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.

Téa/Thea/Theia is the goddess of sight, shining light and the clear blue sky and the creator of the sun, moon and stars. There is also a bit about her brother being her husband, but, in the words of Billy Wilder at the end of Some Like It Hot "Nobody's Perfect," eh?

Here is a fun photo slideshow for people who dig babies!
