A small peak at our baby boy!! Vance Arion Christo came into this world at 8.59am this morning (14th June 2006), weighing in at 8.8Ib (3.655kg). He was 49.5CM long and has a full head of hair. He came in all guns blazing with a strong set of lungs. He is feeding well! Helen, is great, she has performed amazingly again, and is officially my hero. Xenia is excited at the prospect of having a little bro, but I think she isn't sure what this all means yet..Thanks to for all your kind wishes. Posted by Picasa

It’s the eve of the arrival of our baby boy. Tomorrow we’ll hop in the car at 7am and head off to the hospital. We are planning to go via the beach and catch the sunrise for him on video.

I am delirious with anticipation and excitement. I am terrified that Helen is having another Caesar, but that was the best choice for her. Our baby girl is with her grand parents and they are beside themselves with excitement at having her for two days.

I am doing my best to put aside all the other life concerns like business and money so I can be here in the moment. Its hard, I have to confess, but I am here…. Right here in the moments before I receive another little human into our home. I am delighted he is a boy, as that is the icing on the cake for already having a beautiful girl.

I have faced many moments of reality in my life, including danger and excitement, but the thrill of momentarily being a dad to a little man is unsurpassed for me.

Looking forward to making your acquaintance my son.

We hit the street fruit and vege market in Richmond last weekend. Helen was impressed given the deals and quality of the produce... Xenia found a clown who introduced her to the world of the hoola hoop!!!! Afterwards,.. she did a baby-Chino! Posted by Picasa
