New year, new baby


Lucas David Haynes was the first baby to ring in the New Year at Mercy Tiffin Hospital. He was delivered Jan. 1 by Dr. Jennifer Glance and weighed 9 pounds, 9 ounces and was 22 inches long at birth. He is shown here with his parents, Michael and Sarah Haynes of McCutchenville.

As the year’s first child born at Mercy, Lucas was given a child’s Amish hand-crafted oak rocker from the hospital.
