Clementine Is Here!

The muse, official mascot, and minor celebrity of Nick's Flick Picks, Amanda Moore, has just called to let me know that her 7lb., 4oz. precious bundle of love arrived into the world yesterday, at 3:14am. Which means that Clementine Deane Nelson is already a girl after my own heart: a late-late night owl! That's what I consider a very good sign, as is sharing a name with the best character from an American movie in recent memory.

Amanda and her husband Nate—adorably snuggling up to Clementine here while sporting his very own Murderball goatee—have always done everything their very own way, which is part of why I love them so much. So Clementine is about to be celebrated like no other baby in the history of time may ever have been celebrated: by having her father race a two-person bicyclish thing that he has personally designed and built in the spitting image of a woman in labor. The race will be in Detroit this Saturday, so clear the roads, people. And give it up for the adorable Clementine, who I must say would make quite a dashing pair with Henry Emmett Hutcheson. See what happens when cute babies get born to wonderful people? Turns out I can get as giddily heteronormative as all the breeders on the block.

Love you guys!

Congratulations to the proud new parents! And Nick, before you pair Clem and Henry open this Creative and so very Sweet Circle of Generation (Z?) babies to include Wyatt's and A's baby, due any day now. Actual gender, as well as over-due birth date, still a surprise for these new parents.

BTW: Must add another baby on the way - my dear friend Maura is in the U.K., and also looking forward to the birth of a son on Nov. 1st, and the three months of paid maternal leave that the U.K. healthcare system provides...

Congrats 'round and 'round and 'round - srr

I also know a Brooklyner who's a year older than Clementine and is already a bona fide cutie....!
