She was not only a first for Surrey Memorial Hospital – but also for her parents Sukhjeet and Kirandeep Sond.

Baby Avleen Sond, the couple's first child, was born just before 5 a.m. Jan. 1, weighing eight-and-a-half pounds, earning the title as the hospital's first baby of 2014.

Dad Sukhjeet said mom and baby are both healthy and the family was expecting to head home from hospital Friday.

B.C.'s first baby was born in Victoria, where Daryl Yen arrived one minute after midnight.
