Riley Root's first photo

Riley Jeanne Root took 24 hours to make an appearance, but all six pounds twelve ounces of her was received with great joy by her parents Leah (Viands) and Brian Root on Thursday, January 7, at 10:20 a.m. in Prentice Women's Hospital. 

Mother and baby, who is 19.5 inches long, are doing well. 

Dad, an 11-year resident in Wicker Park, said with much delight about the good health of both his ladies, "Happy New Year!" 

Both have served on the Wicker Park Committee Board, Leah having just completed a second term as president.

Mom is Account Director for Time Magazine and Dad is the Vice President/General Manager of the Central Region for a Eco-site, a start-up company.
