MENOMONIE, Wis. — Quinn Sullivan-Forsberg and her husband, Erick, of Menomonie, are parents of the first baby born at Mayo Clinic Health System – Red Cedar in Menomonie in 2019. Lincoln John Sullivan-Forsberg was born at 8:07 p.m. on Jan. 2.
This is the Sullivan-Forsberg’s first child. Due on Jan. 11, the Sullivan-Forsbergs were at home New Year’s Day talking to the baby saying, “You can come any time now; your water can break.” Apparently, the baby is a good listener. Five minutes later, Quinn's water broke, and the couple went to the hospital.
It was a long labor with Quinn delivering the next day at 8:07 p.m.
While Lincoln was not born on Jan. 1, he continues a family tradition of babies celebrating the new year with birthdays. Erick’s brother, Shannon Forsberg, was born on Jan. 1.
“It’s pretty exciting because January birthday parties are going to be a lot of fun to celebrate with my son and his uncle,” says proud dad Erick. “Lincoln is so beautiful with lots of hair and beautiful eyes. No words can describe what it’s like becoming a parent.”
Lincoln weighed 6 pounds, 10 ounces and was 19 1/4 inches long at birth.
