Hispanic baby is Nashville's first in 2004
"Her parents, who do not speak English and spoke through an interpreter, said they first learned they had the first baby of 2004 from a nurse and later from a relative who called them."
"Asked if their goal was to have the first baby of the new year, the parents laughed and said their baby had been born 11 days early."
"'It's very special to have the first baby, but we didn't try to do that,' Nancy Perez said."
"The father, Jesus Jiminez, said he was just happy that the baby, their first child, was healthy. Jiminez, a restaurant worker, moved to Nashville from Mexico about four years ago, and Perez, a homemaker, moved here about three years ago."
