Big Red Car back in the ATX after a longish trip to Savannah to welcome Tempe Elizabeth Eichholz into the world. She arrived at Candler Hospital at 7 lbs 4 ounces and 19.5 inches.
Tempe is the most recent one in a long line of Tempes (Faith, Hope, Charity, Temperance (Tempe), it’s a Southern thing.). There’s a grandmother, a great grandmother, an aunt Tempe.
Somehow, I knew she would be a good baby. No crying – except to command a bit of nourishment from her red headed mother. [Baby TEE has black hair and dark, bluish eyes like her wonderful father.]
Mom, can we talk about these hats?
She is a vigorous eater and sleeper, already regaining her birth weight.
OK, so there’s ballet, Cotillion, calculus, Camp Longhorn, and being a debutante, then I have to start my own business. I think I’ll just take a nap until my next feeding. Being a modern Southern woman is tiring.
And, there, dear reader, you have it. Welcome Baby TEE, a modern Southern woman, into the world. World, watch out.
But, hey, what the Hell do I really know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car. Be good to yourselves, you deserve it. Thank you, God, for Baby TEE.
