CUMMING, Ga. — Northside Hospital-Forsyth has welcomed its first baby of the New Year.

Elizabeth Ann Payne was born Tuesday, Jan. 1, weighing in at 10 pounds, nine ounces and was 22 inches long.

Baby Elizabeth was born to first-time parents Britney and Jeff Payne, of Roswell.

"Everyone was convinced Elizabeth would come early," said Britney. "[New Year's] really didn't figure in our minds until after she was born."

Britney began having contractions on Dec. 29, her due date.

By New Year's Eve and a couple trips to the hospital, she was finally ready to deliver.

Baby Elizabeth arrived at 2:39 a.m. on Jan. 1 and was one of just three babies who were born at Northside Hospital-Forsyth on New Year's Day.

"The day will always be a big party day," said Britney, who added that Elizabeth will always have fireworks for her birthday.

As for dad, "I'm putting in her application to UGA tomorrow," he joked.

The split household has plenty of time to decide on where Elizabeth will go to college, either the University of Georgia or Britney's alma mater Georgia Tech.

Both Britney and Jeff are city of Roswell police officers.

In recognition of the first baby of 2013, Northside Hospital-Forsyth gave the family a giant diaper cake with a teddy bear and other various baby care items, and Our365, the hospital's in-house newborn portrait provider, gave the family a gift certificate for a free photo package.

The March of Dimes, in celebration of the organization's 75th anniversary, provided a gift bag of products from the March of Dimes and other partners.
