BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - If it were a race, it may have been a photo finish for the title of Baton Rouge's first baby of 2016.

Parents Courtney and Joshua said hello Emma-Lynne, as she said hello to the world at 12:45 a.m. at Baton Rouge General.

Nathaniel was born 15 minutes earlier at 12:30 a.m. at Woman's Hospital. When asked about a camouflage jacket already embroidered with the newborn's name, his parents, Julie and Matthew said that his great aunt made it for him, and that they were looking forward to fishing trips with the newest member of their family.

Little baby Brynleigh, born to parents Sabrina and Johnathan, was reported to have come into the world as early as 12:18 a.m. at Oshsner Medical Center, making her Baton Rouge's first baby of 2016.
