Hi, my name is Xander Dean Fanning and I came into the world on 10th August 2020 at 2:14pm. I weigh 3.31 kg or 7lbs 7oz I’m extremely strong, healthy and calm all because of my beautiful Mama Breeana is a full on superhero. Mama was so calm, relaxed and in the zone. Dada calls her his Zen Wonder Woman and is so in awe of how strong and amazing she is. Dada thought he could focus but he’s got nothing on Mama. She rules. Dada loves you beyond words. Can’t wait to meet all my family, friends and all my Uncles and Aunties around the world that gave us so much support. But until then I’m going to get to know Mama and Dada so would love some quiet time with them. Thank you to Dr Gen Bishop @glow_obstetrics and all the amazing midwives and staff at John Flynn Hospital. You’ve all been too kind, loving and helpful. See you all soon. Much love Xander Dean. @breeanablue
