WENATCHEE — No bleary-eyed, middle-of-the-night birth for this new babe. Elizabeth Carter came into the world, pink and perfect, just in time for lunch on New Year’s Day.
Central Washington Hospital’s first baby of the 2014 made an easy entrance, said mother Rebecca Carter, 28, of Wenatchee. “It gets easier every time,” said the mother of — counting the newborn — four young children. She laughed. “It seems like I just show up and push.”
