WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - A baby boy who was scheduled to be born last year arrived late and was born early this year in Iowa.

Little Jaycob Ryan Weber Jr. was delivered at 12:45 a.m. Tuesday at Covenant Medical Center in Waterloo.

His mother, 22-year-old Raven Vicchio, told the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier that doctors had scheduled a delivery on Monday in part because she had developed gestational diabetes and partly because Jaycob's father was leaving Thursday for military service.

Vicchio's labor took most of the day and night, and Jaycob wasn't born until after the new year arrived.

She says he's perfectly healthy and weighed in at 6 pounds and 11 ounces.
