Great to see you back, Dan!! Congratulations to you & your wife on your new bundle of joy. :)

HIVE is thriving & we are only getting started (as you can see). :) Life will always be full of ups & downs but as long as we keep doing our own inner work, we will bring more light into the world (including this blockchain) & raise our vibration. :)

Namaste, my friend & take care! 💜

What you had to say about the difficulty is raising constantly really resonated with me. I think it’s very true and a good way to look at living. Congrats on the baby.

Wish you good health always.

Congratulations on the birth of your little one, Hope you all are doing well.

Congratulations man!


Congratulations to you and your wife on the birth of your baby.

Hey good morning and congrats on the little man. Best age to observe them at. The crawling and walking are my favourite though cos that's when they really start to show their character.

Little automatons! But programable evil grin

Congratulations on your baby! Good to see you back.

Congrats man! There is nothing quite like that feeling when they are a little one

¡Felicidades para esa bella familia!

Congratulations in your new roll @theycallmedan


Another awesome year you have.
Congrats and have fun and I know
fatherhood will bring you joy

Good to hear @theycallmedan
How the birth when...?
Did she give birth in water as you were saying in one of your previous videos?
Enjoy being a father for you will be a great experience I bet!
Namaste 🙏

Congratulations to the whole family!

Congratulations Dan 👶


Happy new life to y'all :) Endless possibilities and many good paths ahead!

Learning a language is something anyone can do, if you are ever interested let me know. But you are right, if you aren't truly interested, it's not worth it. Yo Congratulations!!

Hello baby Ander, welcome to this beautiful, filled with a lot of great and cool things to learn. Dad got you cover❤

Happy to hear you have a healthy baby Ander. I can't imagine how difficult was the 25 hour labor is, but all of the effort is really rewarding. God bless your family, Dan

When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.

John 16:21

Yesss! When "I'm back", is followed by this kind of announcement, then everything in the world is awesome!

Massive congratulations to you and your family from mine on this fabulous new addition.

'HELL WEEK' made me laugh as I remember it each time well but it is accompanied by a whole lot of adrenaline, love and wonder that pulls you through. Every single time you look at that whole little person who didn't exist but now does, that wonder grows.

I have many labels that I am known by in life, as I'm sure you do too, BUT if anyone ever took away the label of Dad, I have no clue who I would be, it is the one that defines me as a man more than any other. Enjoy all of those early steps and milestones, they go so, so fast.

The great thing for all of us here is that this will pump you for the next 'step-up of Hive/Speak and promote even more exciting growth and developments. Something about bringing a new future Hiver human to the world gives you the impetus to kick down walls and defeat challenges.

Sorry for the length of the comment, I know time will be tight right now, 'kinda what I do' lol. Don't think I've ever left you an epic comment BUT this is the kind of post that deserves acknowledging, from redfish to whale, everyone here is just a human, right? Posts like this give that important, authentic feel to our bloody amazing community.

Love the drive and passion when you talk about pushing forward to the next level, the most exciting, white knuckle part of the journey is yet to come! I cannot bloody wait!!! I often re-listen to the interview you did with Louis after the fork as that vision and belief is what gets me pumped more than anything else.

Welcome to the world Ander, it's not nearly as bad as some would have you believe, and everyone of us have our own opportunity to make it a little better, can't wait to read your intro post little dude. 😎

P.S Dan the midwife, that could be a whole other niche channel 😁

Agree with you on where Hive is headed and how strong its core fundamental purpose is... any added benefits like smart contracts and research on layer 1 development/solutions would be great.

Almost one month old, I know you are a doula with all the knowledge you had but how is the “dad” duties going? It’s almost your birthday and that will be different aswel as a fam bam! I as a mum am curious how is the mood “deep with the blinders on”
