A baby born in Riverton will be attached to a Christmas icon for the rest of her life.

Parents Nate and Angie Farmer knew baby Eva would be born around Christmas so they were already laughing about calling her Little Christmas Eva. But then they noticed her initials.

"Her Grandma's name is Lori. So it's Eva Lori Farmer," Nate Famer explains.

"ELF," laughs Angie Farmer.

And to make things even more fitting, little Eva, was delivered to her parents in a baby-sized stocking.

Throughout the month of December, new parents at Riverton Hospital's Labor and Delivery unit took their newborns home swaddled in a Christmas stocking.

"It's a fun holiday tradition we wanted to start for our parents," says Tiffany Spencer, nurse manager of Labor and Delivery at Riverton. "It's a fun and memorable way to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year."

Hospital volunteers worked through November and early December cutting fabric while nurses sewed the pieces together. They made more than 80 stockings.
