We still don't know the name of the first baby born in Lubbock in the new year, but neither does the mom.
Kendra Draughan hasn't picked a name for her baby girl yet. She wants it to be perfect. Right now she's leaning toward Candace or Jasmine.
Update Jan. 3: She decided on Candace.
Her mom says she's not worried about having the first baby of the year, she just wanted a healthy baby.
Whatever her name turns out to be, she's a healthy baby girl, 6 pounds, 14 ounces, 19 inches long.
She was born just after midnight at University Medical Center.
The newborn already has one firmly-established personality trait - she was stubborn, and did not want to come out before the new year.
"I was in labor for a couple of days," Kendra Draughan said. "She actually wanted to wait and I was like 'girl you need to come out.'"
The newborn girl has an older brother who was almost a Leap Year baby.
