Jaxson Dean Fancher, son of Dylan and Elizabeth Fancher of Washburn, claimed honors for being the First Baby of 2020 at Cox Monett Hospital. Fancher arrived at 2:21 a.m. on Jan. 1. He weighed in at 6 pounds, 8 ounces, and measured 19.5 inches long. He will be welcomed home by two siblings: Oren, 4, and Charlotte, 21 months. Dr. Ronda Azelton, Family Practice and Obstetrics of Monett, delivered the New Year’s baby. The hospital presented the family with a gift basket that included plush toys, bibs, a rattle, onesie, a book and congratulatory card from the hospital administration and staff. Fancher pushed the boys further in the lead of first babies. Over the past 78 years of tracking first babies, The Monett Times has tallied 43 boys and 35 girls. Contributed photo
