David C. McPhie '98-'00 and Erin H. McPhie '98-'00 received an early graduation present this year.
On June 8 at 2:09 p.m.--while Neil L. Rudenstine and Amartya K. Sen were preparing to address Harvard's newest graduates--the couple was welcoming their first baby into the world.
The two seniors, who had hoped the delivery would fall between the end of finals and graduation, were surprised by the Commencement Day delivery.
"We thought we had it planned perfectly because there's all that time between graduation and the end of finals," the new mother said.
The two also knew their parents would be in Cambridge for the Commencement ceremonies.
"The whole time we joked what great timing it was with both sets of our parents in town," she added.
But when the baby--who has not yet been named--did not arrive on its early June due date the couple thought that their parents would have to leave without seeing their granddaughter.
But then nature took its course.
