Rockford Memorial Hospital delivers first baby of 2013


A Rockford couple has an extra special reason to celebrate the new year as they also welcome a new baby.

The little girl is the first to be born here in 2013.  Weighing in at just over seven pounds she was born just after 12:30 Tuesday morning at Rockford Memorial Hospital.  Proud parents Naomi Busse and her husband actually made two trips to the hospital.  Naomi says the final one was when their little bundle was ready to meet the world.  "When she was born I was like there is no way she could be the first baby, it's 34 minutes after, there are so many babies born after whenever, so yeah we didn't even think about it. It was big surprise to us."

They decided to name their baby Cadence Lynn Busse.  Naomi wasn't due until January 7th.
