One family in Raleigh County is doing more than just celebrating the start of a new year, they've welcomed in a new bundle of joy.

Felicia and Farmer Ritter are the proud parents of Trinity.

Trinity was born early this morning

She is 20 and 3 quarter inches long and an impressive 8 pounds 4.4 ounces.

The parents are as proud can be about their new baby.

 

"We did get to do our New Year's kiss at midnight, although it was right between a contraction so that will be one we remember for the rest of our lives," said Felicia Ritter, mother.

Trinity's dad says with four girls in the house, he'll now have to make himself a place of retreat.
