...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.
