Congrats, Stevie!

The parents aren't considering "FTK" then?

Best wishes for unendless days of joy and happiness in hers, and your future.

....and some will seen unendless.   ;-)

Congratulations!

Lucy sounds good :p
Posted by: Schroedinger's Dog on Nov. 16 2010,18:56

Congratulations and best recovery to the mom!

Among my favorites would be:

Emily
Aurelia
Livia
Alicia
...

Anything with an "i" in it. Girls with an "i" in their name are always winners :)

Congrats!!

When my offspring was on the way, my wife insisted it was a girl... it wasn't.

Our two names were....

Kaylee Kiera
Rio Milan

Congratulations!
Posted by: Steviepinhead on Nov. 16 2010,20:27

Thanks all.  "Sophia Ellen" seems to have taken the lead in the minds of the parents (but, then, what do they know).  A very healthy, wriggling, wide-eyed, fist-and-finger munching, hungry, tiny-squeak emitting little munchkin.

Note the "i" in Sophia, at least!
Posted by: fnxtr on Nov. 16 2010,21:26

Congratulations, grampa pinhead!

You get to spoil her and then hand her back to the 'rents. :-)

Sophia Ellen ("Wisdom" and "The Bright One") is a beautiful name.

Edit: Ellen, cognate of Helen.

Make sure to keep the cats away from the little bundle.


Posted by: didymos on Nov. 16 2010,22:01

Congratulations.  I'll throw in my vote behind 'Sophia'.

Well, did she inherit the pinhead cranium or not?

Congratulations!
Posted by: Steviepinhead on Nov. 16 2010,23:07

Thanks for the additional good wishes!

The pinhead cranium is mostly a function of head-binding, under the supervision of the clan mothers.  That's a process that won't start immediately and tends to vary from generation to generation.

At the moment, she's far too beautiful for cultural modification!

Congratulations to mother and baby and grandparents.....and also the father. But as I have learned the father comes waaaaaaaaaaaaaay down the list.

Bitter? Me? Never!

Taking the piss out of myself? ....Perhaps!

Anyway, I am sure the F1 Pinheads will have a great time with the F2 Pinheadette. And the F0 Pinhead can have the great, vengeance filled joy of handing the F2 Pinheadette back to the F1 Pinheads with the immortal words:

"I'm sorry, your daughter appears to have filled her nappy. This is really, really, REALLY your problem. Enjoy!"

Congratulations again.

Louis

P.S. As for names. Why bother? They don't come when you call them. Just call her "Oi YOU!" for a few years until she's developed a bit more. What? WHAT? That's a perfectly legitimate parenting technique!

Congrats, Grandpa Pinhead!

Isiro has double the i mojo.

 

---------------------QUOTE-------------------
   When I talk to people about what makes us human, some people say it's our tears. Because we are the only ones who weep, only we can feel true sorrow.

When I hear this, I remember Isiro's face, her anguished eyes as she cried for Mikeno, how she screamed at the keepers with her teeth bared and pushed at the poles. How she dashed back to his body and dug her fingers into his chest as if the strength of her grip could bring him back.

There is sorrow without tears. Of course there is. - Vanessa Woods, Bonobo Handshake.

"Children", my mother used to tell me "are their grandparents' revenge".

Congratulations. I'm a bit disappointed nobody thought of a nice Irish girl's name like Gobnait* Concepta** or Sophie***




* Pronounced gub nit. Common in Co. Kerry.

** Pronounced Septa! C'meeyah an lookah de airse on dis fella!. Vulgar Common in North Dublin

*** Pronounced EwMyGawd Sewfy. Nawt, loik, common at allll? But Daddy droives a big Beemer? And always speaks in, loik, questions?

Posted by: J-Dog on Nov. 17 2010,08:29

Congratulations, and in keeping with the "i" is good theme, then congratulations for little Ichiro.
Posted by: ppb on Nov. 17 2010,08:59

Congratulations to you and the parents.

