Congratulations to the family of Andrew James Aquilia, who was born shortly after the stroke of the new year at 12:24 a.m. in Phelps Memorial Hospital. 

Mother Allison Emmett was actually scheduled for a C-section much later into January, on the 21st in White Plains Hospital. When she found herself going into early labor she came to Phelps, much closer to her home in Tarrytown.

Phelps is happy to introduce their first baby of 2014. 

Andrew James Aquilia, born to Emmett and father Joe Aquilia, measured 18 inches and 6 lb. 5 oz. He joins three-year-old brother Jacob.

Emmett reports she is glad everything went well and is pleased to be at Phelps.

The first baby reported to be born in the county was Andrew Okang, born to Resby Okang at 12:09 a.m. at St. John's Riverside Hospital. Read more on LoHud.com here.

Yes! I've updated and did not mean to overlook the real first baby of county. This baby is first of Phelps, which is good too :)
