It’s been awhile since I last blogged. Since then, I’ve transitioned over into a new decade of age (yep, I turned 30 last week! ugh!), we had our first baby shower with friends of ours in Nashville while we were visiting, and Amy just keeps getting… bigger.
I’m finding that this period of time between “Hey! You’re gonna be a Dad!” and the inevitable moment where that actually comes to pass is feeling rather long. It gives us time to prepare – mentally, etc – but I’m realizing this might be one of those situations for me that might be better to just dive into. See, while it’s nice to have some time to enjoy my wife’s and my last few months of just us for many years ahead, it’s tough to truly make the best of that time when she’s nauseous daily because of the pregnancy… and nearly everyone and everything around us tend to enjoy reminding us of the pending parenthood. It’s safe to say we haven’t forgotten – and won’t! – but it would be nice to be able to kind of savor our last few months of non-parenthood as a married couple. But hey, this is coming from a guy who isn’t baby crazy first and foremost like many folks are. And there’s nothing wrong with being baby crazy – it’s only natural, however, I don’t believe it’s wrong to want to savor your last few months of baby-free time with your spouse either!
And it becomes increasingly difficult to forget parenthood looms as the little Mrs continues to “fill out,” so to speak. But it is exciting to know that in just two weeks we’ll find out the gender of our little one… I think they’ve got it narrowed down to “boy” or “girl”… we just don’t know which one yet ;o)
But rest assured that we’ll make that announcement here as soon as we know!
Until then… here’s to endless thinking on how much life is about to change!!
