Elliot Kuznia is the First Baby Born at RiverView Health in 2018


Elliot Oliver James Kuznia wasn’t due to arrive at RiverView Health until Jan. 15th but he decided to make his way into the world ahead of schedule on Jan. 9th to be named RiverView’s First Baby of 2018!

The first baby born in 2017 also arrived on Jan. 9th. As a matter of fact, three title winners in the past six years have been born on Jan. 9th. Maybe Elliot knew the 9th was a fashionable date or maybe he realized another baby was in the running for the title, arriving just the next morning at RiverView.

The third child born to proud parents Destiny and Jarvis Kuznia, Red Lake Falls, Elliot was born at 6:34 am. He weighed in at 8 pounds 2.9 ounces and measured 21 inches long. Dr. Erik Kanten delivered the little guy with two middle names, a fact he shares with his dad.

Elliot is already loved by big sisters Audrina, 5, and Londyn, 3. He is the grandson of Kevin and Michelle Harmoning, Red Lake Falls, Tony and Diana Kuznia, Buffalo, ND, and the late Shirley Knoff. Elliot’s great grandparents are Eva Miller, Red Lake Falls, and Robert Harmoning, Red Lake Falls.

As the first baby of 2018, Elliot will receive a care package from area merchants.

The Kuznia family: Elliot, Destiny, Audrina, Jarvis and Londyn.
