Leo Cerezo arrived just in time to become the first baby born in Santa Barbara County in 2020 at Marian Regional Medical Center (MRMC). Coming into the world at 12:50 a.m., the bundle of joy weighed in at 8 pounds, four ounces, and measured 21 1/4 inches long.

Baby’s mother, Daisha Loreto, and father Bernardo Cerezo, are overjoyed about their unexpected New Year’s arrival. Leo is the second baby for the proud parents, who also have a daughter named Khalanie. Both mom and baby are healthy and doing well.

To celebrate and welcome this bundle of joy, MRMC mom and baby nurses presented mom, dad, and baby with a beautiful gift basket filled with goodies and essentials for the sweet bundle of joy.

“It feels unbelievable to have the New Year’s baby, and we will have a countdown to his birthday each year,” says new father Bernardo. “We are so blessed because our first baby was premature and this time was a different experience; he is a healthy, full-term baby boy.”

The Maternal and Newborn Center at Marian offers a loving start for every baby and loving care for every mom. Our private labor & delivery, and recovery suites are equipped with advanced equipment to ensure the safety of the mother and baby. Additionally, our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides highly specialized, family-centered care for newborns that require extra attention.

Congratulations little one, you just inherited a $60,000 per person public pension debt that you had no part in creating. Get busy and pay up. This public pension debt will follow you for the rest of your life and increase annually.

Welcome to the world, and our1/1 Birth Club! Your birthday will challenge you in decades to come. Social Security doesn’t recognize January 1 for reasons unknown, so we become a year older on December 1. That’s an extra month of benefits, that causes great confusion with Medicare Supp and Drug coverage plans. However for income tax purposes, your parents lost the annual deduction by an hour: go figure! If government schools have a 12/5 birth cut off date to start K, you can slide in as a 12/1 babe. You’ll also find many folks - not wanting to share their actually b’day - enter 1/1 as their ‘fake’ date of birth. As a result, you’ll be questioned: ‘Is January 1 really your birthday? Prove it.’ Expect sparkling cider, champagne toasts or 1/1 birthday greetings only from those who aren’t glued to watching the Rose Parade and football. If you want fun childhood b’day parties with kids, celebrate your half birthday on 7/1 until you’re 18 years. Otherwise too many kid friends will have family commitment conflicts on 1/1, and can’t come to party with you. Your parents will figure it out.
