For those of you who have been patients here with us at Champion Performance and Physical Therapy during the past 9 months, you'd know that our very own Hope Hillyard and her husband, Nick, were expecting their first child. They opted to be surprised, and did not know the sex of their baby!
Yesterday at 12:29 PM, 4 days past her due date of June 10th (but coincidentally on her original projected due date of June 14th), the question was finally answered as Hope gave birth to a healthy baby
Hartzell Leo is 8 lbs 12 oz, and 21 in long.
Hartzell is a family name passed down by tradition on the Hillyard side of the family; the first born son acquiring the name of the first born son from one or more generations before him. Their new little man will likely go by "Hartz," just as Nick's grandfather does, who incidentally celebrated his 90th birthday this year. This is the first time in family history that the eponym will be able to meet his namesake!
A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO HOPE AND NICK FOR THE BIRTH OF THEIR SON - WE LOVE YOU!
