 SEAFORD, Del. (WBOC) - Two hours and 55 minutes after we said farewell to 2014, parents Valerie and Jason of Sussex County said hello to a healthy baby girl. Charlie was the first baby born at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in Seaford in 2015.

For many people the new year means fresh starts and a chance to embrace new beginnings. That is certainly the case for parents of Charlie, born at 2:55 a.m. in Seaford.

Weighing in at 6 pounds 6 ounces and measuring 19 inches long, baby Charlie made her grand entrance.

"She's actually slept for quite a while," said mom Valerie, "I just haven't slept yet."

Valerie and Jason are parents to two other children, a 7-year-old big sister, and big brother Austin, who will turn 4 in a few weeks. Both children said they were excited about the new addition to the family.

Valerie's due date was January 19th, but because of medical reasons, her doctor decided to induce her early.

"I was supposed to go in Friday, but they got the lab work in and said 'you need to come right now,' so we came in around 4, between 4 and 4:30 we got here yesterday," said Valerie.

Despite coming a little earlier than expected, Charlie is doing well, and has had lots of company.

"My parents visited, my friends, we have had quite a few people visit already," said Valerie.

Charlie is ready to take on the world, dressed in lots of pink. After a nap of course.
