Charlie Nesson Marshall, born 24 March 2009, 4:55 am, 7 lbs and 14.2 ozs

Mother and daughter are doing well; Nico seems curious & amused about her sudden sister.

Dad is downright delighted, as you can see.

& dog tired. G’night!

    Welcome home Charlie!

  • 6. Steven Shaviro  |  March 25th, 2009 at 7:28 am

    Congratulations squared!

  • 7. Birdseed  |  March 25th, 2009 at 8:22 am

    Oh wow, congratulations.

    Sabina comments mock-angrily that Charlie is a boy’s name (and her little brother’s), thus providing evidence for various (post-structuralist?) theories about gender-neutral names and how names become “devalued” by girls having them. (Apparently a common trend is for a name to start off male-specific, go gender-neutral and then become female-specific as it “loses value”.)

    that’s so cool that you named your daughter after a unicorn.

  • 14. wayneandwax  |  March 25th, 2009 at 10:09 am

    oh man, if i watch that ‘charlie the unicorn’ video again, i’ll never be able to stop saying “charlie” like that.

    just for the record — and for birdseed — we named lil charlie after her grandfather. so, yes, it is a boy’s name, though it has been increasingly common for girls too. and we’re more than happy to contribute to the post-structuralist devaluation of gendered names! looking forward to seeing how boyish v. girly our kids (nico = another boy-ish name) turn out!

    thx for all the kind words, y’all.

  • 15. Greg  |  March 25th, 2009 at 5:38 pm
