The first baby of the year has been born in Washington County. Washington County Hospital and Clinics Marketing Coordinator Carrie Garman says a baby was born this (yesterday) afternoon. She says some years, babies are born right on New Year’s Day but many years, the first one will be born later. Garman says the latest day there has ever been a New Year’s baby born is January 14th. That occurred in 2007. Congratulations to the parents of this year’s New Year’s baby.
