At 9:42 pm, Tuesday, November 15, 2005, baby William Dax Chatham was born!

Dax weighed a hefty 9lbs 12oz, and was 19.5 inches long. Alicia did it all naturally. How, I am still trying to figure out. But it was great!

Sorry, I have no pics yet. Stay tuned!

  1. Congratulations! Where does the name ‘Dax’ come from?

    We are still waiting on our first… about three months along right now.

  2. Thanks, and good luck with yours!

    Dax was a name we tossed around and ended up keeping mainly because our two year-old decided that’s what he wanted to call his baby brother. We first heard it from a character on (ahem) Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (Ezri Dax aka Kirzon Dax). Not that we are big Trekkies (OK, well I am). But then when in labor last night, we were looking through a book of names and found out Dax is a French name meaning “lover of water”.

  3. Congrats, Will (and wife and Dax)! The name is cool (and I’m not even that much of a Trek fan).

  4. I remember “old man” Dax from DS9… I just didn’t want to say anything about it in case it was some special family name… 🙂

  5. Woo Hoo! Way to go….that’s one big baby. Mine were not quite that big and I’m glad. When does the rest of the world get to meet him?
    Cheers good Daddy.

  6. Congrats, Willis!

  7. Congratulations! Thats pretty exciting!

  8. Right on. Congrats, Will.

  9. you are the man willis. and, you can admit it, you got “dax” from “jax,” and “jax” from “jackson.” it’s okay to go public with this information.

    congrats to you both!

  11. Well…if we had a girl, we were going to name her Ezri, as in Ezri Dax. Another boy and it might be Kahles (the Klingon god). Like those at all?
