    Terri and Mike Gavel now know timing is everything. For the second straight year, the parents are the winners of the first baby contest at Sturdy Memorial Hospital.

    Their daughter Kelsey was born 9:37 p.m. on New Year's Day. A year ago, big sister Rory Ann was born at 12:16 a.m. Jan. 2, 2004.

    "I'm still shocked that it actually happened the second year in a row — no planning, no nothing," said mom Terri Gavel, 30. "It's a little unreal right now, still."

    As winners of the contest, Terri and Mike Gavel, 36, receive a variety of donated gifts.

    Both girls arrived before their due dates. Rory Ann arrived six days early, while Kelsey was a day early.

    "It's something that we'll be able to tell our kids when they're older and they understand," Terri Gavel said. "It's going to be neat for them."

    Not quite the same with my kids. I had my children on April 20, 1997 & April 22, 1999

    '97 child born 8:27pm, '99 child born 7:28pm.

    My kiddos ended up being born 2 yrs, 2days and 59minutes apart.

    Kindakool I thought
