Many of you know what we went through the past year with his in utero congenital heart defect diagnosis and subsequent corrective open heart surgeries.
I can't express my appreciation for the support from members here.
Today I am so stoked to be celebrating life with Tiberius for a year!
Happy birthday little one!

Tiberius. Isn't that the name of Captain James T. Kirks grandfather? Cool name.
Yep, first name of the Captain's grandfather and his (as in the "T") middle name.

Story goes, Roddenberry had just given him the initial, never thinking of actual name. It just rolled off his tounge.
After much fan speculation and prodding, he finally came up with Tiberius.

Mrs snowtrooper hated the name at first, said NO WAY!
Long story short, blurted the name out under sedation to hospital attendant. Started getting positive feedback right away.

That is an awesome story:) When my daughter was born I wanted to name her Padme, the wife said no way. We did compromise, we named her Natalie.
