A baby girl born an hour and fifteen minutes after midnight is the official first 2013 baby of the Pine Belt.  Paizleigh Hope Pineda was born to Ashleigh Nicholson and Chase Pineda.

Paizleigh weighs 5 lbs. and 13 ounces. She was born at South Central Regional Medical Center at 1:15 New Years Day, and is Nicholson's first child.  The new mother says she couldn't be happier with her beautiful blessing.

Right down the road another baby girl was one of the first born in this new year.  Emily Grace Jordan, born to Gabe and Meghan Jordan took second place in Pine Belt.  Emily was due to be born on December 26th, but had a mind of her own.  Emily was born just in time for her father's birthday at 1:49 New Years Day at Forrest General Hospital. He says his first born is the perfect birthday gift.

"I couldn't ask for much better," said Jordan.
