THE BRONX - One of the borough's first babies of 2013 made his grand entrance at Lincoln Hospital early Tuesday morning.

Joel Javier Sanchez was born at 3:17 a.m., weighing 5 pounds 17 ounces. The New York Boriquen Lion's Club made a visit to the family's room today, giving them gifts, diapers and clothes.

Joel was not the first baby born in The Bronx this year, though. That honor belongs to at least one other child born earlier at Montefiore Medical Center.
