First Snellville Baby of New Year 2009

"Benjamin Lee Watkins, whose middle name is the same as his father's, grandfather's and great-grandfather's, was the first to arrive in 2009 at Emory Eastside Medical Center in Snellville."

For the Watkins, Ben actually came a day later than he was due, just missing the deadline for a 2008 tax write-off.

But his mother Heather said she didn't mind the late arrival, although it did come after some last-minute complications.

"He wasn't progressing and midnight passed and we were sad," she said with a laugh, cradling her infant as his photo was taken. "(But) a January baby is good. He feels like a movie star now."

The 8-pound, 15-ounce boy joins sisters Hope, 11, and Isabella, 4."
