The clock is ticking down; our time waiting for our baby is rapidly coming to an end. By that, I mean that we will probably have a new addition to our family within the next week! While this wait has seemed so long it has been too short at the same time. We still have so much that we could do, so much to prepare for, baby gear to sort through, house projects to complete. But all that will have to wait I suppose. Who’s complaining, though, we’ll have a blessed new gift to attend to. We have been found fit to raise a child and that is such an amazing thing.
My father gene hasn’t completely turned on yet, but I’m sure that will change as soon as I lay eyes on that squirmng little mess. I’m really excited to see – boy or girl, brown or blonde (Aimee and I were both curly blonde as kids, small or as big as the doctor has led us to believe). It’s all so exciting yet incredibly frightening at the same time. But I guess we’ll do just what every new set of parents do – learn as we go. That’s what I’m planning on at least. I mean – geez- I’ve never even changed a diaper (much to my family’s dismay as they tried to get me to with my niece and nephew). I’ve just never seen the need to try. Babies and kids generally don’t like me…apparently I’m scary or something.
On another note, I’ve decided to grow a beard for the birth. I just have these images of new fathers holding new babies all bearded and stuff. I am man – I helped make this! It could just be that the visuals I have of this are all from pictures from the 60s and 70s. So, wish us luck – we’ll see how it goes.
