This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation.
When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

New fambly member! Yay!

My adorable niece Holly has given birth to her first daughter, Adia Joy Smith, 8 lbs. born at 4:43 am yesterday, 5/5/12. I waited until Holly and Cleavon posted on Facebook.

Adia is Swahili for gift, but she shall be called Itty Bitty Smitty by her grand-uncle until that name no longer applies. (Her parents are both tall, so I expect will outgrow Itty Bitty-ness in just a few years.)

Yay, new babies!

So cute! My favorite nickname for all newborns is "grub," since all they do for a while is eat, sleep, and poop. And of course they cry, but that's only to be expected.
