On Jan. 9 Jake McBride and Aliya Khan welcomed their baby girl, Kelsey, 6 pounds, 10 ounces. She is the first baby to be born this year in the Cowichan Lake District. They were presented with a laundry basket full of baby basics, clothing and supplies from Xi Gamma Kappa chapter of Beta Sigma Phi. Kelsey is joined by her big brother, Dylan and big sister, Taylor. She seems to like her new living arrangements as she was up to 8 pounds and two ounces on Feb.3. Congratulations to the entire family and welcome to the world Kelsey!
