Wow, I have only dreamt of this day.
My wife is pregnant.
I have thought about this moment often. We talked before about how many kids we wanted to have. I always thought I would be frightened when the time came. Like “how in the world am I going to do this?”. I always hear how people are never “ready” to have kids. They say there is never a “right” time to have kids. I do not feel that way at all. Trust me, I know that parenting is not all unicorns and rainbows, but I am not scared. I am right where I need to be.
I have the greatest woman as my wife. That’s what makes this perfect. Having her as my partner and mother to our child eases my nerves.
I have an awesome family that has been and always will be the greatest support system no matter what is going on in life.
I have great friends and co-workers that this kid will grow up around.
From our friends to its cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents and of course, us, their parents, this child is going to be loved beyond belief.
I wonder, will they play softball like their mother? Will they root for the Pirates like their father or be a poor Yankees fan, like their mom? While all of that is fun to think about, none of it really matters when it comes down to loving this child.
If you cant tell, I am excited. As is my wife. Please keep our nugget and my wife in your prayers for a smooth pregnancy. There will be no shortage of updates on the blog and podcast. Thank you for joining us on this journey and all of your support!
