CRESCO - Jaxon Lee Selden is the First Baby of the Year for the Times Plain Dealer’s Contest.
He joins his parents, Ashley Kulish and Dustin Selden at home in Canton, Minn., along with four brothers, Hunter (eight), Blake (five), Ben (four) and Carter (one)!
Jaxon was born on Jan. 5, 2018 at 7:01 a.m. at Regional Health Services of Howard County. He weighed in at six pounds, 15 ounces and was 19.5 inches long.
The couple settled on the name Jaxon after Dustin came up with it. “I said I liked it,” said Ashley, and they had the name . . . but not the spelling. They decided on that the day he was born. Lee was chosen for Ashley’s brother’s middle name.
Big brother Hunter will probably be protective of little Jaxon. At the time of the interview, Ashley said he had only seen pictures of the new addition, “but he has been staring at the pictures!”
The next oldest brother, Carter, might not be as happy when Jaxon comes home. Ashley explained, “He is 14 months. We’re going to have our hands full. He wants to be carried all the time.”
Ashley plans on being a stay-at-home mom this spring. It will make the transition of four kids to five much easier to navigate.
With five boys in the family, Ashley has been getting asked about trying for a girl. When Dr. Kammerer asked her that question, she quipped, “Not a good time to ask. It hurts right now!”
Besides the immediate family, Jaxon’s extended family is happy to have him in their lives. That includes grandparents Tammy Kulish of Cresco, Don Kulish of Fayette, Iowa, Norita Fawcet of Canton and Pat Selden of Arkansas. Proud great-grandparents are Rita and Cliff Kulish of Wisconsin, Rita and Hank Selden of Canton and Pat Gage of Fayette.
For being the first baby of the year, Jaxon and his family have received items from area businesses that sponsored the contest. Those giving gift certificates or Chamber Dollars included CUSB Bank, Regional Health Services of Howard County, Plantpeddler, The County Store & Store Next Door, Sue-Z-Qs, Dough & Joe and Cresco Heating & Ventilation, LLC.
Those businesses who gave gifts were CIA Insurance - gift basket; O’Henry’s Stitches & Prints - embroidered baby blanket; Holstrom’s Gift & Jewelry - engraved spoon; Ox & Wren Spirits & Gifts - gift; Fareway - package of newborn Huggies; and Times Plain Dealer - one-year subscription to the paper.
