A Star was Born this morning at 8:51 a.m. Ladies and Gentlemen, meet my new niece Leah Grace who came into the world happy and healthy and weighing-in at 5 pounds, 10 ounces. Even with the three-hour time difference between California and Massachusetts, I was getting up-to-the-minute reports on Leah's birth. How? My brother-in-law, Doug, was Twittering the whole experience from the moment he and my sister, Karen, entered the hospital to the moment Leah was born. The real activity began about 12 hours ago when Doug Tweeted, "Still waiting for a delivery room to open up. Apparently a big morning for having a baby." From then on, the updates came at increasingly rapid intervals ... almost like contractions. "Showtime!", he Tweeted, followed by "Med Staff has been great so far. We should all go out for Tequila, after!" and "Here we go ... next Tweet Leah will be here!" Minutes later, her photo was on Facebook. Isnt' she beautiful? Congratulations to my sister, Karen, Brother-in-Law Doug and Nephew Jackson ... and welcome to the world, Leah. As for the rest of the family, we're all a-Twitter!
