Introducing Asher Mateo

THREE-YEAR-OLD gift from God Asher Mateo St Churstian Murray was born on Saturday, May 4, 2019.

Name meaning: His name means "Happy gift from God and follower of Christ, who finds settlement by the sea". He is also at times called "DJ Connor".

Likes: He loves the colour yellow, he is overly energetic, and loves to be by himself.

Mood: He is a whole mood and then some, because even though his words are still coming into play, he will tell it like it is.

Favourites: He loves dumpling, he likes family time, but most importantly, he loves his tablet time, where he either tunes in to Vlad and Niki, Larva, or some off the grid reality building show.

"When I have him tune in to learning videos, I can hear him saying his A,B, C and counting, but if ever he catches you watching, best believe he goes silent. I know my baby can talk, but I understand and support him wanting to be a baby a little longer. We have dogs and he loves to be outside with them. He loves ball games with dad and he most definitely is a runner," mom Nordia says.

Parents' wish for his future: "We pray most for life, so that we may be able to see him through any unforeseen perilous or inevitable times. He is our first child and we are doing all that is possible to ensure that he can be anything his heart desires. The world is for the taking and we just want to ensure he gets a clear scope of that, using us firstly, as his examples. We are always working, whether home or otherwise, and we try to not leave him out of the loop. He might not be able to go to work with daddy, but when given the opportunity, we let him tag along. We believe that the future gets its inspirations from the present, so what better way to channel thought and a better tomorrow." – Parents Swaydon & Nordia.
