Letters From the Editor

Seven Pounds, One-and-a-Half Ounces

Anna Blakney Sutton, friend, artist, illustrator for The Morning News, and now: Mom. We are excited beyond belief to introduce her daughter Iris, born today, March 1, 2003, at 5:37 a.m. Many, many congratulations to her and beaming father Jack Featherly on such a beautiful addition to their already beautiful life.

Initial reviews of the child include ‘precious,’ ‘gorgeous,’ and ‘the best baby ever.’ This reporter can verify these reviews and also state that Iris’s fingers are notably long – a sure sign the child will be just like her parents: lovely, creative, and remarkably tall and thin. But, for now, short and just totally cute. Which is really just a short Anna and Jack.

Hello Iris!

Anna has already outfitted Iris with a vast assortment of handmade gear (all made by Anna, of course), including a rumored pair of knitted baby booties with duck-shaped buttons that we are dying – yes, dying – to see. But the spring wardrobe’s not out yet. So we shall wait.

And, in waiting, delighting in every moment.
