CLEAR SPRING - Clear Spring Elementary School student Douglas Morgan likes to point out that he was born on New Year's Day 10 years ago.
"He's pretty proud of that," said his mother, Kimberly Morgan.
Douglas was born at Washington County Hospital early on Jan. 1, 1992.
Each year, The Herald-Mail features the first child born on New Year's Day in the Tri-State area. Douglas was one of those babies.
Weighing in at 8 pounds, 6 ounces, Douglas was delivered 10 days earlier than expected, his mother said.
Kimberly Morgan, then 26, and her husband Keith Morgan, were cleaning up following a small New Year's Eve gathering at her Clear Spring home when she realized her baby was coming.
"It was just after midnight, I went to take a shower and my water broke," she said.
Douglas Alan Morgan was born at 3:47 a.m.
