Wow, crazy to think that in 5 weeks I will be Daddy. Blows my mind. Andi is feeling great as usual (were blessed) but is lacking sleep. This weekend may help as we are heading to the shore for 2 days at the in-laws and then to my mothers house for a cookout on Monday. If she does not get rest this weekend, the travel should knock her out.
I am getting to the point where I am starting to worry about having everything we need and should have. How many bottles do we need, the pacifiers, how many changing table covers do we need, ect. Its not something that is intuitive you know. I mean, what if Bella pees the bed 6 nights in a row, I NEED 6 SHEETS! That's nuts. What if she gets sick on the bumper pad? Do I need 2 of those, and if I do I cant get one that matches the bed set because it comes as a set. And what about how long I have to wait to show her off in the Bugaboo, 3 weeks, 6 weeks, 2 months? The opinions are all over the place with regards to what's rights, what's wrong, when this , how that. I guess at the end of the day that's what this is all about, exploration and finding your way with your own child's needs.
Truth be told, I am so ridiculously excited that its out of character for me. If my staff could see me they would not recognize me at all. We have a life, a precious being that we will be molding and educating into a young girl and she is directly from us. It really is an amazing thing to see first hand. Everyone sees pregnant woman and they ask all the questions but to watch your wife's stomach grow and all the time knowing that your baby is the reason why is so profound. I truly just sit here sometimes looking at Andi lying down and shaking my head and tearing up because I cannot believe that our baby is becoming our daughter. I imagine that allot of guys go through this, BUT YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW IT....I know, I know, it is truly all about mommy during the pregnancy.
Well, that's about it for tonight. Bella, when you read this at a later date…………DADDY LOVES YOU!
