Twin Rivers Regional Medical Center (TRRMC) welcomed its first baby of 2013, Doc Brody, on Wednesday, January 2.

Dr. Nelson Perez, of Twin Rivers Women's Center, ushered the new baby boy into the world at 10:02 a.m. He is the son of Cassidy and Michael Turner, of Senath, Mo.

Baby Doc, whose original due date was January 6, weighed in a 6 pounds, 13 ounces and measured 19 inches long. He joins big brother, Michael, 4 and big sister, Tesla, 3.

Labor and delivery nurses Becky Mayberry and Sarah Whitenton, who assisted Cassidy, said "She was so sweet and excited to have the first baby of the New Year."

"I was so surprised, since he was born on January 2 there had not been a birth before us" Cas, who was also pleasantly surprised by the congratulatory gifts she received from TRRMC and presented by CEO, Ken James. The gifts contained a car seat, baby bathtub, baby monitor, thermometer, wipes, diapers, baby washes and lotions.

Michael shared they chose the name "Doc" for their newborn after watching an old Wyatt Earp movie with Doc Holliday.

"We thought it would be kind of neat since his mom, Cassidy, was named from the movie, 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.'"

The family said it was very grateful for the care and gifts they received from the staff at Twin Rivers Regional Medical Center.

I like it.....it's a name that will be remembered and one that only he will personalize...either good or bad....but I'd bet good, with parents who put thought into choosing a name to give him a head start on laying his own groundwork for his own personna.
