I have been wanting to write this particular entry for awhile now, but I was told I had to wait until the right time. Well this is now the right time, and I have the green light to discuss it.

My lady is 3 months pregnant, and we are both very excited. The due date right now is February 14, although these things change, so I'm not attaching myself to that date. This came as a bit of a surprise, but we are both ready for this, and it is going to be fun. Yes it'll be hard work too, but what isn't these days? And for you righteous, nosy people, marriage is still very much in the works, so kiss my ass.

It is going to be weird for me having two kids 11 years apart. Very weird. I feel like an old(er) man. I tell my father about this in about 2 hours, and I think of all the people I have to tell, he is the person who I am the most nervous about. I know he'll be supportive, and I know he'll give me things to think about too..that's what parents do. My mother was happy, and asking about marriage, but I expect that from a minister. I didn't tell her to kiss my ass, I just told her to be patient (kiss my ass).

I'm still several weeks away from knowing the sex of the baby, but last Wed I was able to see my child jumping around in the ultrasound and that was a surreal experience. I missed out on all of these things with my first son, so there is no way in hell that I am missing anything if I can help it. I need all of you to pray for a healthy baby first and foremost, and then specifically pray for a boy. I'm counting on you.

I'm sure I'll be talking about this more during the coming months.

i'll be looking forward to subsequent blogs as you two embark on this exciting new period in your lives (eww. cliche much?)

anyway, remember the movie 'she's having a baby'? well i'll expect blogs like that, complete with john hughes dialog. I'm so 80s right now.
