First baby of the year born in Waldo County
Chase Joseph Curtis is the 2014 New Year’s Baby. The Belfast family had been expecting Chase to be a Christmas Baby, but instead he waited and came into the world at 6:32 p.m. on New Year’s Day at Waldo County General Hospital. The 5-pound 15-ounce Chase is shown here with his mother, Victoria Dufresne, father, Stephen Curtis, and big brother, Caleb, who is five years old. As the New Year’s Baby, Chase was presented with a basketful of gifts from the Hospital.
