FOR proud parents Kirby and Gary McKeon, the New Year has an extra special meaning.
The McKeon family are celebrating the birth of their little boy, who is being welcomed into the world as Scone’s very first baby for 2018.
Riven Parker McKeon was born at Scott Memorial Hospital on January 6 at 3:22am, weighing in at 4640 grams.
Baby Riven is a younger brother to four-year-old Braxton and two-year-old Harlow, which brings the McKeon family to five.
Kirby says he has been a dream since day one.
“Everything went really well,” she said.
“We are back at home now and he has been introduced to the kids.
“The time has already gone so quickly!
“He’s actually getting a lot of sleep every night – but I won’t speak too soon,” she laughed.
Like his sibling’s names, Kirby says Riven was a name that “just stuck” and had been selected far before his arrival.
