Jess Wencil and Brett Weilacher welcomed their first child into the world on Monday, Jan. 2, at 5:28 p.m., making Brook LeeAnn Weilacher Warren’s first baby of 2017.

While Brook may have been a day late for the actual New Year’s Day, she was about 7 days ahead of her due date, Wencil said.

Asked whether she and Weilacher were ready for the early arrival, she laughed. “No,” Wencil said, “not quite.”

Wencil said that she and Weilacher were in the process of buying and moving into a new home when Brook decided she was ready to meet the world. Wencil said they are “in the middle” of the moving process, so they have their hands full but are proud parents just the same.

Brook was seven pounds, one and a half ounces and 21 inches long. She was delivered by Dr. Timothy Coombs of Warren Pediatrics.

The family was discharged Wednesday morning, Jan. 4.
