Several babies are born to Meeker parents every year but it is rare for a baby to be born in Meeker. Anevay Brilynn Crawford surprised her parents Kelly and Vicki Crawford early Wednesday morning. Luckily they live across the street from Pioneers Medical Center because five minutes after they arrived at the hospital, Anevay arrived into the arms of nurse Kim Warren. “It’s so exciting,” Warren, who has been a nurse since 1996 and in Meeker since 2000, said. “I’ve been in on three births but this is the first time I caught the baby. It happened so fast I just reacted.” “I knew we wouldn’t make it to Craig,” Vicki Crawford said. Crawford said it was also her aunt Vicky Crawford’s birthday today. Anevay was the first baby born at Pioneers Medical Center since 2010. She weighed 7 pounds, 10 ounces and was 20 inches long. Mother and baby were doing fine.
