Covenant welcomes New Year's baby


Just minutes into the new year, one of the first babies of 2013 entered the world at Covenant Medical Center in Waterloo.

Jaycob Ryan Weber, Junior was born at 12:45 Tuesday morning.  He weighed 6 pounds, 11 ounces, and was 19 inches long.  Mom Raven and dad Jaycob were a bit surprised to have a New Year's baby, after a 20-hour long New Year's Eve labor!

"I was scheduled to be induced on the 31st, and I didn't know I would labor that long.  I thought he was going to be born before midnight, but guess I was wrong!" said mom Raven Vicchio.

Vicchio says it still hasn't quite set in that she's now a mommy, but she's thrilled to finally be holding her baby boy.
