First Baby of 2019 Born in Huntington


 If there’s a better way to ring in the New Year, new parents Kathryn and Nathan Boone  wouldn’t know it. 

“We watched the ball drop from here as I was pushing,” Kathryn said. “It was a fast 45 minutes of trying to get the doctor here and finally when the doctor was here it was like 15 minutes until midnight and so we kind of knew then.”

And into the world came Emma Elizabeth Boone at 12:01 a.m., January 1, 2019, at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Huntington, WV. 

“Just to have this little life that we created in our arms instead of rumbling around in your tummy for so long, it’s a miracle and a blessing,” Nathan said. 

Hugging all five pounds, nine ounces, of her tightly, mom and dad couldn’t be more elated. 

“It didn’t matter what to us what day she was born as long as she was healthy and happy,” Nathan said.
