Menomonie first 2019 baby

Lincoln Sullivan-Forsberg, born at 8:07 p.m. on Jan. 2, 2019, is the first baby of the new year at Mayo Clinic Health System – Red Cedar in Menomonie. 

Menomonie’s first baby of 2019 – born at Mayo Clinic Health System – Red Cedar in Menomonie – took his sweet time arriving after New Year’s Day.

Quinn Sullivan-Forsberg and her husband, Erick Sullivan-Forsberg, both of Menomonie, are parents of the first baby born at the hospital in Menomonie in 2019.

Lincoln John Sullivan-Forsberg was born at 8:07 p.m. on Jan. 2.

He is the Sullivan-Forsbergs’ first child, and came early—he was due on Jan. 11.

The Sullivan-Forsbergs were at home on New Year’s Day talking to the baby, saying, “You can come any time now; your water can break.”

Apparently, Lincoln is a good listener.

Five minutes later, Quinn Sullivan-Forsberg’s water broke, and the couple went to the hospital.

It was a long labor with Quinn Sullivan-Forsberg 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 Sullivan-Forsberg’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 Sullivan-Forsberg. “Lincoln is so beautiful with lots of hair and beautiful eyes. No words can describe what it’s like becoming a parent.”

Lincoln John Sullivan-Forsberg weighed 6 pounds, 10 ounces and was 19 1/4 inches long at birth.
