Brian and Kathryn Wilson were hoping that their son would be born on their five-year wedding anniversary.

As it turned out, he was a bit late and they welcomed their son, Cole Alan Wilson, on New Year’s Day. It appears he was also the first child born on Whidbey in 2014.

Cole was born at 1:03 p.m., Jan. 1 at the Whidbey General Hospital Family Birthplace and weighed in at 9 pounds and was 20 inches in length at birth.

“We were hoping he would come on our anniversary,” Kathryn said.

The Wilsons celebrated their five-year anniversary Dec. 30, two days before their son was born. He was originally due Dec. 22.

She joked that she had hoped Cole would arrive shortly after the new year started.

Cole marks the first child for Brian and Kathryn. Brian is a crypto-technician stationed at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island and is originally from Detroit. Kathryn hails from Cleveland.

Cole’s birth caps a busy year for the Whidbey Family Birthplace, which delivered its first baby in 1991.

In 2013, The Whidbey Family Birthplace saw 181 babies born, which is an increase from 154 in 2012. The birth center saw 197 babies born in 2011.
