I was born on Wednesday June 5, 2002 at 4:24pm in Halifax.
I weighed 7 lbs, 15 oz and I measured 20 inches in length.
My eyes are dark blue and my hair is long and brown (for now).
I am named after Walter Maxwell
Stone, my great-great-grandfather, and my great-great-uncle, Maxwell Dabney
Stone, both on my father’s side.
Walter Maxwell Stone was born on March 26, 1882, and Maxwell Dabney Stone on January 13, 1916.
The name Maxwell is also a nod to my daddy's friend Heather.
My middle name, Bernard, comes from my maternal great-grandfather, Bernard Samson.
