It didn't take long for the population of Massapequa to grow in 2014.

A baby girl, whose mother is from Massapequa was the first child delivered on Long Island this year, according to officials at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip,

Jacqueline Rodriquez delivered her first daughter, Pamela, two weeks early at 12:22 am, weighing in at 8 lbs., 4.5 oz. She will join her three brothers; Steven, Angel and Brian at home. 

In honor of the baby girl’s arrival, the medical center presented the family with gift baskets donated by Babies R Us and Good Samaritan. The delivering physician was Aaron David, MD. 

Each year, approximately 3,000 babies are delivered at Good Samaritan.

Congrats to the parents!!! Loved Pamela choice for the name of the first baby! Parents are indeed very lucky! My favorite choices for baby names are always “safe”, for example something among these popular baby names for 2014: Karter, Kendrick or King (apparently K- starting baby names will be hot in 2014 as http://www.babynameslog.com/popular-baby-names-2014/ reports). My all time favorite is Adelynn though, sweet and cute, ideal for pretty baby girls! Wish you all the best for 2014 !!! Love, Amanda xx
