New Year's Baby

The new year means lots of new love for one Montgomery couple. They spent their New Year's welcoming in a new member of their family.

Lott Padgett Putnam is the first baby born in the capital city in 2005.

He came into the world at 1:43 this morning at Baptist East.

Proud parents  Kelly and Midge say their son being the new year's baby caught them a little off guard.

"he was due on the 29th and he didn't come on the 29th. So we were scheduled to be induced sunday, the 2nd and hopefully have him born on hte third. When we started having labor pains last night, it was completely a surprise," the proud new mom says.

Little Lott weighs in at 6 pounds, 13 ounces. He is the Putnam's first, and they call him their "miracle."
