Happy New Year to everyone in Rockford, but the happiest new year to the families who welcomed Rockford's first babies of 2019.

While I'm not sure having a January 1 will always be exciting for these little ones, their parents clearly had a monumental celebration this year.

According to Eyewitness News, we had two early risers on January 1, Quetzaly and Elliot, born at 2:18 and 2:19 respectively.

Quetzaly was born at Swedish American, while Elliot was born at Mercyhealth.

They are clearly adorable and they're totally on board with 2019 being the best year yet.
