The first newborn for 2022 in Steamboat Springs is a healthy baby girl named Harlow Jade Ehrlich who was born at the start of the New Year.
Daughter Harlow, first-time parents Jake and Nicki Ehrlich, both 30, arrived at 8:10 a.m. on Tuesday at 6 pounds, 15 ounces, 18.5 inches at UCHealth Yampa Valley Medical Center.
The couple, who have lived in Steamboat Springs for seven years, waited until the baby was born to learn the sex, which dad Jake was happy to be the first to announce as mum’s daughter.
Nicki, who is a nursing student at Colorado Mountain College, said she had “a really easy and enjoyable pregnancy” and stayed very active by mountain biking, hiking with her. dog and skiing carefully in the backcountry until the end of her pregnancy. Nicki will be graduating from the CMC nursing program this spring and plans to work locally as a registered nurse.
Jake is the owner of Lone Pine Performance, a suspension tuning company that opened in Steamboat in July.
Harlow was presented by Dr. David Schaller of the UCHealth Women’s Care Clinic. Medical center officials say 341 babies were delivered to UCHealth YVMC in 2021.
