The first baby of the new year in Lincoln came a little earlier than his family expected.  Cy Henry was born 6 weeks early.

What the family thought would be a Valentine's day baby ended up being the first baby to be born in Lincoln in 2013.

Aaron Fickenscher described his new son as "incredible."

The new dad touched his baby for the first time through his incubator.  Cy Henry was born a month and a half early.

His mom had liver complications right as the ball dropped and the new year started.  The evening ended with a baby boy making a dramatic entrance into the new year at 3:49 a.m.

"How do you beat that?" Fickenscher said the events of the festive day could never be topped. 

For Aaron, he said this whole being a dad think is something that will take some serious getting used to.

"I never thought of myself as a dad. My dad's a dad, my brother's a dad, you just hope you don't screw it up."

After rushing to the emergency room and having a baby come weeks early, even though their baby only weighs a little more than 4 pounds, he's just glad his new baby boy is healthy.

"He's perfect. Ten fingers, ten toes, two eyes. He's looking good."

Aaron said he and his wife, Stephanie, had a New Years Eve they will never forget.

"It's gonna be one to remember.  Didn't think last night around 8 or 9 o'clock that we'd be sitting here as a dad.  Never fathomed."

The baby's mom, Stephanie, is doing well.  She will be in the hospital for about four days.  And as for Baby Cy Henry, how long he will be in the hospital is up in the air, but even early, he is still a healthy and handsome little man.
