Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in Rockville, Md., delivered its first baby of 2011 at 12:01 a.m.

The girl weighed 9 pounds and 5 ounces, and she and her mother are doing well.

As the hospital's first delivery of the year, the baby and her family received a basket of gifts donated or made by nurses, including towels, blankets, hats, booties and other baby needs.

About 5,000 babies were delivered at the hospital in 2010.
