Yukon's new year's baby is returning home Monday, along with her 'amazed' parents, Amber Etzel and Eric John of Faro.

The as-yet-unnamed girl was born Jan. 2 at 10:24 p.m. Hospital staff gave her a toque for being the first Yukon baby of the year. She also has a two-year-old sister, Maya.

Her parents say they weren't thinking about having 2016's new year's baby, but say they're amazed about the way it worked out.
