First Baby Of The New Year

In Longview, the first baby of 2007 was Lilly Bloodworth, born at 2:48 Monday morning at Good Shepherd Medical Center. Weighing in at just four pounds, five ounces, Mom Tonya says Lilly came more than a month early--a sure sign she was meant to be a New Year's baby.  

Tonya Matthis, Lilly's mother, says, "It's great, you don't expect it to be you, you know, I couldn't believe it when they told, I didn't know till just a few minutes ago that I was the first one in the whole town of Longview and they told me that I was so I guess that's pretty neat."
