      New Year??s baby arrives near midnight

      Emma Grace Scott weighs 7 pounds, 9 ounces and she is 20 inches long.

      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.
