Community Memorial Hospital's first baby of the year made her grand entrance Tuesday, Jan. 2, at 11:09 p.m. Blythe and Jason Bartl of Cloquet are the proud parents of Rachel Erin Bartl.

Rachel is their first child. While the babe was due Jan. 6, this little girl decided not to be fashionably late. Instead, Blythe went into labor four days early at 11 a.m. and delivered after 12 hours. The healthy little girl, delivered by Dr. James Rogers, weighed 8 pounds, 10 ounces and was 20 inches long.

Blythe said her pregnancy was uneventful until the unexpected early labor and delivery. Nurses Karen Williams and Janet Bader agreed.

The couple have not decided how many siblings Rachel will have.

Several visitors lined up and waited patiently to hold the new baby as she had her photos taken the next afternoon.
