New Year's Baby Born at Stroke of Midnight!

At the stroke of midnight, while many were ringing in 2012, some proud Texoma parents welcomed in a new baby! The first baby of the New Year born at United Regional was welcomed into this world with love and lots of gifts.

The baby was a girl born to parents Rudy and Alicia Martinez from Vernon and both say they never imagined they'd be the ones holding the City of Wichita Falls' first baby.

Coming in at 5 pounds 9 ounces Kaezyn Martinez is the newest addition to the family.

"We were actually just waiting for the doctor mostly," said mom Alicia Martinez. "We didn't really plan on it, I guess it just kind of happened."

She was born right at midnight and is already becoming her own person.

"She's doing really good, she's healthy and already has an attitude"

Kaezyn was not only greeted with her family, but an array of gifts ranging from a car seat to diapers and a teddy bear.

"It's awesome. It's nice it will help a lot," said father Rudy Martinez.

The baby was expected to be delivered on January 14 but little Kaezyn didn't want
to stay in. She now joins two older sisters and could even be a big sister in the near future.

"We want one more," said Alicia. "It's probably going to be another girl, but that's OK.

Holiday births run in the family. Mom Alicia was born on Christmas Day.

The gifts parents walked away with for New Year's Baby Kaezyn were provided by United Regional and the Auxiliary Gift Shop.
