Juh’stiz Noelle may be a sprinter when she grows up. After five tries to come early, she made it 12 days before her due date — and two hours earlier than doctors predicted Saturday.
The first baby born at St. Mary’s Health Center, the long and hungry newborn met proud parents Alexzondriea Walker and Malshon Ball at 10:04 a.m. New Year’s Day.
“We joked about her being a New Year’s baby, but weren’t taking it seriously,” Ball said.
