HOUSTON — Some babies wasted no time showing their faces in 2023.
Just minutes after the clock struck midnight, several little ones made their grand appearance into the world.
The Houston area welcomed its first baby of the new year at 12:09 a.m. at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center.
Just a minute later, at 12:10 a.m., Baby Sebastian Trapp was born into this world at St. Luke’s Hospital in Sugar Land. Baby Sebastian weighed 8 pounds and 12 ounces.
Francesca was born at 12:15 a.m. at Texas Children's Pavilion for Women. She weighed 6 pounds and 5 ounces and measured 21 inches long.
Baby Adam was the first baby born at Woman’s Hospital of Texas. The little guy obviously could not wait to get the New Year started because he arrived a few days before his original due date of Jan. 12.
Olesya Basak, Adam’s mother, says they had plans for NYE. They never expected he would come early.
"We prepared all these delicious foods for celebration, we brought champagne for our guests, everything to celebrate," Olesya said.
After four hours of labor, Adam was born at 12:28 a.m. at a healthy 6 pounds 14 ounces.
"Every new year it will be a gift for us. Every year and many, many more New Years,” Olesya said.
Making her appearance at 12:32 a.m. was Claire Vy Kazantsev who was born at Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital.
Jared Armijo was born at Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital at 12:56 a.m. and baby A'Mia Grace Kimmell was born at Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital at 1:05 am.
