Introducing…

Xavier Furio Jarnagin
8lbs, 20in. Born 6:35AM April 26, 2010

He is so sweet! Big Brother, Elijah loves to give him kisses.

He loves to sleep and hates having his diaper changed 🙂
The story behind his name comes from my Italian heritage. My grandfather was an immigrant and his last name was Furio. Due to the death of his parents when he was very young, he was adopted by family who, because of the difficult pronunciation of their own family name, were dubbed “Palermo” on Ellis Island because that is where they had immigrated from. Palermo is my maiden name. I really wanted one of my children to share in my family’s legacy name-wise, so here is my little bambino!

  1. Jen,
    Thanks for sharing the origin of Xavier’s name. What a sweet tribute. Of course, you made me cry. When Heather and I went to NYC last summer to visit Rickey we went to Ellis Island. I will never forget the aura I felt in that building as we saw the artifacts and movies and pictures of the immigrants and their stuggle to come to this new world. Much of it was very sad, but a testament to the strong will of those amazing people.
