Meet The First Rockford Baby of 2018

ROCKFORD - When it comes to the new year, the term 'first-born' takes on a new meaning.

Meet Felicity Slazakowski.  She was born at 8:38am at SwedishAmerican Hospital, making her the first Rockford baby of 2018.  Felcity's mother, Holly, told Eyewitness News it was a bit of a surprise.  She had a C-Section scheduled for Wednesday.  But, Felicity apparently didn't want to wait.

"I woke up sore and I was thinking it'll go away," said Holly Slazakowski.  "It never did and a pattern kind of emerged.  I noticed it was happening every five minutes and I was getting the breaks in between and it went on for over an hour.  I woke him up.  I said, "Warm up the car.  It's time to go.'"

Felicity was born at a healthy 8lb 2oz.
