Our First Dance…

I cant even write any words to describe this moment so Ill just let the song play…


My Sweet “Leah Belle”

Where do I even begin? The absolute most amazing time I have and probably will ever have occurred this past week. The much anticipated birth of our baby girl.

You don’t believe the time has finally come do you?

Neither did I. When my wife tried waking me up at around 2AM to tell me her water broke, I half asleep tried to insist “Just go back to bed. You probably peed yourself.” Once I came to the ridiculousness of that I ended running around saying “Wheres my bag????” Of course my wife responded “You don’t have one. I told you to pack one” CRAP! But we managed and still got to the hospital in plenty of time.

My good friend and recent Dad told me how “amazing” it is what your wife can do. I believed and trusted him but I thought ya I know she is amazing that’s why I married her. But the entire laboring process just drove the point home to me on what he was trying to say.

5 hrs of walking the halls attempting to progress the labor, epidural issues causing it not to work until just two hours before birth and working thru all that to 7cm before any pain relief, 16 hrs of labor, and of course pushing our precious girl into this world. Thru all that is where my eyes widened to see what my wife handled so well. Doing all this while I encouraged her to try to hold on just 6 more hrs until my birthday.

But lil Leah wanted me to know that she will always be “number 1” and she wanted her own birthday, 2-1-12. Pretty sweet number sequence.

As always God is faithful, his timing is perfect and the supporting staff were amazing. He watched over her throughout the pregnancy and when she came out wearing 2 necklaces and a bracelet (Cord wrapped around her head twice and arm). And if I had one wish for my baby girl it would be…

I could have no greater joy than to hear that my children are following the truth.

Like my wife said “words can’t describe the feeling.” And alot of people throw that around for alot of different life events but this is IT! As it all unfolded tears poured down my face and laughter came bursting out. It was just so surreal! And when she first opened her beautiful eyes and looked at me she claimed my heart forever.

Oh! The Places You Will Go!

Recently the wife has informed me that baby girl can start recognizing voices. Also my fellow partner in the Dad to Be and blog world writes about how he communicates with his future son(front runner in my suitor search). So I have begun reading her bed time stories. I even made my wife put a pillow over her head and cover her ears so the little one and I could have some alone time. I mean when do the dads get some one on one bonding time anyways? This one is my favorite and hopefully will become hers… Continue reading

Gray Hairs at the BMV

So as my wife’s 25th birthday approached, it was time to head to the BMV. I know your probably thinking I started getting gray hairs from the staff at the BMV. Actually the experience at this particular location(Not telling location for fear of it becoming crowded 🙂 was great! In and out in about 20 minutes or so. Continue reading

My Wife’s Butterball

So as the days go on in this crazy pregnancy. I have learned alot! Mostly by error but either way I have learned alot (Mainly what not to say/do. Sorry babe.)

Every day I stare at my wife’s butterball belly. (See lesson learned) And every day my love grows not only for my wife but the little one growing inside of her. Her Mini-Me. Corny yes. But true.

Hi Mommy and Daddy!

After 2 weeks of no baby appointments we had a few yesterday. Which 2 weeks without an appointment seemed like a little vacation from the hormonal waiting rooms we have been visiting.

It was time to head back for another ultrasound. To the same office where I was introduced to a PINK WORLD . We were back again because the Doc didn’t get quite the pictures he wanted to rule out any heart issues with our little girl.
