Little Ella Joy Hiltzik, 2, is totally in love with her new baby sister. “Sometimes we have to be careful about how she expresses her love, because she loves hugging and squeezing,” said the girls’ father, Matthew Hiltzik, 33, the C.E.O. of Freud Communications, a strategic-communications firm he founded after departing as longtime head of corporate communications at Miramax. Mom, his wife of two and a half years, is Dana, 33, a speech therapist. Their long, slender Molly, who’s teasingly sleeping through some nights in the family’s Upper West Side two-bedroom, is named for Mr. Hiltzik’s great-grandfather Morris. “He used to say: ‘If you have $3 million, you want more. If you have three daughters, you know you have enough,’” Mr. Hiltzik said. “I’m on my way to appreciating what he’s saying.”
