We’re happy to announce the newest member of the Clockpunk Studios team! For the last eight months we’ve been interested in hiring a new recruit, and we’ve finally found the perfect candidate. He’s proven himself to be eager, on time (early, actually), persistent, and eager to advocate for himself.
All joking aside, Matthew Manley Tolbert was born to Sarah and Jeremy Tolbert at 12:08 PM on June 24th, 2014. He weighed 4 lbs 12 oz, and was 18 inches long. He’s been growing steadily since his birth, and is very healthy.
Sarah and Jeremy have been so excited to welcome this addition to their household! They’re discovering all the challenges that come with having a new baby, and though they’re very tired, they’re excited to note every little change, and are embracing their roles as parents with all the enthusiasm in the world.
I’ve known Sarah and Jeremy for years now, and I know they’ve always yearned to start a family and be parents. During our conversations over the years, when we finished talking about work and moved on to matters personal, several times Jeremy expressed his desire to have kids, embrace and explore the role of fatherhood. I’m therefore extremely pleased they’ve welcomed Matty into their home. I’m pretty sure Jeremy won’t mind me revealing how often he spoke of his hopes and his anxieties, his impatience to meet Matty and his understandable terror of being quite suddenly responsible for another human being.
I never doubted that he and Sarah would make great parents, and the anecdotes they’ve been posting to social media and that Jeremy has told me over the phone just serve to confirm this. Man, I love being right. But I love more knowing that their kid will grow up with parents who are wholly committed to making his life an awesome one.
Cheers to Matty—welcome to the world! And cheers to Jeremy and Sarah!
