SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Shreveport's first baby of the new year has company: A twin sister born 1 minute later. 

Sarah Campbell was born at 12:37 a.m. at University Health, weighing 4 pounds, 10 ounces, 16.5 inches long. Her slightly younger sister, Saria, arrived at 12:38 a.m., weighing 5 pounds, 10 ounces, 18.5 inches long. 

The identical twins join 4 older siblings, one of whom was also born on New Year's Day, 7 years ago. That daughter was the second baby born in Shreveport in 2008. 

Mom Sharonica Campbell says a scratch on one of the girl's noses helps her tell them apart right now, but she plans to paint their toenails different colors to make sure there are no mix-ups moving forward. 

Campbell says twins run in her family.
