1/9/2013 8:13:00 AM First baby of new year born at Windom Area Hospital
The stork waited until Saturday afternoon to make its first delivery to Windom Area Hospital.
That's when Zeke Allen Mathiowetz came into the world, arriving at 3:39 p.m., Jan. 5. Zeke, who weighed 6 lbs., 14 oz., at birth, was born to Jenna Zamzow and Scott Mathiowetz of Windom.
Jenna says Zeke was a normal birth and arrived very close to her due date.
Grandparents of the newborn are Scott and Angie Zamzow of Windom, Marvin Mathiowetz and Corrine Helget of Springfield and Carrie Hanson and Shane Menken of Mt. Lake.
Great-grandparents are Arnold Dick and Cheryl Dick, both of Mt. Lake.
In addition to Zeke's birth, three other births - all in December - are listed under the bulletin board on the Area Faces page located on page 8 of today's Cottonwood County Citizen on newsstands today.
