Morton couple’s daughter debuts as New Year’s baby

The first baby to be born here this year arrived a day late, but she was ahead of schedule for her parents.

Daisy Ann Marie Martinez weighed 7 pounds and 15 ounces and was 18 inches long when she was delivered at 5:56 p.m. Thursday at Covenant Hospital Levelland.

Her father, Raymond Martinez of Morton, was already working at Covenant when Michelle Williams realized it was time to go to the hospital.

Her father-in-law drove her to Levelland and she was admitted to the hospital after 7 p.m. Wednesday.

‘She was having real good contractions’ and the doctor decided to induce labor, Martinez said.
