What better way to enjoy the blizzard than snuggling with your newborn?

That’s what one Anne Arundel County mom is doing this weekend, after anxiously watching the forecast wondering if her son would be born in the middle of the storm.

Jillian Hostetter’s second child, 8-pound, 19.5-inch Jonah Bradley, arrived at 7:19 a.m. Saturday, technically when winter storm Jonas was already in full force. The 29-year-old from Churchton had been at Anne Arundel Medical Center since Friday night.

She told ABC2 Friday afternoon that she and her husband had already made plans to stay in a hotel room near the hospital if she wasn’t in labor before the snow hit.

“Please no one try to get to hospital today. We are going to snuggle down and enjoy the snow. We will be happy to have visitors tomorrow at the hospital,” Hostetter wrote on Facebook.
