20121208-162317.jpgThe 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.

Welcome

We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
