Charlestown couple welcomes first Clark County baby of 2014

JEFFERSONVILLE — Jared and Kelly Kempton, Charlestown, welcomed their newborn son Spencer in the Women's Care Place at Clark Memorial Hospital in Jeffersonville on Thursday morning. Spencer was born at 10:02 a.m. on New Year's Day, making him the first baby born at the hospital in the new year. The couple said they had a rough year in 2013. While they were driving across the country from New Mexico last April, they received a call that the house in Memphis that they were moving to was destroyed in a fire. "He's our good luck start to the new year," Kelly said. Spencer weighed seven pounds and nine ounces, and was 21.5 inches long. See related photos.
