2013 did not start with a busy rush at the Women's Center in Dodge City.
One baby was born New Year's Day and another two were expected to arrive Wednesday.
The first baby of the new year in Dodge City is Dominga Guico-Batz, who arrived at 2:48 p.m. Tuesday. She weighed eight pounds, two ounces and was 19.5 inches long.
Her mother, Sebastiana Batz-Jiatax, characterized the labor as "slow," and both mother and daughter were resting happily Wednesday afternoon.
The father, Mariano Guico Castro, wore a wide smile.
