So in a rather unexpected turn of events involving a home birth several days after his due date and his big brother somehow sleeping through the commotion of his parents, grandparents and three midwives all milling about the house to attend to his new sibling, Xavier Patrick Palmer has made himself known to the world at 7:03 am, at an impressive 8 lbs 5 oz and 50 cm in length. (Because we can't just stick to one measurement system, right?) Mama and baby are doing well, Isaiah's taking an extended play date at his grandparents, and our family Director of Communications is here making sure you get all the FACTS. (For instance: he has my nose.) Thanks everyone for your support and we hope you can meet him soon!
