Calvin Mellow


Dear Everyone-We-Know,

The evolutionary legacy of an upright posture,
a clever mind
opposable thumbs,
acute visual sense,
a talent for pattern-finding
and a love of metaphor
Has been passed down through
an exploded star,
a planet,
life,
to chordates,
to mammals,
to apes,
to humans,
to Michelle and Glendon,
and finally, on December 28th 2010 at 1:06am to Calvin George Follett Mellow.

Calvin Mellow has entered the universe's history at 7lb 11oz , to the
delight of his family and has all the potential in the world to be a
tool-user, a thinker, a metaphor-maker, an artist, a scientist, a poet, and most likely a source of surprise.

Thanks to everyone online and off, for their words of support and enthusiasm.

Awww! Between the hat and the outfit, I was thinking "Where's Calvin?" but he doesn't have glasses. Well, yet. Here's tohoping he doesn't have the potentiality for near- or far-sightedness in his genes! :)

I find your lack of trilobites named "Hobbes" disturbing.

Mike Haubrich, FCD said...

I love the name Calvin. Take care in the selection of stuffed tigers, howevver.

Glendon Mellow said...

Djordje: This battle-crib is now the ultimate power in the sandbox.

Thanks Mike! We have a bunch of stuffed animals for the little guy, but at the moment they're decoration only. Safety first!
