The day finally came after a bit of waiting. We logged into our “World of Real Life” account and created a new Level 1 Human. We decided to name him Xander Lee Zalewski. He finally logged in at 3:15pm on December 8th weighing in at 7lbs 4oz, carrying his starting gear.
In all seriousness, we couldn’t be happier. Our daughter, Aerissa, is excited to have a little brother. She wouldn’t stop talking about it in the days leading up to his birth. I’m excited to have a son to go along with my daughter. It will be a sort of new experience raising a boy (though I have some first-hand experience.) Up until now, raising Aerissa was pretty neutral in terms of gender as she is still quite young and hasn’t yet got into her “girly things” stage.
I wrote a bit more about my thoughts on the next child on Syrana’s website, if you want to read it.
