Parents welcome first baby of 2013
January 02, 2013, 05:00 AM By Heather Murtagh Daily Journal Staff

Joshua Bernard Lam decided 2013 was too good to miss.

He was due Jan. 2 but instead was born at 12:39 a.m. Jan. 1, making Lam the first baby born in San Mateo County this year. Thankfully, his parents hadn’t made any other plans for ringing in the New Year.

Parents Jenny Yeh, 38, and Loren Lam, 45, had a lot of waiting to do before welcoming their new, very quiet bundle of joy. Yeh’s water broke at 6:30 a.m. Monday, Dec. 31. The Palo Alto family checked into the Mills-Peninsula Medical Center in Burlingame by 8 a.m. That’s when the waiting began.

Labor was induced for the couple and even that took some time. She started really pushing at 9:15 p.m. Joshua, the couple’s first, was 7 pounds 14 ounces and 20.5 inches in length. The couple wanted to use a name from the bible.

Lam and Yeh — a hardware engineer and patent attorney, respectively — have known each other about 12 years and have been married four. They plan to take the little one home later this week. There were lots of worries at first but now that Joshua is born they’re both pretty calm, they said.

In Redwood City, the Clayton family from Menlo Park welcomed their third boy, James Owen, at 1:29 a.m. New Year’s Day.

Diana and Bill Clayton were expecting the little one Dec. 28, the due date. Instead, while celebrating New Year’s Eve at home Monday night, Diana Clayton realized it was time. The family arrived at the Kaiser Permanente Redwood City 30 minutes before the baby, who is doing well, was born.

At 1:31 a.m., baby Raphael Ong was born at Lucile Packard Hospital in Palo Alto. She weighed 8 pounds, 4 ounces, according to a hospital spokesman.

In the East Bay, two babies were born at exactly midnight at the Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Berkeley and the Sutter Delta Medical Center in Antioch, according to Bay City News.

What do you think of Cuba and the United States re-establishing diplomatic ties?

It's about time
We'll see how it goes
Makes sense
Don't like it
I guess the Cold War is over
Does this mean Cuban cigars will be cheaper now?
