The New Year brings many new things, including babies. The first baby born this year at Columbia??s University Children??s Hospital was Emma Grace Scott.
Emma entered the world at 12:05 a.m.
She weighs 7 pounds, 9 ounces and she is 20 inches long.
Matt and Amber Scott said the newest member of their family was in a hurry to join them.
Amber Scott said, ??I started pushing about 5 minutes before midnight and she was here 5 minutes after that. She didn??t take long at all. They had to tell me to stop pushing so the doctors could get in there.??
Emma has a step brother, a sister and 2 brothers.
Hospital officials gave the Scotts a toy wagon filled with goodies for having the 2014 New Year??s baby.
