Trinity Health Welcomes Leap Year Baby

At least one "Leap Year Baby" was born this afternoon at Trinity Hospital, with four additional moms in labor.

Paul and Tricia Stucki (Stoo'-ki) gave birth to a daughter, Maylie, shortly after 2 p.m.  The girl weighed 7 pounds, 15 ounces.

Labor was induced, so Paul Stucki says he and his wife actually chose February 29 as the birth date.

"We went back and forth," Paul said.   "We already had two March babies.  Not many people are born on February 29, so we thought it would be kind of cool."

He said they haven't discussed the matter, but they likely will celebrate Maylie's birthday next year on February 28.
