EL PASO - The Borderland welcomed it's newest residents just after midnight.
Baby Armando Jr. and baby Noel were the El Paso's first new residents in 2011. Baby Noel was born by c-section just 15 seconds after midnight in a planned birth. Baby Armando Jr. came the natural way just before one Saturday morning. Both of their parents say there isn't a better way to start off the New Year.
"He's actually my fourth, and every time I have a baby I get nervous and when I actually have them it's an exciting thing. I can't explain it," Noel's mother, Monica Perez, said.
"I always thought I'd be happy. Yeah, I'm going to be a happy dad, you know, but once it does happen it's pretty much the only thing you think about," Armando Jr.'s father, Armando Bravo, said.
Both baby boys are healthy, and they are expected to go home very soon.
