Petaluma girl first baby of 2013

Aiyana Hairston joined the world 1 hour and 47 minutes into 2013, much to the delight of her sister – but not because of the distinction that comes with being Sonoma County's first baby born in the new year.

You see, sister Kaiya turns 4 today and want to make sure there was a clear delineation of sibling birthdays. No joint birthday parties. No combining of special days.

"She didn't want to share. She asked for it to be any day but her birthday," said dad LeRoy Hairston, 29, of Petaluma, who was reveling in the new family with mom Natalie Navas, 30, at Petaluma Valley Hospital.

Aiyana edged out two other babies born in other Sonoma County hospitals the following hour to win the crown of first New Year baby. She weighed in at 7 pounds, 3 ounces and was 19 1/2 inches long.

She and her mother were resting comfortably Tuesday afternoon greeting a stream of family and friends.
