1st Baby of the New Year

New baby boy kicks off long-awaited New Year

Just 13 minutes into the highly anticipated New Year, Baptist Health Hardin’s first baby of 2021 entered the world and made Jaeda VanDeVenter a mom for the first time.

Kyree James Harrison, born at 12:13 a.m. on New Year’s Day, weighed seven pounds, nine ounces and is 21 inches long.

Baptist Health Hardin gave the weary parents a gift basket commemorating the first baby of the new year, prepared by the Baptist Health Hardin Auxiliary Gift Shop.
