Parents have first baby of new year — again

/ Source: The Associated Press

A central Pennsylvania couple have a new tradition for ringing in the new year: spending it in the maternity ward.

For the second year in a row, Kyle and Becky Armstrong welcomed the first baby of the year at Gettysburg Hospital.

Faith Lynn Armstrong arrived on New Year's Day at 5:23 a.m. Her sister, Kaden Skye, was the hospital's first baby in 2007 — also born on Jan. 1.

Nurse manager Laura Swomley said she'd never seen anything like it in 25 years at the hospital.

"It's strange," agreed Becky Armstrong, of Gettysburg. "It's all very weird."
