The Brooks Arenburg family is happy to announce the arrival of Alexander Oscar Brooks Arenburg.
Finally, a little brother for Hayden and a second, much-loved son for Alan and Patricia.
After several changes in plans due to his ninja-like moves, Alex was born on July 21, 2017, at 10:20 a.m. at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax.
He weighed in at seven pounds 10.8 ounces, and let out a good, healthy cry of displeasure upon arrival.
His birth is also celebrated by grandparents Theresa (Terry) and Robert (Bob) Brooks, Dale and Pearl Arenburg, great-grandfather Oscar Arenburg, and his aunts, uncles, cousins and special friends who are like family to us.
Many thanks to the staff at the IWK and doctors Scott Mawdsley and Patrick Seetharamdoo, all of whom cared for us throughout the pregnancy.
We'd also like to thank Patti's Halifax Typographical Union colleagues on the picket line for their continued kindness and support.
Alex, you are truly a sweet surprise during a difficult time. We are blessed to have you, Little Squid.
