The year's first baby in Johnson City was a boy born at 5:01 a.m. Sunday at Johnson City Medical Center. Kyson Rabon Britt, the son of Aubrey Rabon and Dustin Britt of Johnson City, weighed 6 pounds, 3 ounces and was 20 inches long. His mother, Aubrey, said Kyson's New Year's birth was a surprise.
"He was three weeks early, so I didn't expect this to be happening yet," Aubrey said. "I just wanted him to hold off so he wouldn't be born on his brother's birthday."
Kyson's older brother, Devon Rabon, turned 7 on New Year's Eve.
"He's very small," Devon said of his brand-new brother.
"Maybe when he's 4 years old, I'll let him play with this," he said, holding up a toy sword.
