FORT MYERS, Fla. - After struggling for months to have a baby, a Fort Myers family is blessed with a New Year's Day miracle.
     
Landon Christopher Keith Scott is the first baby of the new year in Southwest Florida.  He weighed 8 pounds, 10 ounces when he was born at 1:39 in the morning.

Landon is the first child for proud parents Nicole Bray and Christopher Scott.

"He is great. He is quiet. He doesn't cry," Bray said.

"The last couple of days I've been a wreck. She's been a trooper. I'm just happy he is healthy," Scott said.

Bray says the labor was difficult..but that it was worth it.

Landon's parents have been together for six years, and plan on getting married next spring.  But for now, they're excited to spend as much time as they can with their new baby boy.