I'm not good at coming up with names.  Given the computer geek that I am, I would probably name her Ubuntu or something.
Posted by: Steviepinhead on Nov. 17 2010,12:44

Again, thanks for all the kind words!

Changing the odd nappy won't bother me all that much (though, to be sure, I'm glad not to have the frontline duty).  After raising three boys, I'll just be glad not to be fountained with pee during the changing...!

And I don't think Sophia is all that far from Sewfie, at all, at all...

Though I realize she won't be able to go skiing or climbing or frisbee-throwing with me for a few years, still, Sophia's impendency has challenged me to get back into shape over the summer and early fall.  Still, just "having" my first grandchild at 60 will be a lasting challenge to stay sharp physically, mentally (always a chore for Teh Pinhead), and technologically.

I'll be looking for you younger AtBCers to keep me on my toes!
Posted by: dvunkannon on Nov. 17 2010,13:27

Congratulations!

I tried to friend her on Facebook but couldn't find her. What's up with that?
Posted by: Steviepinhead on Nov. 17 2010,15:45

Heh.  Give her a day or three.

I haven't yet had a chance to work in typing instruction between feeding intervals (and other necessary maintenance)...

I guess that's OK.  As long as she knows how to find the area under a curve by the time she's five.

Yeah, that should be an integral part of preschool education, huh?
Posted by: Texas Teach on Nov. 17 2010,17:17

Congrats.  They are ridiculously cute when new, but I'm loving that my two girls are both speaking now.  My four year old asked me, very seriously, the other night: "Why is the moon in cartoons yellow, but my moon is white?"
Posted by: Dr.GH on Nov. 17 2010,21:25

Congratulation.  :D

Heartiest of congratulations to the whole clan!

Thanks again to the AtBC community!

Now to figure out how to do a screen capture -- the day will come when Sophia will get a kick out of the congrats and funny comments that accompanied her advent...!

It must have been something in the water?
Posted by: Steviepinhead on Nov. 23 2010,13:23

Oh noes!  Has Henry been following the aqua-follies over at the Talk Rational forum (aquatic ape wingnut Algis Kuliukas vs. a rabid band of aqua-skeptics)?

In any event, Sophia definitely does enjoy playing with her food.  Which is based upon water, but with natural nutrient additives...
Posted by: Henry J on Nov. 23 2010,13:38

Aquatic ape? Wasn't that a proposed hypothesis that turned out to not hold up after it was compared to the evidence?

awwww....too precious.  Love how she tries to wrap her tiny little fingers around your son's.  Also cute how he looks at her.  Miracle of birth...very sweet pics.

Basic biology needed here.

Although FTK's comment is quite sweet, and I now feel ashamed for taking a cheap shot at her.

Sorry, my bad.


ps: the video is über-sweet too.

Something that occurs billions of times a year is a 'miracle'?

While I wish happiness to all the pinheads, there is no miracle involved.

I suppose that would depend on what definition of "miracle" one happens to be using.

Well, I appreciate ftk's sentiment too.

But I agree that no miracles need be invoked.  Based on the date, my bet is an exuberant Valentine's celebration...

Yeah.  Algis Kuliukas is a failed Ph.D. candidate/wingnut who is one of the ten or so most fanatic proponents.  Having first followed Dave Hawkins to the Dawkins forum and various other venues, many of us from the old endless flood/young earth threads here settled in at Talk Rational (so, in part at least, it's a spinoff of here!).  We encountered Algis at the Dawkins' forum, and he is the same kind of persistent, knuckle-headed fount of endless tard and lulz that Davey was in his heyday.

And also a catalyst of a little nucleus of skeptics who poke fun at the poor fella, learn a little genetics, evolution, anatomy, paleontology, anthro, cladistics, and so forth on the side, mostly to have darts to hurl at our whackamole.

There's a couple of other mildly-amusing trolls there, too, including the latest incarnation of that guy from here (Paley's Ghost?) who claimed to be two guys, and another whacko who is quite confident that birds are descended from pterosaurs, whales from mosasaurs, and the like.

Not to mention Davey himself, who is still flailing away, tardistically.

Good times.
