"I didn`t think it would happen because I wasn`t due until the 10th," said mother Ashley Mickelsen.
Ashley and Adam Mickelsen already have a daughter, Kennedy, whose birthday is on January 31. They now have a birthday to celebrate at the beginning and end of the month.
"It`s exciting! Kennedy is happy to be a big sister and I guess we know what we`re doing with girls," said Ashley.
Kambree came in at seven pounds, one ounce at 1:39 p.m. The family is looking forward to future celebrations every New Year`s Day.
"It going to be good for her, I mean she`s going to have a really awesome birthday every year," said Adam.
The Mickelsens are from Kenmare. They traveled all the way to St. Alexius Hospital because of the great relationship Ashley had with her doctor.
"We`ve been down here for the last week and a half, so we missed Christmas. So as soon as we get home, we`ll celebrate Christmas and go on from there," said Adam.
Once Ashley and baby Kambree are released from the hospital, they plan to head back home.
Sanford Hospital`s first baby of the year came about half an hour later.
