TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- Andrew James Aquilia was expected to be born in late January, but the precocious infant arrived at Phelps Memorial Hospital Center in Tarrytown just after midnight on Wednesday, New Year's Day.

Mother Allison Emmett and father Joe Aquilia of Tarrytown had scheduled their son's birth via Caesarean section at White Plains Hospital on Jan. 21, but Baby Andrew pushed the day forward and the family moved the happy event to closer-to-home Phelps.

Andrew was the second baby born in Westchester in the New Year, arriving at 12:24 a.m. just 15 minutes after Andrew Okang was born at St. John's Riverside Hospital in Yonkers.

"I had trouble delivering my first son, so we were having the C-section at White Plains," Emmett said in a call from Phelps Thursday. "But this was a wonderful surprise. Everything is perfect."

Waiting at home for Andrew, who weighed in at 6 pounds, 5 ounces and 18 inches long, will be older brother Jacob, 3, whose birthday is on Sunday, Jan. 5.

"I guess December into January is going to be a busy time each year for us," Emmett said. "Jacob has been here visiting his new brother and Joe is doing fine. We're all very excited about (New Year's birth)."
