She is the fourth daughter for Esbeide Gutierrez, 35, and her husband, Daniel Hernandez, 31.

Gutierrez arrived at the hospital at 1 p.m. Dec. 31 for an induced labor. She said she was induced in an effort to avoid complications that happened with the birth of her fourth child, who was born in an emergency Caesarean section operation.

Hernandez, asked about the significance of having a New Year's Day baby, was succinct: "I feel good," he said, standing over the bassinet and gazing on his swaddled daughter.

Isabel, while awake and yawning, had no comment.

In McHenry County, the "first baby" title belongs to Christopher Canache. He was born at 12:10 a.m. at Centegra Hospital in Woodstock, to Daniela and Pedro Canache of Huntley.
