Rebecca Bruner was pretty tired Tuesday morning, but that wasn't a surprise.
She'd spent most of the night giving birth to her first child.
Miranda Ray Potter was born at 6:41 a.m. Tuesday, making her the first child delivered in 2007 at the Women's Center at Integris Baptist Regional Health Center in Miami.
She is also the daughter of John Potter.
The baby's middle name is in honor of her mother's father.
“My first thought when I saw my daughter was, She has hair,' Bruner said. “Neither her father nor I expected her to have hair.
Miranda Potter was scheduled to be born Jan. 4, arriving two days early to make her the first baby of the year.
“It's funny, Carla May, nursing director of the Women's Center, said. “We had no deliveries Monday and then had two within 20 minutes of each other Tuesday. The second baby was born right at 7 a.m.
She weighed 6 pounds and was 18 3/4 inches long when she was born.
She was delivered by Dr. Tammie Koehler.
Bruner is a manager at Wendy's and will return to work as soon as possible.
“I know how to take care of children, she said. “I'm looking forward to it.
