First baby arrives at hospital Thursday
space
Two-year-old Holly Bukovic exclaimed “Hunter” when she was asked about her new baby brother, just hours old, at Aspirus Langlade Hospital this morning.

Hunter, son of Kate and Mike Bukovic of Hiles, located a dozen miles north of Crandon, arrived at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 3, earning honors as the first baby of 2019.

Attending physician was Dr. Dennis McFadden. Hunter was 7 lbs, 8 1/2 oz and measured 19 3/4 inches at birth.

The little guy yawned but Kate and Mike were more enthused about the long list of gift certificates the family will receive as winners of the Antigo Daily Journal's annual First Baby contest, a tradition dating back over 50 years.

“I remember hearing stories about first babies over the years but I didn't think it would be him,” Kate said, explaining that Hunter was originally due on Dec. 10 and was delivered via C-section.

“It really didn't come as a thought,” Mike added.

They both stressed the gift certificates, movie passes, haircuts and more will come in handy for their family, which also includes six-year-old William, who didn't make this morning's photo because he was attending classes at Crandon Elementary School.

Mike is a self-employed dump truck driver while Kate is a stay-at-home mom, who will be very busy with three young children at home.

The list of prizes is a long one. It includes:

Antigo Daily Journal, free three-month subscription; Palace Twin Theatre, two free passes for mom and dad; El Tequila Mexican Restaurant, $10 gift certificate; Bula Chiropractic, free initial exam and adjustment for mom and baby; Swartzendruber's Supper Club, $10 gift certificate.
