It's going to be hard to beat Elias Wang as the first baby of 2007 in North Carolina.
The 7-pound, 1-ounce baby was born five seconds after the start of the new year. Elias was born at midnight in the Naval Hospital on Camp Lejeune. Mother and baby are doing fine.
Penny Wang and her husband, Navy Lieutenant Steve Wang, already have a 19-month old daughter.
Today, the Camp Lejeune Oak Leaf Club will present the family with a large baby gift basket.
