The Brittons initially received a due date of Oct. 14 and Britton was determined he wasn't going to miss the birth of his first child.

Kudos to Susan Reimer for her column exploring the difficulties experienced by mothers traveling alone with babies and toddlers ("Babies on a plane: Can the rest of the flying public cut mom some slack?" April 4). As a grandmother of five, I have witnessed first-hand the tribulations moms with young children endure whenever I travel with my daughter and daughter-in-law. One must be physically fit, mentally strong and spiritually sound to juggle the incredibly cumbersome equipment, deal with a baby whose ears are popping and entertain restless toddlers unaccustomed to being confined in tight quarters - all while enduring the withering looks of other passengers.

Our community has much to celebrate. Many congratulations and much merriment in the Forge during the last month of one of our nicest summers on record. And it was fantastic weather for a wedding. Just ask Harrison Levy and Sara Mosgin , new residents of Brandon Road. On Aug. 23 they promised to love, honor and live happily ever after in good times, like a picnic lunch by a beautiful lake, and challenging times, such as a heart-pumping, breath-catching 3-mile hike up a Colorado mountainside (which is how Harrison proposed)

While I am in complete agreement with Allen St. Pierre of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws as to the desirability of reducing penalties for marijuana possession, I take issue with his physics ("Advocates for legal marijuana take first steps," March 20). He states that "the fulcrum on all of this [liberalization of marijuana laws] rests on the baby boomers. " I would say, more accurately, that the baby boomers are the fulcrum. We remember, of course, that a fulcrum is a stationary pivot point upon which a lever rests, and against which it exerts force to create movement.

MY BABY DIED a month ago today. He was nine days old. Collin Edward Comey was killed by a preventable infection. I am sharing our tragedy so other mothers' babies might be saved.Our family had been happily anticipating the birth of Collin for months. Our two daughters, ages 7 and 5, were born 18 months apart and are great friends. Our first son and Collin were born 16 months apart and we had anticipated that they would become "buddies."For much of this year, our daughters were very involved in the planning for Collin's birth.

I initially loved The Sun's story about the baby fox rescue, although it's ironic the firefighters were the ones who ended up helping, being unable to get hold of people and agencies who are supposed to be there. But I was horrified by how it all ended ("Rescued fox pup put down for fear of rabies," May 5). What on earth is a health agency doing taking over an animal matter? Worse yet, the Harford County agency decided to put the animal to sleep, claiming they needed to test for rabies - even while admitting the fox hadn't bitten or scratched anybody.

Summertime is a prime season for babies — for anticipating them, having them or just watching them go about their napping, toddling and drooling business. Maybe we just see more babies this time of year, perspiring in their jogging strollers with their fitness-oriented parents, sitting in laps on lawns with their melting snowballs, or being held aloft in front of frighteningly toothy giraffes at the zoo. Whatever the reason, you can't escape the abundance of babies in the summer, and it's delightful because these mini-humans remind us that life is a journey that is unpredictable, joyful and sometimes just plain gross.

Swimmers describe the race as a snarling beast that will rob them of the energy needed for other endeavors. The greatest of all time, Michael Phelps, says he'll never swim it again. Too painful. You'll hear no such talk, however, from Bel Air native Chase Kalisz. For the 20-year-old Kalisz, the 400-meter individual medley is "my baby. " Phelps will garner most of the attention Friday as he swims the 100-meter butterfly, his marquee race of the Phillips 66 National Championships.

Firefighters rescued two baby raccoons from a fire in a Waverly home Thursday morning, officials said.

Firefighters called Animal Control to take custody of the raccoons for treatment.

OAKLAND, CALIF. - Any question as to whether Oakland Athletics fans had forgotten about Manny Machado's bat toss and confrontation with A's third baseman Josh Donaldson last month were answered quickly Friday night in the Orioles' series opener here.  Oakland fans booed Machado every opportunity they got from pregame introductions to the first time he ran out to his position at third base in the bottom of the first inning. When Machado threw out Yoenis Cespedes to end the bottom of the third, the crowd booed from the time he fielded the ball all the way into the dugout.

Eight months and one week. That's how long it took my daughter, Sarla, to get her first tooth. And the teething started the day we took a seven-hour flight across the pond to Europe. A first for her, a first for me, just one of several new firsts for my family of three, which inevitably made for a memorable trip. In June, my husband and I took our daughter to Denmark, home of Hans Christian Andersen and his famous fairy tales, amusement parks, hot dog buns with holes in them and cold Carlsberg beer and bicycles wherever you go. We knew early on in parenthood that we'd be those brave parents that would board planes, ride trains, go on long car rides, refusing to stay in the confinements of our home.

More than 6 million children die annually around the globe from largely preventable problems such as diarrhea and pneumonia, but a $500 million, five-year effort led by the Baltimore-based nonprofit Jhpiego aims to put a big dent in those statistics. The money is the second-largest award the Johns Hopkins University affiliate has ever managed and is the flagship grant this year from the U.S. Agency for International Development, the nation's foreign aid bureau that spends $1.5 billion annually to prevent mother and baby deaths in poor countries.

Hip dysplasia may not be obvious in newborns, but the disorder may already be affecting babies' development. And the sooner parents and caregivers get an evaluation and treatment, the easier the fix, according to Dr. Andrew Abramowitz, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center who trained in pediatric orthopedics. What is pediatric hip dysplasia and how common is it? Hip dysplasia (developmental dysplasia of the hip or DDH) is a spectrum of abnormalities of the ball and socket joint of the hip. It occurs in one in every 1,000 live births.
