Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center, Lincoln, Neb., welcomed its first baby of the New Year, Emily Elizabeth Kenning, at just 10 seconds past midnight on January 1. The 6-pound, three-ounce Emily was the first baby of 2008 in Lincoln, in the state of Nebraska and possibly in the entire U.S. While there is no official documentation of the nation’s first baby of the New Year, Saint Elizabeth staff members researched several sources and found no baby born earlier than Emily on January 1.
