born until his due date of Jan. 3. He proved to be a late night kind of person.

It was 22-degrees below zero when the Clarks came to Emmetsburg. The temperatures didn’t warm up much in the days to come, but their hearts were warmed with the arrival of baby Christopher.

Grandparents are Glen and Sheryll Sauer of Baltic, SD, and Michelle Ames of ?Pocahontas.

Baby Christopher and his parents received a basket from Emmetsburg Chamber of Commerce filled with gifts from local businesses.
