More Than 11,000 Babies Born in North Dakota in 2012

Posted: Updated:

Meeting the New Year's baby is an annual tradition that can warm your heart in January, but we wanted to know some other top trends for these little treasures born in 2012.

Meet Zoey Zastoupil.

She's one of the first babies born in 2013.

"I think it's something kind of fun, it won't be her identity, but I mean it's something fun to celebrate, it's her special day." says Zoey's mom, Jamie Zastoupil.

"I was looking for the tax break, but the New Year's baby will work!" says Zoey's dad, Neil Zastoupil.

If she had been born in 2012, she would join a baby boom in the state of North Dakota.

After a drop in birth numbers, the baby trend is going back up.

"We have seen an increase in deliveries this last year, we've been busy." says Paulette Jorgenson/Sanford Nurse.

According to Carmell Barth, with the North Dakota Health Department Division of Vital Records, as of last week we had more than 11,000 births recorded in North Dakota for 2012.

1988 was the last time there were more than 11,000 births occurring in ND.

"We are seeing bigger babies, we've had 10 and 11 pound babies, which is a good sized baby...We're seeing a lot of names that can be boy and girl, we're seeing Bentley, Grace and Greysens, Payton..." says Paulette Jorgenson/Sanford Nurse.

As for the most popular names, that's still in the works.

In 2011-- It was Mason, Carter and Jacob for boys, and Ava, Olivia and Emma for girls.

But Zoey is getting some notoriety already for 2013.

The 2012 most popular baby names in North Dakota will be available mid-February.

At St. Alexius, they have broken records in 2011 and again in 2012...

With more than 1520-- births reported as of now for the past year.

In January of 2012--St. Alexius delivered a set of triplets and six sets of twins.

In May of 2012--- they set an all time hospital record for one month: 147 babies.

 Kambree Mickelsen is the first New Year's baby born in Bismarck.

Kambree was welcomed into the world at St. Alexius, weighing seven pounds one ounce, and 19 3/4 inches.

She was born at 1:39 p.m, New Year's Day.
