Sparrow welcomes 2014 New Year's baby

Kay and Andy McLane of Jackson rang in the New Year with the birth of their daughter, the first Sparrow baby of 2014.

Lily Zofia McLane was born at 1 a.m. and weighed in at 7 pounds 1 ounce. She was delivered by James Barton, M.D., resident Ryan Luellwitz, D.O., nurses Heidi Gyomory and Erin Gilbert-Eyres, anesthesiologist Gertrude Hawkins, D.O., and nurse anesthetist Laurie Schively.

Lily is Kay and Andy's first child and they were not expecting her to be the New Year's baby. Dad said: "Everybody is doing well and we're just excited to have her."

As Sparrow's 2014 New Year's Baby, Lily and her parents will receive an infant car seat along with a teddy bear and gifts from Sparrow.
