User Release 1.0 "Soren Tesla" March 11, 2015 9:18 AM   Subscribe

It is my pleasure to welcome a new member into the Mefi family: Twain Device and his wife Allison welcomed their first child, Soren Tesla, to the world this morning.

Mom and Dad and baby Soren are all happy and healthy and resting comfortably. Congrats to everyone involved on finishing 9 months of beta testing and the end-user release. I'm told that Soren comes with a special early release feature: eyebrows!

Awake but only for the moment! Thanks for the well wishes everyone. Expect a few thousand AskMe questions over the coming years. I have no doubt that the Mefite family will be the best support group imaginable

Expect a few thousand AskMe questions over the coming years.

Hire a lawyer and a therapist for the baby, and don't eat any of them.

Congrats!

Twain Device, I'm curious how you came upon the name Soren. My SO and I have that short-listed as one of our hypothetical male names for our hypothetical future children. For us is an anglicization of a Norwegian name (SO is of Norwegian ancestry).

New-baby threads oughta have the same rule as pet questions: pictures required. But other than that, congrats to the whole family!

Hello, Soren. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, Soren—God damn it, you've got to be kind.

After several years reading the green I can confidently tell you that you shouldn't declaw the baby.

I must admit I'm a bit confused. How exactly was this babby formed?

Ask and ye shall receive. Look at this cuteass baby you guys! He's got little eyebrows and it's literally killing me!

I hate babies so my uglybaby-dar is pretty well tuned.

That is a certifiably cute baby. Well done, folks.

Wow for version 1.0 you did pretty damn well in the looks dept.
posted by radioamy at 8:14 PM on March 11, 2015


Congrats! In lieu of askmefi I offer my mom's wisdom, passed down when my son was born:
"Don't be a perfect mother!"
Works equally well for dads.
Relax and enjoy, it goes fast.

Whoa, so round! That babby is very well-shaped for someone so young. Congratulations! Try not to freak out too much, but when you do, keep in mind that the freaking out dies down over time!

do internet people give their babies usernames/pseudonyms as well as real life names?

That is a well-formed babby.

Congratulations, parents, and welcome to the world, Soren Tesla!
posted by Lynsey at 10:33 AM on March 12, 2015


Radioamy, we chose the name because we really love Scandinavia. We honeymoon'd there and make frequent vacays there. She suggested it but it also happens to be a fictional character in the Magic the Gathering card game. So that was pretty hilarious.

And Tesla is the for the inventor(not the car, though I do want one of those too)

Oh, that second picture--! Look at the happiness and wisdom there. Joy! This is excellent news; congratulations!
posted by MonkeyToes at 4:06 PM on March 12, 2015


( it's a lovely name, & I was also riffing on your username, which if I recall correctly stood for "thing without an interesting name." )
posted by Devils Rancher at 10:35 PM on March 12, 2015


That is correct. One of my favorite tech acronyms!

From this errant process...

Congratulations!
