It’s a boy!

Hey everyone!

Another day another baby!   On November 2nd at 1am exactly our son, Ozzy Ash Pawliuk-Maidlow was born.  Yup, Ozzy as in =]  Weighing in Ozzy Ash Pawliu-Maidlowat a hefty 6 lbs 5 oz (as opposed to our who was 4 lbs 7 oz).  Mom and baby are doing great.  As I hoped this time around was a LOT easier.  Much better when you have some idea what you’re getting into.  The only thing I wasn’t prepared for was the lack of sleep.  Staring blankly at a screaming baby on maybe 2 hours of sleep trying to remember how to change the diaper on a newborn.  The last time I did an all nighter was when our daughter was born.  Before that it had been many years =)

Fortunately the little guy looks great in pink : )

About

Dad. Nerd. Ninja.
I'm a software developer. It's my passion. I work for a company named ChasmX and I specialize in helping businesses solve problems and save money using custom software. I have a significant amount of experience with AutoCAD, Mapguide, GIS, databases, spatial, n-tier architecture, nHibernate - all that kinda fun stuff.

In the handful of hours I'm not glued to my keyboard I also play a little guitar, I'm sometimes in a band call the midget militia. Married, with five dogs, and a one year old daughter. Number two is due in a matter of weeks!

Being stuck in a chair as a software developer for over a decade and a half was horrible for my physical self. In the past five years I've lost almost 100lbs and gained a whole new lease on life. I've become an avid practioner of P90X/2 and Insanity. I also do a bit of running and mountain biking. I used to be a competitive alpine ski racer as a teenager and I'm still an avid skiier.

  1. Congratulations Darrin!
    As much as you enjoyed coffee before, now is when you really get to appreciate its power to revive you after nights with less than 5 hours of sleep :-)

  2. Thanks Arne! It’s been pretty great until last night. Last night he woke up a bunch and woke up our daughter too for double trouble :)
