The Countdown

My goodness how time flies! A little over a year ago I was getting married. Now I'm about to become a dad. It's hard to really explain how I feel about that right now because I just don't really know; I have mixed emotions. One thing I can tell you is that I'm happy and excited...but excited with a little hesitation, if that makes any sense. You see! It's hard to describe. The hesitation is that I'm walking in to a world of unexpected adventure and so I'm slightly nervous.

The last few weeks have been hectic. Between baby showers, birthdays, work and Starcraft 2, I haven't had much time to sit back and just listen to music on the couch, or practice guitar. But you know what, it's a great time in my life. I'm just counting down the days before a number of awesome events unfold...

  • Staycation begins,
  • Baby is due very soon,
  • Parental leave begins, and
  • Family and friends from out of town are coming to visit,
  • Christmas is coming, and
  • The New Year is coming.

So you see, there is SOOOO much to look forward to and I can't wait for things to start unwinding next week!

As an afterthought for expecting dads; by the time you get to month 8, you just want to see your little guy. If you're prepared financially and you've got all the stuff you need for the baby, I don't see why you'd want to wait any longer. But hey, maybe I'll be able to give you some reasons in a couple weeks from now. =)
