The first Billings baby born in 2013 arrived 13 days early.

Olivia Eden Renshaw was born at 9:27 a.m. on Tuesday at St. Vincent Healthcare to Jennifer and Adam Renshaw of Billings.

Jennifer, a nurse who works down the hall in St. Vincent’s neonatal intensive care unit, said her daughter was born after only three hours of labor. Olivia weighed in at 7 pounds 3 ounces and is 18.75 inches long.

The couple said they weren’t thinking about having a New Year’s Day baby. “It didn’t even cross my mind,” Jennifer said, cradling Olivia in her arms.

The couple had a late night on New Year’s Eve and didn’t get home from a church party until 2 a.m. They got about four hours of sleep before Jennifer went into labor.

To celebrate Olivia New Year’s Day’s arrival, the hospital’s nurses presented the couple with a large gift basket and an embroidered blanket.

Olivia is the couple’s second child. She has a 3-year-old brother, Asher, who also was born 13 days early, said Adam.

When Asher saw his baby sister, he wanted to know if she had “pooped her diaper yet,” Adam said.

Jennifer said told her son, “she will eventually; not yet.”
