On February 1, 2023, Sitara Diana Miller was born. Her arrival created a family of three for the Miller-Brown household. Rajiv Miller, the Lead Technician in River Dell High School’s tech department, was gracious enough to share some details about the recent addition to his family.
Sitara Diana Miller was 9 pounds 7 ounces when she was born at 8:43 PM in the Holy Name Hospital in Teaneck. With the chubbiest of cheeks, she is absolutely adorable. With her family fawning over her left and right, she has been showered with love since the moment she arrived.
Not only has she been receiving love from her parents, but Miller’s coworkers have shared their love for Sitara as well. Ms. Lisa Albanese, River Dell’s Technology-Data Systems Coordinator commented, “Whenever I ask about the baby, he lights up and smiles, showing me of Sitara‚Äôs latest progress and sharing photos. He has definitely embraced his new role as a dad with ease.”
Sitara has also shown significant improvement in mobility in her few months of existence. Mr. Miller said that she enjoys kicking the air with her chunky little legs. As soccer is one of Miller’s most enjoyed sports, he shared that he’s “psyched to teach her how to play soccer!” Perhaps she is getting an early start to her soccer career.
After conceiving Sitara, her mother Jasmine Brown, a reading specialist at The Child School on Roosevelt Island, has been recovering after the delivery. She’s been on maternity leave, taking a break from working at her school. Getting some sun in her daily routine has been helping with her postpartum recovery.
“The winter months were pretty tough because it was cold and the weather was really bad, so she couldn’t get out of the house too much. But with the last couple of weeks warming up and actually getting sunshine, she’s been able to take walks, get her nails done, and she’s been noticeably happier,” reflected Miller.
Regarding parenting, Miller and Brown have been mostly following their heart. “We didn’t read too many of the books. Our exposure to how we’re supposed to do things is pretty limited, so we’re definitely getting a lot of advice from our parents and cousins and whatnot. There’s a lot of winging it, doing what feels right, but honestly, I thought it’d be harder than it is. Not that it’s not hard. It’s a ton of work. It’s a massive change to our lives, but it’s more fun.”
