The Girl from Ipanema…

That song is in my head.

My news is a little late, but that’s because I am miles away from The Current Center of the World and I didn’t know the Current Center of the World was going to arrive just yet. I thought time stood still while I was being an asshole? Come on!

Ranger emailed me this morning with the news that Tiko had her baby. I promptly replied, urging her to go see the Current Center of the World and tell Tiko that I love her. And also ‘take photos with your instant camera, run out to a developer, order double prints, wait for them to come back and either snail mail me a photo or run to somehow get a scan of it and email it to me’.

As soon as I hit send on that email, I thought… ‘they do send mothers home within hours of having babies nowadays, don’t they? I’ll just phone Tiko and if no one answers I’ll just leave a message’. Well, her husband, The Golf Pro, answered the phone and gave me the particulars.

The Current Center of the World is baby girl, Cailyn Annika. She was born Tuesday morning, January 30th, at 9:04 in the morning. She weighed in at a healthy 7.4 lbs and was 18.5 inches long. Tiko is also coming home at noon today, so I should get a call from her very soon.

If I had been a better friend, or been any closer to Tiko; I’d have photos of her big fat belly, I’d have photos of her glowing skin and twinkling eyes. But I don’t. I hope other people do and I’ll get to see them soon enough.

Congratulations, Tiko and The Golf Pro!

Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes,
each one she passes goes – ahh.
