My First Post

Following Hope's recommendation and the example of the great women in our family (Hope, Anna and Sarah) I've been inspired to create a blog. Reading their blogs I've come to appreciate how easy it is to share news and experiences w/friends and family. Especially now that we have so much to share with my pregnancy. So I hope you enjoy reading my posts and leave comments often.

For my first post I'd like to share this special picture:
I had to convince myself I was actually pregnant and ended up taking 4 home tests. The first test was one of those with the 2 pink lines. Well, the second pink line was really light so I didn't think it was accurate. I decided to buy a box of digital tests to remove all doubt. After the 1st and 2nd one confirmed I was pregnant I still didn't believe it...I had to take one more test to be SURE. And here's the proof!

I'm almost scared to be sharing all of this information so early in the process. I don't want to jinx anything. We just couldn't contain our excitement.

This week we go to our first doctor's visit to get the confirmation that I am, in fact, pregnant and the official due date...which according to the internet calculators should be right around May 15th.

Wish us luck, I'm going to be a nervous wreck and probably won't hear a single word the doctor says.

Congratulations! We're looking forward to meeting the new addition. Think positive thoughts and focus on a healthy baby!

I think I am the lucky one.... I get another grandchild to play with. I am so excited for you two and know you will make great parents, as has my other adult children and their spouses. Be positive and enjoy every day of your pregnancy as the exciting journey is just beginning.

Well it's about time. The oldest guy in the bunch has finally gotten around to having a kid! Let's see, a May baby would mean that John will be a young 56 at the High School Graduation. Better enjoy them while they're young and you can still keep up with them John!

But seriously, congratulations! You two will be surprised just how much fun watching your kid(s) grow up can be.

Congrats! And welcome to blogging. I look forward to reading all about my new niece/nephew!

It doesn't matter how old I'll be...

I plan on enjoying fatherhood and letting my kid(s) keep me feeling young (and tired) for as long as possible. My view is that when my kid(s) make me feel old, by golly, at least I'll have a leg to stand on...

John I am with you on the old part. Or should I say I have beat you there. The kids will keep you young.

Can't wait to hear how it went at the docs.

I am excited and I know you two are bouncing off the walls.
