Welcome the smallest MC POPPER (by birth, not interest) Téa Lauren Goble born 9.25.10 at 1:21pm - 6 lbs. 15oz., 20 inches.
The first thoughts posted here on baby Téa were my personal paranoias about princess-ness
- but so far she's been a sweet baby that has been keeping mommy
and daddy busy. We have already noticed that Téa's a HUGE Miles Davis fan. Any version of his song "All Blues"
- with the proper rhythmic bounce/swing/sway- can put her to sleep in UNDER 5 minutes!
For those folks wondering about the name, it is not tea like the drink, although her nickname is already Sweet Tea. It is Téa (Tay-ah) like the actress Téa Leoni
or author Téa Obrecht
with an é like the one in Reneé. We were inspired to use the name after we met a young and distant cousin Thea (Tay-ah) in Norway. We were just diggin' the Téa spelling more. Of course, we've now put Téa in a situation where she will spend most of her life teaching people how to make accents on US computers (FWIW for Mac/PC
, and iPhones
) and how to properly pronounce her name. We just hope she ends up liking it.
Here is a fun photo slideshow for people who dig babies!
