While many people across our area rang in the new year out with friends and family, one Rockford family was lucky enough to spend it in the hospital—welcoming in the area's first baby of 2018.
Baby Felicity was born at 8:38 a.m. Monday morning at SwedishAmerican Hospital. Felicity weighed in at 8 lbs and 2 ounces and actually was born earlier than expected. Mom and dad say they weren't expecting Felicity to be born until Wednesday.
Felicity's parents tell 13 News they are thrilled to have a new year's baby, calling it special and something they can tell her about when she grows up. This was the couple's first baby.
