DETROIT – The cutest new Detroiters born on Sunday were just handed a pretty cool birth date.

The Detroit Medical Center’s Hutzel Women’s Hospital and Sinai-Grace Hospital welcomed several newborn Detroiters on Sunday, March 13 -- or, better known as 313 Day, the date that shares Detroit’s area code.

To commemorate the doubly-special occasion, Pure Detroit helped dress the babies in appropriate gear for their first photographs, decking them out in Detroit-themed clothes and accessories.
