Our granddaughter, Marisa Alegria da Silva, arrived on planet Earth in New York City on Thursday, May 28th at 1:56 PM Eastern Standard Time, weighing 8 pounds 5, long and lean and hairy and impeccably beautiful in all respects. Mother and child are both in good health, save for a minor fever that showed up at the last possible second, controlled easily by antibiotics.
Terri Luanna was in labor for 36 hours, beating my record by 8 hours. She's exhausted but exceedingly happy....as is everyone here, especially her husband Heron.
