Shelby County's first baby of 2019

Lydia Purvis may or may not have a future in soccer.

Time will tell for the newborn, but regardless of what interests she discovers in the future, first-time parents Ben and Tiera Purvis are happy she’s doing well.

Lydia was the first baby born at MHP Medical Center this year. Weighing seven pounds, 13 ounces and measuring 21 inches, she arrived at 7:57 p.m. on New Year’s Day.
