Introducing Xavier

9 July, 2006 9:12 PM

Last week I wrote that V and I were waiting for our little 'Peanut' to arrive and today I'm happy to report that he arrived last Thursday morning (6th July) at 12.48m

His name is Xavier.

Here's a shot of us taken just minutes after he was born.


Xavier is 8 pounds and 13 ounces (just a touch over 4kg), he has a good head of hair (more than I have) and he's cute from head to toe.

Both he and his mum are doing very well. We're back at home today and he seems to be settling in quite nicely so far.

Here's another of my favorite shots of our little Peanut.

Many many congratulations to you all! May God grant your new bubby a wonderful life full of joy and love (I'm sure with you both as parents that will definitely be the case!)

Congratulations (and good luck...) to the both of you! :) Kids add a whole new dimension to the world, and blessings big and small.

I have referenced your blog many times for the information you have on Myers/Briggs and I figured it was about time that I post something.

Your baby is beautiful! Congrats.

Congrats! It seems like your whole life has been changing into great things. If you want something bad enough, and you keep trying you'll end up with those things, and most importantly - great things will happen unexpectidly. Now you can start a blog about raising kids haha

A new life...that is so very very excellent. Congratulations Darren and Xavier and Xaviers mother (couldn;t find her name...maybe I wasn't looking very hard!)

Praise the Lord for your healthy Peanut! I love that nickname!

Congratulations! May the Lord bless you with wisdom to raise Xavier to even greater heights and achievements than you. May he be the Isaac to your Abraham, the Jacob to your Isaac, and the Judah to your Jacob.

I believe God for blessings to rain abundantly upon you and your family in the name of Jesus.

Be blessed, Darren.
