Hollister – Hollister’s last baby of 2006 has an unusual name to go with his unusual day of his birth – Ryton Garin Harrison.

Jennifer Frazure and Kyle Harrison, the baby’s parents, said they picked the name from a book.

“We wanted him to have a name no one else had,” Frazure said.

Ryton Harrison, weighing in at 7 pounds, 11.4 ounces, was born at 12:54am Dec. 30 at Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital.

“We were expecting him by Christmas, so we’re just glad to get him out,” Frazure said.

In fact, she said, they didn’t know Ryton was the final baby of the year until they were contacted by the Free Lance on Tuesday.

There is at least one big advantage to having a baby before the end of the year – the couple will be able to list Ryton as a dependent on their 2006 income tax return. Harrison said that although they didn’t waste much time thinking about whether they’d have a 2006 or 2007 baby, the tax break is definitely something they’re aware of.

“We want to be able buy things for him, and this will help with that,” Harrison said.

Harrison and Frazure are both newcomers to Hollister – Harrison is from Monterey, and Frazure is from Salinas. However, Frazure said, her parents, sister and brother-in-law live in Hollister, and she and Harrison plan to raise their son here.

Harrison, 27, and Frazure, 26, told the Free Lance this is their first child; Frazure said that although the baby is “doing wonderful,” the situation is still “overwhelmingly scary.” When they brought Ryton home on Dec. 31, he cried all night.

“We didn’t sleep at all,” Frazure said.

Frazure also said that since her pregnancy was a surprise, she hasn’t given much thought to whether Ryton will be getting brothers and sisters any time soon.

It’s common to hear parents offer grand ambitions for their newborn child. However, Frazure said she isn’t necessarily planning for a future neurosurgeon or president. Instead, she just wants an active boy who participates in sports.

Harrison added, “We just hope he’s not lazy.”
