GREENFIELD — Heath Allen Voils may have been wearing a monster onesie, but according to his parents, he’s anything but.
Hancock County’s first baby of the New Year was born at 8:37 a.m. Wednesday. Parents Jamie Moore and Barry Voils said he’s been showered with attention from family ever since.
“He always has this look on his face like, ‘What’s going on?’” Moore said.
There was no competition this year on who would be the first baby born at Hancock Regional Hospital. There was no baby born on the holiday, and Heath was the only one there Wednesday.
“It’s just kind of nice to be the only ones on the floor,” Moore said.
Heath has two half-brothers, Ashton and Peyton; and a half-sister, Heaven. Moore said Heaven, 3, was in awe when she visited.
“She came up yesterday, and it was so cute; she sat in bed with me and she was like, ‘Oh my goodness!’” she said.
Moore is a 2003 graduate of New Palestine High School, and the family lives in Cumberland. Voils is originally from Indianapolis, and he said he’s happy and excited every time he looks at his new son.
Heath was born on time, with no complications. Moore says he rarely cries – so far – and while he may eventually turn out to be like the monster on the shirt he was wearing Thursday morning, he so far has been laid-back.
“He looks like his dad. He definitely came out with my fingers and toes; they’re very long,” Moore said, adding that she sometimes wonders what he’ll be like when he gets a little older. “Seeing his toes and hands, I think, ‘Oh yeah, maybe he’ll be a basketball player or swimmer like I was.’”
