Birth The Fritz Bartels family of Vermillion recently welcomed its newest member when their daughter, Kitty, gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Mary Lucia DiMartino. Kitty and her husband, David DiMartino, live in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington, DC.
Mary Lucia arrived during the early morning hours of May 15 and weighed an even eight pounds at birth. Her tiny frame extended to 20 and 1/2 inches. Mary missed sharing a birthday with her Aunt Lynn Bartels of Denver by a mere 99 minutes.
However, she does share a birthday with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Kitty's former employer, who stopped by Georgetown Hospital to celebrate the birthday and to provide Mary with her first foreign policy briefing. Mom, Dad, and Mary Lucia are doing well.
