As Saskatoon ushered in 2018 with music and fireworks, the city also welcomed a New Year’s baby.
Just four minutes after midnight, Paisley Barfield was born at Royal University Hospital (RUH). She weighed eight pounds, 15 ounces.
Her parents, Shannon and Brent Barfield, are both healthy and happy to welcome their newborn into the world.
The Barfields, Shannon from Young, Sask., and Brent from South Carolina, arrived at RUH around 3 a.m. on Dec. 31 and were expecting Paisley to arrive before the New Year’s countdown.

It’s expected Paisley will begin her life in Saskatchewan, as the family will head back to Young, but both Shannon and Brent hinted that the process to move south of the border is already underway.
