Dale Jr decided he wanted to be around for Christmas and was born three weeks early, on December 19. Kassimah, 33, said the timing couldnt be better. My partner Dales family is in Darwin for Christmas, Kassimah said. They got here from Cairns on the day hewas born so theyll get to meet him. Dad Dale Sr, 31, is happy his first child has arrived and is excited that he has a son. Big sister Shanaye Crosby-Dowling, 3, has claimed Dale Jr as her baby. Dale Jr, whoweighed 3.5kg andmeasure 49.5cmwhen hewas born, was named after Dale Sr and Kassimahs dad Dale, who passed away before Shanayewas born. Dale Jr gets his middle name from Kassimahs grandfather Raymond. Flynn Jamieson Carroll GORGEOUS Flynn has everyone in awe at themoment. MumPeta Brewster, 35, said she was still in shock at having a second child. I went for an ultrasound on Logans first birthday and they toldme I was eight weeks pregnant, the former childcare worker said. It was a big shock because it tookme seven years to get Logan and then along came Flynn. Nineteen-month-old Logan knows theword brother is related to Flynn and the boys share their own unique connection. They are the first generation of Territorians for our families, Peta said. My family is fromMelbourne and Damiens is from Albany inWA. Dad Damien, 33, a powdercoater, said hewas happy about Flynns arrival. I wasnt fussed about anything else as long as hewas healthy, he said. Flynnwas born at Royal Darwin Hospital on December 19. He weighed 3.1kg andmeasured 48cm. Stephanie Sunsinii Hickey STEPHANIE Sunsinii Hickeys parents, Stephen and Sunisa, fromDriver, have high hopes for their daughter. It will be entirely up to her, Stephen said. But, hopefully, shell do something that will make lots of money so her dad can retire. Stephanie is the first grandchild of Saydee andMaonit, whowere delighted to hear the news over the telephone in Thailand of her birth in Darwin Private Hospital. Stephaniewas overdue by four dayswhen she arrived on December 17 at 6.47pm. The couple hasnt ruled out doing it all again. Shes the first one of two, most likely, Mr Hickey, 49, said. Stephanie, weighing 3.26kg and measuring 49cm, will probably wind up supporting Carlton in the AFL. Austin Troy Smith DARWIN has a newBuffalo now that baby Austin has arrived. Dad Daniel, 25, is an all-rounder for the Buffs so there could be some family boots to fill when Austin is a little older. Mum Lisa, 24, said shewas excited about Austins arrival. Nowwe have the pigeon pair, she said. Weve got trouble and strife so that will be it for a while. Big sister Aralia is 16months old and still adjusting to having a baby brother but the family is hoping thingswill settle downwhen they are all home. Austin has a bit of a yarn to tell in coming years about his name too. Daniel liked the name Austin and when his brother pointed out that if you took the first part of Austin and the last part of Aralia you had the word Australia it was settled upon. It was coincidental with a little intent, Lisa said. Austin was born at Royal Darwin Hospital on December 19, weighing 3.5kg andmeasuring 51cm.
