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."
