Hello, handsome!

I can't say it's an original story, talking about the first baby of the New Year.  It is, however, usually a pretty happy one:)

                          

Today I got to meet this future heartbreaker, Jamarion Anthony Madison.  He is the third child for mom, Stephanie.  She says she started having contractions just a few minutes after midnight. 

                  

I'll give the little guy credit, he didn't crash the New Year's party until AFTER the ball dropped:)  He was born at 3:21am, making him the first baby of 2013 in Evansville.

This story made me think about a scene from the movie "Four Christmases".  At the end, a couple (played by Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon) are in their hospital room, minding their own business with their newborn, when a reporter and cameraman burst in putting them on live tv to ask them about THEIR New Year's baby.

                          

Ok, that, in real life would NEVER happen!  When we do stories at our local hospitals, the element of surprise is not part of them.  Patients always have to give their permission before their face can be put on tv!  Today, both Deaconess and St. Mary's knew the media would likely be interested in doing a story about the first baby of 2013, so they decided in advance to compare notes, figure out which hospital was home to the soon-to-be celebrity, and then let us know.  It was all planned in advance.  Even today, the mother I believe was given several HOURS notice.  So rushing right in the maternity wing, let alone any OTHER part of the hospital, with a camera on… it ain't happening! :)

I will say, little Jamarion pretty much slept through the entire interview.  Hopefully one day his mom uses our footage to embarrass him in front of his first girlfriend!  Ha—at least that's what I'd do if I were her!

Hope your 2013 is off to a good start, if not quite as exciting as Jamarion's:)  As predicted, I didn't even make it to midnight last night.  We watched the ball drop on Eastern time and pretended!  :) 

Until next time,

Erin
