Early arrival makes her first in Cole County

The county's first baby of year born at St. Mary's Health Center

January 2nd, 2011 in News

Malshon Ball and Alexzondriea Walker are the parents of Juh'stiz Ball, who was born at 10:40 a.m. Saturday at St Mary's Medical Center in Jefferson City.

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.
