The New New Englander...

...is the Littlest Lowellian.

I was quite surprised last night when I woke up around 2:00 a.m. and rolled over to check my phone for no particular reason. There were two yet-unread text messages, which surprised me but didn't seem completely unreasonable, as we still had people at some of the ranges.

Both, however, were from my sister-in-law Morea. The first informed me that I had just become a father, and the second was a picture of Lillian Seyla Page, who came into the world at 1:04 a.m. on Tuesday, 01 MAR at Tufts Medical Center, nee Tufts New England Medical Center. She came in tipping the scales at a wee 2 lbs, 9 oz, but she's doing great and she's been breathing on her own for quite a while now.

Thankfully, the new enlightened paternity leave policy will allow me visitation rights to my Bundle of Joy, 1 ea.

Congratulations, and thanks for taking the time out to let us all know the good news. She's an impatient one, isn't she! Best wishes for Ratriey and the proud father, and for Lillian.
