Introducing Elliott Thomas

Sabrina and I are proud to announce our most recent joint production: Elliott Thomas Wilson Golonka, born at 16:05 GMT on the 21st of December, 2011, at St James' Hospital in Leeds to the tune of 'Fairytale of New York' (seriously, you can't escape that song this time of year, even in operating theatres!). 8lb 13oz, all fingers and toes present and correct! Thanks to everyone at St James for their sterling work, and to the ongoing midwifery support courtesy of the UK's National Health Service. NHS, we love you lots!

Elliott will be be contributing his experiences as a developing perceiving acting embodied organism to the blog (and, most likely to another blog we'll set up to nerd out about our son). We look forward to his unique insights into the processes of perceptual learning and development, and to recreating some fun experiments in the comfort of our own home.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all our readers; 2011 has been a big year for us in lots of ways and while obviously the blog is going to slow down for the next while, we're looking forward to more fun in 2012.

Andrew, Sabrina & Elliott

  3. Congrats! You got plenty of time, but be sure to look for the tacting and manding in about a year and a half (sooner if you do sign language). Also remember, there is no sleep better than a sleep with a young baby on your chest.

  6. Congratulations indeed! Cool birth-date too (although the Xmas problem is obvious). The lil' feller better get his arguments straight, soon!

    (The late Kirsty Mac' was a dear friend, so it always bucks me up to hear of her resonance still on this planet, over ten years on)
