“This nascent blog has been going for just over a month.”
From Latin nasci, “to be born.” This root word gave birth to a number of other words as well, including ‘innate’ (for a quality or ability that you are born with) and ‘renaissance’ (a revival, or rebirth), along with more common words like ‘native’ and ‘nation.’ True story; I know better than to try to trick you readers. After all, you weren’t born yesterday.
