New Year's Baby

A Lynn Haven mother spent New Year’s Day recuperating and celebrating the birth of her new son.

Dede Rowan and her husband Joe are the proud parents of Hudson Rowan, who was the first baby to be born in Panama City/Bay County in 2005. His big brother Coleman is also pretty excited.

Hudson weighs just over six pounds. He was born at early Saturday morning.

His arrival was quite a surprise because he wasn't due to be born for another three weeks.
