A Maywood couple’s fifth child was the first baby born at West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park.
David Luke Crowe was born at 7:05 a.m. on Jan. 1. Crowe weighed 7 pounds, 3 ounces and stood 19.5 inches tall.
“I am definitely surprised that David is the first baby of the new year born at West Suburban,” Crowe’s mother, Nerissa Crowe, of Maywood, said in a statement released by hospital officials. “I usually am several weeks early.”
David is the fifth child born to Nerissa and her husband, Jeremy Crowe. Their other children include Micah James, 12; Josiah Thomas, 11; Caris Lucia, 9 and Caleb Andrew, 4.
“We named all of our children with a first name from the Old Testament and a middle name from the New Testament,” said their Jeremy, who is a pastor at Armitage Baptist Church in Albany Park. VFP
