Regina and Saskatoon welcomed the first babies of 2016 to the world Friday morning.
Between Saskatchewan's two biggest cities, both a boy and a girl took the honours of being the New Year's babies.
In Regina, a baby girl was born at the Regina General Hospital just after midnight at 12:15 a.m. CST. The girl - who had not been given a name when the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region released the announcement - apparently wanted to be the New Year's baby so bad she came into the world a few weeks ahead of schedule.
The baby girl and her parents, Catherine and Elvin Cudia from Melville, Sask., are doing well.
In Saskatoon, baby boy Jaxson John Diehl waited until 1:29 a.m. before becoming Saskatoon's official first baby of 2016. Jaxson weighed six pounds and is doing well, according to the Saskatoon Health Region.
