RICHLAND, Wash. -- The first baby to arrive at Kadlec Regional Medical Center did so at a most coincidental time. Sunny Liu, son of Haixia Liu and her husband Qingtao Luo, was delivered this morning at 11:11 AM, on 1/1/11. If you want to add another twist to the story, Sunny weighed 5 lbs. 5 oz, half of 11. And he was born in delivery room #1.
The family is doing great, and the Luo family recently moved to the Tri-Cities not even a month ago from China to work as engineers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
Baby Sunny was delivered by Dr. Larry Smith.
Over at Kennewick General Hospital, , Fidelia Izazaga-Saucedo of Eltopia, welcomed her new baby boy, weighing in at 7 lbs. and 19 ½ inches in length. The new addition was welcomed to the world at 2:29 a.m. on January 1, 2011, which makes him KGH's first baby of the year.
