Austin welcomes year's first baby

Austin American-Statesman (Internet / Print) 01/02/06 http://www.statesman.com/search/content/news/stories/local/01/2Roundup.html Elias and Irma Lopez rang in the new year with Austin's first 2006 baby. At 12:01 a.m., Irma Lopez gave birth to Jaziel Lopez, a 9-pound, 5-ounce boy. Nurses at Austin Women's Hospital, where he was born, immediately called around town and determined that Jaziel was the first child born this year in Austin. He is the couple's third child. The other two, 10-year old Jonathan and 5-year-old Jacqueline, were born in Corpus Christi. "They thought they were going to have their first baby in Austin," said Maria Garcia, a hospital worker helping translate for the family, "not have the first baby in Austin."
