January 4, 2013 · 5:14 PM
A baby girl from Sammamish, Demsie Lynn Heady, was the first baby born at Overlake Hospital in 2013. She is the daughter of Katherine (Katie) and Austin Heady.
Demsie was born at 1:54 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 1 and weighed 8 lbs, 10 oz. She has a big sister, Emerson, 5.
Demsie was born via a scheduled induction set for Tuesday morning and shares a birthday with her grandmother, another New Year’s baby.
“It’s really cool she gets to share her birthday with her grandma,” Katherine Heady said.
Heady said their family and staff rang in the new year wearing party hats and using noise makers. As the first baby born at Overlake this year, Demsie and family were the recipients of a special New Year’s baby basket, which included items such as a new breast pump, blankets, baby wipes and clothes.
“Everyone that helped us out was awesome,” Heady said.
Mother and baby are doing fine, and both went home on Wednesday.
