LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Some Louisville parents got something extra in their stockings this year: bundles of joy.

Babies born at Baptist Health were placed in their very own Christmas stockings. The stockings were purchased from fund's from the hospital's auxiliary.

For one new mother, her baby came right on time.

"We were hoping the he'd hold off a little bit, you know, just to get the holidays over with," said Sarah Johnson, "but I'm happy that he came on his due date, and he's healthy.

Little Levi was born just after midnight on Christmas Eve.

The baby stocking tradition started at Baptist Health 19 years ago.
