Fort Smith’s First Baby of 2012

January 3, 2012

Boedi Babe was the first baby born in

2012 at St. Edward Mercy. He came into the

world at 11:21 am on January 1, weighing

8 pounds, 11 ounces. Mom and baby are

doing fine.

Boedi Babe wasn’t due until January 11, 2012 but his mom always liked the idea of a New Year’s Day baby.  She got her wish when her third child made his appearance at 11:21 am on January 1, 2012.  Jones started feeling contractions on New Year’s Eve and by New Year’s day morning it was time to get to the hospital.  Along the way, the parents-to-be got to use the ultimate excuse when they were pulled over by a police officer.  Yes, officer ­– she really is having a baby!
