I'm going to be a daddy. Just found out yesterday so it is still early, but we've been trying for a while so this is welcome news. It'll be my first! :thumbup:

Is it too early to ask about plans for the nursery? LOL
Yeah, we have the room but it is currently my office. I'm getting booted out of there in the coming months and will have to do some painting once we know if it is a boy or a girl. That'll be a while though.

Told my wife last night that I didn't know whether to jump for joy and then puke or to puke and then jump for joy!

I would have to assume you will have a new avatar soon. My daughter and son in law used to send us pitchers of their dogs all the time until they gave us a grandson.

Congratulations, KC!

From what I've read of your posts here, I think you'll make a great dad. You have a pretty good handle on when to be flexible, and when to dig your heels in. Every human (kids especially) needs boundaries, but every human will (and should) rebel against excessive, or lack of, control.

For the first year or so, dad certainly can be involved, but mom is the refrigerator. lol. When JR starts crawling/ walking/ talking/ exploring his world, that's when the real fun begins. We still have our cute little family words and phrases. For example, it isn't cement, it's nement. This originated when my oldest was about 2, and helping me pour some fenceposts with concrete. Stuff like this went a long way toward getting us through the rough spots.

I remember when my oldest was born (he'll be 25 next month!!). My wife was a nurse, and wanted me to be in the delivery room. I really didn't think much of the idea, but went along anyway.

After cradling my son in my arms when he was less that 1 minute old, there was absolutely nothing that could have kept me from being there for the other two babies. There's no feeling anywhere like holding your very own newborn! It just doesn't get any better than that!

Best to ya!

Rob
