Meet Delaware Valley's Baby New Year 2013

Posted: Updated:
ABINGTON, Pa. -

A local family has an extra reason to celebrate Tuesday.

Meet Marguerite Lynn, the first baby born in the Delaware Valley in 2013. She came into this world just five minutes after midnight at Abington Memorial Hospital.

Of course, mom and dad – Gregory and Sara Stokes – are overjoyed, but they say they weren't trying to have 2013's first baby: "We were shooting for the tax deduction. We missed it by five minutes."

Marguerite Lynn weighs 8 pounds, 2 ounces, and she's 20 inches long. Mom, dad, and baby are all doing well.
