More than 2,000 babies are born each year at The Birthplace at Lowell General Hospital, but only one can be the first. Izabela Grace Casara Cruz was born at 2:35 a.m. New Year’s Day to parents Jean Casara and Zuleisly Cruz of Lowell. Izabela arrived a day early, her parents say, but she was ready, needing just a little bit of Mom’s help to come into the world. She is 20½ inches long and weighs 8 pounds, 1 ounce.
