Surprise, a blog not posted by Jenny. :-) I'm not as disciplined at posting to blogs like my beautiful wife, but I thought I better start now before our child is born.

So, yes, as everyone has learned already, Jenny is pregnant. I still don't think it has really hit me yet. I think one big reason is that I've been on vacation since we found out. Tomorrow is the day I head back to work. Once I get to start talking about it with the people I see every day I'm sure it'll become more real. However, I'm not sure how soon I'll start telling people since we're trying to wait until the first 12 weeks is over and we hear that sweet sound of a heart beat coming from our baby.

From the husband's side of this journey, I have different things to talk about. I hear that we're having a baby and my responsibility gene kinda kicks into overdrive. I immediately start thinking about my schooling that I'm going through right now and how I want to get through it as quickly as possible. I want to make sure that I'm able to provide for my family. Not that it wasn't extremely important up until now, but now I have a little baby to provide for. I know the Lord will provide, but it's hard for me not to worry about it just a tad.

I also wonder how to even raise this child. I'm sure every new parent feels this way at some point. I guess we all get a chance to figure it out as we go. I just pray that I'll be a good example and positive role model for our child. It actually puts me more at ease knowing that my wonderful wife has a lot of experience with children. She might have to "hold my hand" a little bit as I learn what I need to know.

Well, that's enough for one post. Back to work tomorrow. Back to life going at full speed.


  1. You're going to be a GREAT dad and it will all sink in about the time you hear his/her cry for the first time! Can't wait to experience this journey with you guys!!!

  2. You are going to be a wonderful dad! As sweet as you are to those two silly dogs, you'll be even better to our baby. Just remember, you can't lock the baby in a crate when you leave the house.
